HOLOGATE, a global leader in turnkey compact multiplayer VR systems, will be bringing a new game, Blasters of the Universe: VR Bullet Hell, to more than 400 locations across the globe. This is the latest addition to its considerable library of immersive and interactive games, currently enjoyed at over 400 venues in 36 different countries, with more than 8 million players to date.
Blasters of the Universe: VR Bullet Hell is a highly-stylised VR shooter that can be played cooperatively by teams of up to four people. While playing in a retro 90’s virtual environment, gamers must survive successive waves of bullets and bad guys.

As the barrage of bullets continues, players need to duck, dodge, twist and turn in order to survive. To fight back, they are given a choice of five unique weapons to pick from for each level, meaning they have an individual experience and must decide which weapon is the best for each new challenge. At the end of each level, there is also a boss to be defeated.
“As businesses start to reopen, we are proud to be partnering with HOLOGATE, the largest VR entertainment network, on the launch of the Arcade edition of our popular PC VR shooter game Blasters of The Universe,” says Kathryn Rawson, VP of Content of Secret Location.
“We know that now more than ever, families and friends are going to be craving meaningful shared experiences, and we’re thrilled that our multiplayer game is coming to market at a time when the competition and intense action that characterizes the Blasters franchise can provide some much-deserved escapism and all-around fun.”
Earlier this month, HOLOGATE released the latest data on its weekly player activity, which shows that the total number of players per week has returned to pre-pandemic levels.
