VRstudios Showcases Its First Multiplayer, Wireless VR Game “Barking Irons” at International Consumer VR Show in Vancouver, BC, May 14

Western Shoot-Out Game Is First to Feature Wireless Head-Mounted
Display and Multiplayer Capabilities for Full Immersion and Interaction
Without Any Wires, Phones or Backpacks

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AmusementparkVR–VRstudios, the emerging leader in the global delivery of wireless,
full-motion, and multi-user VR experiences for entertainment and
commercial enterprise customers, announced today that the company will
showcase its new “Barking Irons” western shoot-out game at the
International Consumer VR Exhibition and Conference, May 14, in the
Vancouver Convention Centre.

VRstudios’ “Barking Irons” is the first VR game to feature multiplayer
capabilities combined with the industry’s first wireless head-mounted
display running on a high-powered gaming computer – all provided without
the need for any wires, mobile phones or backpacks.

“This is a revolutionary development for full-motion VR gameplay,” said
Jamie Kelly of VRcade, which is VRstudios’ gaming and entertainment
division. “‘Barking Irons’ is the first multiplayer game that our studio
has developed, and it really highlights the benefits of a full-motion,
untethered VR platform. The ability to physically move around a space
with another player makes the experience feel much more natural and
keeps you immersed in the game.”

VRstudios’ unique capabilities make their gaming experiences extremely
popular with customers and at industry shows. Its developers and
executives are looking forward to seeing the elevated level of
interaction with their new game at the upcoming CVR show. “Our games
definitely draw crowds. Now with ‘Barking Irons,’ your physical actions
are matched perfectly by the game and your athleticism is a core element
to your level of success in the game,” said Ivan Blaustein, director,
product integration at VRstudios. “This also makes spectating a game
much more like a sporting event than a video game. We are seeing a
glimpse of the next wave of eSports.”

VRstudios’ systems, content and experiences are gaining momentum around
the globe. During the last month, VRstudios has announced worldwide
agreements with prominent amusement theme park and arcade companies
Meraas’ Hub Zero in Dubai, Simuline of Korea and Denmark’s Smartlaunch,
which operate globally.
