- NetEnt introduces worlds first playable VR slot game
- Gonzo’s Quest VR is due to be launched in summer 2018
The company has unveiled a series of innovations at this year’s ICE, including the first fully playable, operator-ready version of Gonzo’s Quest VR.
An immersive world
The new game uses state-of-the-art virtual reality technology to bring the casino classic to life in a new, highly engaging way for players.
It can be accessed through a standard web browser without specific integration needed for operators, or any dedicated apps of downloads on behalf of the players.
All players need do is log into the casino using a mobile device or desktop, hit the VR tab, plug in their own VR headset and they are taken into the highly immersive world of Gonzo’s Quest VR. The game, which has been created and developed using real-time 3-D is set to go live during the summer.
“As a first-mover in virtual reality (VR), NetEnt has been at the forefront of igaming’s application of the technology since revealing its plans for VR in 2016,” says Per Erikson, who is NetEnt’s CEO.
“NetEnt is continuously investigating new ways of developing and distributing games and firmly believes VR has the potential to be an important channel in the future,” he adds.
Busy year for NetEnt
Thus far, this year’s ICE has seen NetEnt showcase a stack of new releases and technological advances, including its full games portfolio. It has also demonstrated an innovative new live casino concept that has been developed in collaboration with operator Mr Green.
Players can also look forward to new slot releases from NetEnt this year, including an official Narcos slot based on the hit TV show and Vikings.
