Ghostbusters VR Academy Launches

This looks like fun.


Today, the immersive VR experience Ghostbusters VR Academy makes its debut in the world’s largest out-of-home VR network. Published by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR) and developed by HOLOGATE, the worldwide leader in compact location-based virtual reality entertainment, Ghostbusters VR Academy is now available at 450+ HOLOGATE locations across 42 countries worldwide.

VR fans can now enlist at the new, fully-immersive Ghostbusters training academy, learn to be a real Ghostbuster, and fulfill a lifelong dream to operate iconic ghostbusting equipment in two distinct games across two HOLOGATE platforms – the pioneering multiplayer VR platform, HOLOGATE ARENA, and premium VR motion simulator, HOLOGATE BLITZ.

In the ARENA game, academy members in training strap on their proton packs and work together as a team in high-risk ghost encounter scenarios. They learn how to trap or blow ghosts to smithereens, all under the safeguard of academy grounds, of course.

In the BLITZ game, trainees will take the wheel in the prototype ECTO hovercraft, a vehicle exclusive to the academy. Players compete to see who is the fastest, most skillful driver in a high-speed race.

“We are delighted to have collaborated with Sony Pictures VR on this experience,” said Leif Petersen, CEO and founder of HOLOGATE. “Set in one of the world’s most beloved franchises, Ghostbusters VR Academy offers players an amazing shared social experience that family and friends can enjoy. Our company-wide mission is to create a social play setting, an escape from reality that creates powerful, long-lasting memories of good times. Ghostbusters VR Academy is the perfect fit for our ARENA and BLITZ platforms, and we can’t wait for our recruits to start their training!”

Ghostbusters VR Academy takes full advantage of HOLOGATE’s location-based entertainment technology to immerse players in the Ghostbusters universe with friends and family, it’s an absolute thrill for Ghostbusters fans old and new,” said Jake Zim, Senior Vice President, Virtual Reality at Sony Pictures Entertainment. “Players can strap on a proton pack and operate a brand-new hovercraft version of the ECTO to train to be a real Ghostbuster in an amazing academy setting, complete with iconic characters like Slimer and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. This story expanding, fantasy-fulfilling experience is only possible in virtual reality.”

Ghostbusters VR Academy on HOLOGATE ARENA launches on the first day of the Amusement Expo in Las Vegas, the most influential conference and trade show dedicated to the amusement entertainment industry, with the launch on HOLOGATE BLITZ following soon after.
