Today, Ubisoft announced that "Beyond Medusa's Gate," the second location-based virtual reality (VR) Escape Room Experience developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte, is launching on May 7 in the United States and Europe. According to the company, Beyond Medusa's Gate builds on the success of Blue Byte's first VR Escape Room, "Escape the Lost Pyramid," and is available exclusively at location-based entertainment centres

For those curious, Beyond Medusa's Gate is set in the recreation of Ancient Greece from Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Two or four players team up and have sixty minutes to find a way out of a vast Aegean coastal cave where the legendary ship of the Argonauts is anchored. Players can choose their avatars and customize their accessories.

Executive Producer for Ubisoft's Escape Games Cyril Voiron added the following.

Ubisoft's Escape Games are tapping into two popular and growing entertainment trends — combining escape rooms and location-based VR in highly immersive, one-of-a-kind experiences. Beyond Medusa's Gate continues the legacy of our game design and storytelling expertise, pushing the Escape Room experience category with memorable state-of-the-art VR experiences that go beyond what is physically possible.

In our review of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we said it's, "a great entry in the wider series, largely bug-free, with great visuals and tight combat. But many of the new features Ubisoft included aren't as well executed as you might hope from an annual franchise."
