STOCKHOLM November 18, 2021 – Your mech is ready. The crowd roars. Welcome to the arena... In a new teaser trailer released today, Resolution Games - the studio behind hit VR games such as Demeo, Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale and Blaston - has revealed the first details of one of its next VR titles. Planned for a 2022 release across leading VR platforms, the sport of the future game, Ultimechs, will put players in control of mechanized professional athletes as they compete for victory.
 
“With Ultimechs we have created an entirely new gameplay mechanic that could only exist in the immersive world of VR,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “Sure anyone can kick a ball into a net, but only in the world of Ultimechs can you and your mech punch it in by firing a rocket fist and controlling the trajectory as you follow along its path. And that just scratches the surface of Ultimechs. We’ve really stretched the boundaries of what can be done in VR in this game, and we can’t wait to share more details.”
 
In the trailer, potential athletes get a glimpse into the future of sports: it’s state-of-the-art, it’s quick, and if you don’t have the speed, precision and rocketry that it takes to defeat your opponents, you’re done for. More information on the game will be revealed in the coming months. 
 
Resolution Games has become synonymous with multiplayer VR experiences in recent years, offering a catalog of games that keep players connected in both competitive and collaborative ways, including the growing virtual tabletop fantasy world of Demeo. Ultimechs is the second VR futuresport from Resolution Games following the success of its 1v1 dueling experience Blaston and will continue to grow this catalog of distinct, original multiplayer experiences that the company is known for.
