Melbourne misses out (so far).
Ubisoft announced its newest VR escape room, Prince of Persia The Dagger of Time.
“Developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time is for all ages. Two, three or four players team up and work together to solve puzzles and find a way out of a reimagined Fortress of Time,” Ubisoft said of the new game.
“In the story, players are summoned by Kaileena, the Empress of Time. They are asked to help her to stop the evil plans of a Magi who is attempting to restore the sands to the Hourglass of Time and create an army of Sand Monsters. To successfully escape the fortress, players must use cooperative teamwork and problem-solving skills to complete objectives, utilizing powers such as time control from the dagger of time.”
A release date for the location-based VR game hasn’t been announced as yet, but Ubisoft has confirmed it will head to the following centres within Australia:
- Sydney, NSW: VR Kingdom (Rosebery)
- Canberra, NSW: Mind Trap
- Rockhampton, QLD: Virtual World
- Adelaide, SA: Untethered VR
