Triotech Enters VR Market in Partnership with Ubisoft

Triotech and Ubisoft

  Triotech (Booth #954) will enter the virtual reality (VR) market by partnering with Ubisoft, a digital interactive attractions company, announced on the Expo show floor.
“It’s a multi-title agreement, so hopefully, it will be a partnership that lasts many years,” said Ernest Yale, founder, president, and CEO of Triotech.
The creator, publisher, and distributor of interactive entertainment provided content for Triotech’s latest offering, a VR maze based on Ubisoft’s popular family-friendly “Rabbids” franchise, which is being shown at the Expo. The fully modular product only requires a 10-square-meter footprint.
“You’ve tried VR before, but you’ve never tried an attraction like this one,” Yale said. “It’s fun, simple, and compelling—and it’s only a first.”
Following “Rabbids,” Ubisoft is developing content for Triotech based on the hit action-adventure “Assassin’s Creed” property, said Deborah Papiernik, senior vice president of new business for Ubisoft. The new VR maze—to be released in 2018—will center on the company’s latest “Assassin’s Creed” game, where players explore the mysteries of an Egyptian temple.
“You will definitely have the impression that you’re in a temple when you try this experience,” Papiernik promised.
