Will we be seeing World Of Tanks VR Arcades soon?

Wargaming has experimented with VR with 360 video promos and the Domination Mode on World of Tanks PC but with a new announcement the company may be pushing for more.  

Wargaming has announced a deal with VRTech, a Moscow-based company, which focuses on VR technology. The collaboration is set to combine VRTech’s solutions and Wargaming’s expertise in game design and visual effects. The companies aim at delivering new common initiatives that will introduce engaging VR experiences to the European market.

“The potential of taking location-based VR to a new level is an opportunity we had to capitalize on,” said Aleksandr Zezulin, R&D Operations Director at Wargaming. “With this partnership, we are planning to change the public perception of VR from a one-time experience to a source of fun, re-playable entertainment. This type of new business for Wargaming is a scalable, successful set-up that will help us produce high-quality entertainment.”

Wargaming has already pushed 360 content for promotional purpose.

“We’re excited to announce our strategic partnership with Wargaming,” said Yuri Krylov, CEO of VRTech. “This unique collaboration has all the chances of changing the VR market, and we welcome location and IP owners in EU to join our partnership on this exciting journey.”

VRTech is known for location-based VR solutions, including CinemaVR and PolygonVR. Launched in December 2016, the VR booths already operate in over 20 locations in cinemas and malls in Russia’s largest cities.
