Triotech, along with Ubisoft, has launched a new adventure for its VR Maze attraction – Assassin’s Creed: The Temple of Anubis.
The new VR Maze title was announced at IAAPA’s attractions expo in Orlando, and is set in Ancient Egypt as reimagined in Ubisoft’s 2017 game Assassin’s Creed Origins. Players take on the role of Bayek, the game’s hero, as they explore a mysterious temple.
Staying true to Assassin’s Creed Origins, players wield a virtual bow & arrow to fight against enemies. Because walls and obstacles of the digital world can be touched in the real world, players live a full immersion as they dodge enemies’ arrows, walk across shattered wooden planks, and ultimately experience the iconic leap of faith made famous by the video game franchise.
“We are really excited to partner with Ubisoft on the well-known franchise Assassin’s Creed. Already more than 100 000 people have experienced our VR Maze all over the world, and this next chapter will definitely widen its appeal.”
– Ernest Yale, founder and CEO of Triotech
“We’re continuing our expansion into other areas of entertainment, leveraging our popular game brands such as Assassin’s Creed to create new experiences for fans and to capture the imagination of new audiences.”
– Deborah Papiernik, senior vice president, new business, Ubisoft
Requiring only 120 sq. ft, the VR Maze has a wide appeal for FECs and amusement parks as the digital content can easily be switched by clicking one button, making it possible to switch between three different experiences: Ubisoft’s Virtual Rabbids: The Big Maze, a funny and family-friendly experience, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed®: The Temple of Anubis, and Minotaur, which all appeal to different demographic audiences.
