The esports developer focussed on creating a virtual stadium experience, Virtex Stadium, has partnered with Meta and Echo VR to bring the live sports experience to virtual reality.
Last year, the company had introduced a virtual venue system to allow users to attend virtual esports matches within its VR stadiums. Now, it has announced a closed beta for a new stadium built for Echo VR. The platform will enable users to attend and watch Echo VR matches in VR, similar to a real-life experience.
The company has released a teaser that provides a closer look at the remarkable arena exterior. The VR stadium has been built in partnership with Ready At Dawn. Furthermore, Meta will allow esports fans to tune in to Echo VR’s competitive gameplay.
Watching Echo VR at full scale as an audience member would be an exciting experience. However, Virtex’s system will work a bit differently. Fans can view games as 3D holograms in the center of the stadium space. It provides a similar experience to the isometric view if a game was happening in real-time on the stadium floor.
Nevertheless, last year, the company stated that it would enable viewers to “jump from their seat right into the game map as the match unfolds around them.” Therefore, there could be varied avenues for the fans to witness Echo VR matches.
Virtex Stadium is taking applications for its closed beta on PC VR via the Virtex Discord channel. Moreover, the beta is set to begin soon.
