Fans of Catan now how another frontier to explore. Asmodee Digital and developer Experiment 7 have released Catan VR, a virtual reality board game experience for Samsung’s Gear VR and Oculus Rift. The game gives players a chance to play the classic board game in virtual reality against players from around the world.
Players are now able to play with (against) friends from around the world in the game’s multiplayer mode or they can find new opponents using the game’s online matchmaking option. Those looking to build up their skills can play against AI controlled avatars.
Catan VR is developed by Experiment 7 in partnership with Asmodee Digital, Catan Studio, and Catan GmbH. This is the second digital Catan game released in the past few months following the mobile text adventure Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers which launched on Android in November.
Speaking about virtual reality, Catan creator Klaus Teuber said “Catan is about exploring new frontiers, What better way to express that than by venturing into the exciting new world of virtual reality? The immersion made possible by this platform captures the boundless opportunity of taking that first step onto undiscovered lands.”
Catan VR is $14.99 on both Samsung’s Gear VR and Oculus Rift, and cross play between the two VR platforms is available. Here is a trailer of the game with a closer look at the game:
