Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bears Food Truck Rush Location Based VR Game Now Ready To Be Released

After a three month test trial with a small audience, Cartoon Network, AiSolve (the makers of WePlayVR gaming arenas), and game studio PHL Collective are now ready to release the brand new location-based VR game – “We Bare Bears: Food Truck Rush”.

In the family friendly multiplayer VR game, three players take on the roles of Grizz, Panda and Ice Bear in a chaotic food truck kitchen, players will have to cook food and serve customers in different locations. Teamwork is a very important element of the game as it will be the only way to feed as many customers as possible before the time runs out. Even with three people working together as a team, it’s still no easy task, as players will have to contend with dangerous grease fires and random squirrel attacks.

The location-based free-roam experience takes place within a WePlayVR standalone arena, which is made up of 3×3 square metre haptic flooring which responds to movements in the VR game in real-time. Players will feel the truck moving as well as dramatic in-game movement actions such as a sharp turn.

The brand new VR game officially debuted at the DEAL (Dubai Entertainment & Leisure Exhibition) 2019 exhibition on Sunday 24th March, it also made its U.S. debut at the Amusement Expo in Las Vegas today (Tuesday 26th March).
