New Omniverse Game: Red October
We released a thrilling new Omniverse game this month: Red October. Red October is a multiplayer game for up to six players in the style of “Call of Duty” and other military shooters. The game features eight different weapons and two character classes. Players compete for the most kills against friends or AI-controlled bots in a challenging deathmatch. See a trailer video and a few screenshots below:
With the release of Red October, our Omniverse content platform now boasts 18 top VR games for players to choose from. We currently have 7 more games in development, including several multiplayer games.
Upcoming Updates to VRZ and Primordian
We plan to release updates this month to both VRZ and Primordian. The update to VRZ fixes the problem of players at local arcades getting paired with random players from around the world in multiplayer matches. The update to Primordian includes new levels and brings back the functionality of changing weapons with the controller’s grip button.
Physical Game Assets and New Accessories
Several operators have asked us for physical game assets and props to promote the Omni and its games at their venues. We now offer two such marketing assets for sale on our website, an eye-catching retractable banner and a life-size standee:
This month we also released several new Omni accessories for sale, including the Omni Kids Kit, the XS Harness Insert, and VR Blinders. These products are available to U.S. customers on our website at www.virtuix.com/products. International customers can obtain these accessories from their local distributor.
