Virtuix unveils ‘Blackbeard’ pirate-themed game for Omni Arena
Virtuix, creator of the “Omni Arena” virtual reality esports attraction, has unveiled “Blackbeard: The Trials of Skull Island,” its latest game for Omni Arena. In Blackbeard, up to four players work together as pirates to loot treasure, fight villainous foes, and achieve high scores on the leaderboard.
Each game has four distinct rounds, including a cooperative puzzle challenge and a final boss fight, providing players with lots of variety and reasons to play again and again.
“Blackbeard is Omni Arena’s most kid-friendly game to date,” said Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix. “It’s also a blast for adults and esports players. We designed the game for high repeat play. It’s easy for everyone to play, but thanks to its variety and depth, it’s hard to master. No two rounds are ever the same.”
Blackbeard will be part of Omni Arena’s weekly and monthly esports tournaments. The top teams on Blackbeard’s global leaderboard will win cash prizes from a $100,000 prize pool.
Omni Arena is a full-body virtual reality attraction for up to four players. Motion platforms inside the attraction enable players to walk and run around inside video games. Guests can compete for top spots on leaderboards and win a share of a $100,000 esports prize pool sponsored by Virtuix and HP.
