A brand new virtual reality (VR) experience, “Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future”, has opened its doors at The Spectrum Center in Irvine, California. This multi-sensory, free-roaming VR experience combines technology, video games and storytelling for a unique experience around the iconic property.
The mission enlists a team of up to four players to be teleported through time to a dystopian world to work together disabling a Skynet satellite. Teams must accomplish several tasks using tangible, real life objects mixed with the virtual world, while using their weapon to eliminate Terminators from all directions.
The mission involves going undercover, which combines the player with a mechanical Terminator body. The 3D facial scanning puts guests directly in the world itself, allowing players to see themselves and each other instead of a generic identifier. This is a fun feature when it comes to the gameplay highlight video available for purchase.
A point system also makes this specific VR play more like a video game. This competitive element allows guests to return to improve their score or maintain their spot on the leaderboard.
To book this experience, visit spaces.com. Tickets are $30 and the experience is recommended for ages 10 and up.
