“Controlling time in VR is a one-of-a-kind experience where players will feel the power of the dagger of time in their own hands,” said Cyril Voiron, executive producer for Ubisoft’s Escape Games.
“Time-control is only part of the immersion as we transport players to experience larger-than-life adventures in our games.”
Players are summoned by Kaileena, the ‘Empress of Time’, who they help put a stop to the evil plans of a Magi.
The Magi is attempting to restore the sands to the Hourglass of Time and create an army of Sand Monsters.

“After just two years in operation, we have now partnered with more than 300 locations around the globe,” said Benedikt Grindel, managing director of Ubisoft Düsseldorf.
“What started as a pilot project became one of the largest distribution networks in the location-based entertainment market, which makes us really proud,” he added.
