While it may have been a bit of a gimmick at first, VR is one to truly not be underestimated these days thanks to the advancements in technology.
However, the Meta Quest 3 comes in at a more reasonable $499, after making its way to the market in October.
An official synopsis of Asgard’s Wrath 2 reads: “After promising you untold power, the trickster god Loki has betrayed you.
“While you remain trapped in his prison, he wreaks havoc – tearing the universe asunder.
“Suddenly, battle is thrust upon you, and you find yourself whisked away to the eerie landscape known only as The Inbetween. Here the mysterious Weavers reveal that you alone can save the fabric of reality from Loki’s destruction.
“The threads of fate carry you to the realms of Egypt and beyond. Here you must gain followers, uncover mysteries, battle monsters and master the skills of the gods. Help the gods of Ancient Egypt defeat their enemies and in turn, they will help you defeat yours.”
In perhaps one of the most epic VR stunts of all time, the world of Asgard’s Wrath 2 interrupted the Golden State Warriors @ Phoenix Suns game, with Richard Jefferson, the game announcer, immersing those in attendance and the many more watching at home.
Jefferson informed the audience that a mysterious portal had opened just outside the Footprint Center in Downtown Phoenix, with the chaotic scene unfolding outside.
The monsters found in Asgard’s Wrath 2 was viewed by the estimated 25 million people watching the Thanksgiving game, bringing the new VR experience well and truly into the limelight.
