Ubisoft Blue Byte, a subsidiary of French gaming company Ubisoft, has developed a new location-based VR escape room experience.

Called Beyond Medusa's Gate, the escape room, which is launching at several locations across the US and Europe in May, builds on the success of the brand's Escape the Lost Pyramid experience.

The adventure begins with players choosing from one of six customisable avatars before they are 'transported' to Ancient Greece, where they find themselves in a coastal cave on the Aegean sea with the legendary ship of the Argonauts. Players then have 60 minutes to escape the cave, using a combination of teamwork and problem-solving.

Cyril Voiron, executive producer at Ubisoft's Escape Games, says: "Ubisoft is tapping into two two popular and growing entertainment trends - combining escape rooms and location-based VR in highly immersive, one-of-a-kind immersive experiences."

"Beyond Medusa's Gate continues the legacy of our game design and storytelling expertise, pushing the Escape Room experience category with memorable state-of-the-art VR experiences that go beyond what is physically possible."

Benedikt Grindle, MD at Ubisoft Blue Byte, says: "The level of immersion in Beyond Medusa's Gate is astonishing and will make players feel like they are truly in the game. Our goal is to revolutionise the location-based entertainment industry and bring virtual reality to a mainstream audience."
