LAI Games are in the midst of development for their upcoming VR social title Arcade Legend. Coming soon in 2022, players will be able to customize and share their arcades in a dual release for Steam VR and Oculus.
In Arcade Legend, Everyone is Invited to the Fun
Arcade Legend is both a simulator and a building-type title. Players are tasked with cleaning up and restoring an old arcade center. With the area as your playing field, you’ll be free to customize and organize your own arcade with a selection of different games. These will feature officially licensed games that are open-to-play for you and your friends. Additionally, you can accumulate Reputation to unlock new games.
Be social, or be competitive. The game will include global leaderboards to see who’s topping the charts. Or, you can always just visit a buddy’s entertainment center to see what they have set up. More games will be added in the future with free and paid DLC. LAI Games is continuously securing licensing deals with arcade manufacturers to bring more in coin-op experiences.
