Virtuix, developer of the Omni virtual reality treadmill and Omni Arena esports attraction, has unveiled Elite Force, the new Omni Arena game.
Virtuix is proud to announce the latest game for Omni Arena, Elite Force. The company unveiled the new game at IAAPA Expo 2019 in Orlando, Florida, where attendees were invited to try it for themselves. Elite Force is a military shooter-style game, where up to four players battle each other for special weapons and the top spot on the leaderboard.
“Elite Force is our most appealing game to date,” says Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix. “It turns Omni Arena into a modern-day laser-tag attraction that immerses gamers in their favourite military combat world. It gives millions of fans of blockbuster games like Call of Duty a new reason to visit a family entertainment centre.”
“This is the closest thing to playing Call of Duty in virtual reality,” says Eddie Hamann, managing member of Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, the entertainment centre in Orlando, FL where Elite Force debuted. “This experience is so appealing and unique, there’s nothing like it. Some guests would drive from over an hour away to come play this.”
Omni Arena is a full-body VR esports attraction with motion platforms that allow players to run around directly inside popular video games, such as first-person shooters. Guests can also compete for top spots on the leaderboard to be in with a chance of winning cash from the $100,000 prize pool, sponsored by Virtuix and HP.
IAAPA Expo 2019 attendees can find the Virtuix team at booth #2686 where they can try the Omni Arena for themselves. Demos can be booked here.
Earlier this month, Virtuix announced the installation of a second Omni Arena for Dave and Buster’s in Texas. The first installation was at its Austin location, and the latest one can now be found in Houston.
