Justice League, Magic Leap And Quake II: The Five Biggest Stories In VR This Week

Here are the biggest stories in VR over the past five days”
Zero Latency VR Comes To Vegas

The bright lights of Vegas have now been introduced to the flashy flair of VR and it looks like it’s a match made in heaven. We got an inside look at Zero Latency’s new multiplayer VR experience at the MGM Grand casino. With home-based VR currently limited to single-player room scale experiences, installations like these are your only chance to experience local multiplayer in VR on a bigger scale, which explains why there’s so much interest in them.
You Can Now Play Quake II In VR

We all love a good mod, and this one for id Software’s Quake II is well worth checking out for fans of room scale VR. No series rules the arena shooter genre like Quake and playing it in VR looks like an intense rush on both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. This is a great way to tide you over until the arrival of id’s first full VR game, Doom VFR, on PSVR and Vive in November.
Omni Reveals Omniverse

Virtuix’s Omni treadmill allows you to walk inside VR, but it’s hard to know exactly what apps support it. That’s why Omniverse sounds like such a good idea; it’s a propietary platform that holds everything you can play with the kit and also allows operators to control how long players can spend in VR and more. Could this new system keep Omni relevant in the growing VR arcade scene?
Justice League VR Isn’t Half Bad

The Justice League movie may not look all that hot, but the tie-in VR experience seems like it might not be all that terrible. A bigger, more expansive app is on the way, but a taster experience launched on Google Cardboard this week, giving us our first peek at new minigames in which we play as Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and more. Look for future releases on bigger headsets soon.
Magic Leap Gets A Rumored Price And Release Window

We still feel no closer to learning solid facts about the Magic Leap AR headset than we did when it was announced years ago, but an interesting new report suggests we may be finding out something very, very soon. Bloomberg cites close sources in saying Magic Leap is planning a limited launch within the next six months for a device that will cost anywhere between $1,500 to $2,000. Yikes.
