Hasbro And Oculus Bring Trivial Pursuit and other gaming brands To Oculus Go
Hasbro Inc is working with Oculus to bring Virtual Reality experiences for Boggle, Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly to people with Oculus Go, for the first time. The VR games will be accessible in the Oculus Store wherever Oculus Rooms is available for Oculus Go, across 23 countries. The launch of the games is a part of a major update for Oculus Rooms, an Oculus app that allows people to spend time with friends in VR while enjoying social activities like playing games and watching TV. Oculus Go users will be able to play games head-to-head with friends in Oculus Rooms with life-like avatars in fully customizable environments. Boggle will be the first game to launch this June; Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly will be released later this year.
“Gaming is a major strategic differentiator for our company and as gaming platforms and audiences continue to expand globally we are excited to work with Oculus to bring our beloved brands to new audiences in VR,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro. “Our consumers are technologically savvy and we strive to provide them with products that fit their lifestyle, which includes, engaging content, enhanced play experiences and digital interaction. Bringing Hasbro Gaming experiences to the virtual world was a logical next step in this evolution. We can’t wait to see how much fun people will have playing Boggle in VR!”
