Miami - November 11th - Hyper realistic, tactical next-generation virtual reality shooter, VAIL VR and its developer, AEXLAB, have today announced VAIL Social. Intent on creating a positive hub for all, the online-multiplayer shooter is expanding its social tools and spaces, allowing players to meet with friends within its virtual world to play mini-games, listen to music or even watch movies together.

The long requested community features will not only provide lobby activities for players as they prepare to dive into VAIL VR’s competitive mode, but also act as standalone entertainment for those who just want to kick back and relax with friends. Whether it’s dancing at a nightclub, meditating in relaxation spaces, or even playing musical instruments, VAIL Social offers players the opportunity to meet new people, make friends and grow existing friendships within the VAIL VR universe.

With the first activities set to roll out next year, and with AEXLAB encouraging their community to steer the scope and content of VAIL Social, now has never been a better time to dive into VAIL VR’s competitive world.

“We’re incredibly excited for VAIL Social. It’s a place for people to meet, make friends, and share new experiences. AEXLAB believes VR is a first class social experience and it’s important for the community to have individual places for themselves and their friends, where they can relax after intense play in VAIL VR.” - Jonathan Ovadia, CEO of AEXLAB.

VAIL VR is currently hosting a closed alpha where those invited will be one of the first to test VAIL Social. Interested players can request access on the Steam page, or join the VAIL VR Discord.

Media interviews are available upon request.
