Starbreeze to open VR arcade in LA

Starbreeze will create a virtual reality arcade in Los Angeles later on this year to give the public access to premium  virtual reality experiences with their recently launched StarVR headset, the company announced in a press release.

Called Project StarCade, it will feature OverKill‘s Walking Dead virtual reality experience, although the company is also open to giving developers an opportunity to put their own content in the StarCade, said Starbreeze CTO Emmanuel Marquez in the announcement.

“We’re developing our own StarCade catalogue of experiences, but we’re open to any content,” he said.

The location is yet to be named.

The company’s main claim to fame is the jaw-dropping 210-degree-degree field of view of its StarVR virtual reality headset,  launched last year with the Walking Dead experience. It uses two quad-HD panels to deliver 2560 by 1440 pixel resolution to each eye.
