The previously announced Far Cry VR arcade game is being launched in places today, and we’ve got our first look.
Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity is a Zero Latency VR experience and is launched at 33 of the company’s locations. The game is set before the events of Far Cry 3 and has the same tropical island environment as the game’s iconic villian, Vas. Check out the trailer below.
Up to eight players team up to try to escape the island, armed with rifle-shaped controllers. During the experience, they will be assessed throughout the island by elevator, cross gorges on shaky platforms and meet Vas and his followers in a climate fight. Weapons include machine guns and crossbows, and Zero Latency̵
Sites that now include Far Cry VR span the globe, including sites in the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. You can book tickets here – other Zero Latency experiences cost around $ 45 per person, so expect that to be the case here.

But with so much about the pandemic still uncertain, it remains to be seen if now is the right time for VR arcades to come again.
