Location-based entertainment (LBE) attraction already has some big-name IP’s available for guests to immerse themselves in, including Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR. Today, the company has announced its latest virtual reality (VR) experience in conjunction with Marvel Studios and ILMxLAB, Avengers: Damage Control.
Rather than playing one of the famous characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) like you would in Marvel Powers United VR, in Avengers: Damage Control you fight alongside them. Obviously, you’re suped-up thanks to Wakanda’s own tech genius Shuri, who has enlisted you to test her latest prototype design: Emergency Response Suits, created with a proprietary blend of Wakandan and Stark Industries technology.
When sinister forces appear you’re called into battle, fighting alongside famous Avengers like Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, the Wasp and more. You’ll visit iconic locations from the MCU universe and thanks to The VOID’s immersive technology be able to explore real-world sets whilst experiencing physical effects like heat and wind.
“We’re always looking for new stories and corners of the universe for our characters to explore. Now, after more than a decade of amazing support, we are excited to give fans the same opportunity: to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios in a studio. “Expanding how people can experience the MCU is something we’re always trying to do, and in Avengers: Damage Control, we wanted to give fans the chance to suit up alongside some their favourite heroes for the first time ever.”
“The opportunity to bring such a beloved universe alive through immersive storytelling has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Shereif Fattouh, Senior Producer, ILMxLAB. “Avengers: Damage Control lets you feel what it’s like to shoot repulsor blasts with your own two hands, suited up in Shuri’s latest technology. This original adventure allows you to go beyond the screen, and become a character in the story itself.”
