“Dungeons & Dragons” is best played with friends. Finally, AltspaceVR and Wizards of the Coast has brought the virtual version of “Dungeons & Dragons.” The partnership will officially host licensed virtual versions of the game in the AltspaceVR environment.Advertisement
Wizards of the Coast recently purchased the 1997 “Dungeons & Dragons” franchise and partnered with AltspaceVR to bring the same experience to users, though virtually. Now it is possible for friends from any corner of the world to play the game.
Nathan Stewart, the brand director for “Dungeons & Dragons,” said, “AltspaceVR bridges the gap between Dungeons & Dragons video games and physically sitting around a table with friends.”
The polyhedral dice that is needed to play the game is virtually created by AltspaceVR. Apart from that, some characters are recreated. The company has created various components of the game to make them look real. Dungeon, wilderness and city-themed pieces are some of the virtual creations for “Dungeons & Dragons.”
AltspaceVR has created a new virtual room for the game. “Tavern” is where players can gather for the game. Even spectators will have a great time as they can also join.
AltspaceVR will offer a free login for users. Once the user logs in, he can search for other parties who are interested to play the game. They can also search for new campaign.
Eric Romo, founder and CEO of AltspaceVR, mentioned in a statement, “D&D is extremely social, which is why we are so excited to offer it in AltspaceVR,” adding, “Players love it! We’ve seen them hang out together for sessions lasting six hours—previously only developers spent that long in VR.”
