November 14, 2019 – VRstudios, creator of turn-key multiplayer Virtual Reality attractions for Location-Based Entertainment businesses, has announced the latest exclusive experience for Dave & Buster’s proprietary multiplayer virtual reality simulator – Terminator: Guardian of Fate. The experience is now available to play at Dave & Buster’s locations throughout North America, and puts players into an action adventure rescue mission alongside character Sarah Connor to stop the Terminator.
Sarah Connor guides players through the experience, where players must outrun and outwit the Terminator as they fight through a zombie-style shootout. According to VRstudios, players will never have the same experience twice, as another chapter of the game will be out soon that will add multiple endings. This is also all combined with other elements of variability within the experience, including subtle differences in gameplay.
Terminator: Guardian of Fate features iconic characters Sarah Connor and the Terminator, along with some new characters that were created to support this original narrative. There are also four randomized player avatars and players will be able to use a variety of weapons against the Terminator through a series of weapon upgrades within the game.
“We have really created something very special with Terminator: Guardian of Fate. This is an all-out adrenaline-fueled interactive experience that is a roller coaster of intensity,” said Chanel Summers, VRstudios’ Vice President of Creative Development. “The Terminator is the ultimate movie monster and just when players think they have destroyed it, it comes back! The action is so relentless that you will barely have time to catch your breath!”
VRstudios has teamed up again with development partner Strange Reptile, after working together to build other titles — Star Trek: Dark Remnant, and Men in Black: Galactic Getaway — for Dave & Buster’s. Terminator: Guardian of Fate leverages both VRstudios’ and Strange Reptile’s experience in Location-Based Virtual Reality, including VRstudios’ understanding of the Dave & Buster’s simulator. Building on an initial nationwide deployment in June 2018, VRstudios’ VRcade Attraction Management Platform (AMP) now manages and operates 143 individual simulators, each running five unique game titles, in Dave & Buster’s locations across North America.
