PokerStars VR, a division of Flutter Entertainment, has announced that it will be a launch title for Meta’s revolutionary Quest Pro mixed reality headset, which will be available on October 25.
PokerStars VR is one of a small handful of games that will be released with Meta’s flagship device, which provides players with better performance as well as complete color passthrough for a full mixed-reality experience, face and eye tracking, and other cutting-edge features.
Lucky VR, the PokerStars VR developers, has been hard at work behind the scenes devising innovative methods to fully utilize these next-generation features and incorporate them into the free-to-play social casino videogame.
Dive Into the PokerStars VR World
Players who use Quest Pro will be able to customize their environment to fit their preferences. A fully immersive virtual reality experience will be available, as will partial immersion, which will allow players to bring objects or spaces from their physical world into the game via editable ‘passthrough windows,’ and full mixed reality, which will allow players to bring core virtual game elements into their own world.
Face and eye tracking technology will also provide a new social dimension to PokerStars VR. Players may build and witness lifelike face emotions in their customized avatars thanks to the hallmark enhancement. Players can sit together and grin, grimace, and look at their cards, exactly as in a live setting.
Meanwhile, advanced haptics will contribute to deeper, more interesting gaming, allowing players to fully experience the hundreds of toys, props, and things accessible.
Silence is golden — and in PokerStars VR it doesn’t cost a thing. Point your mute control at the annoying friend with the terrible trash talk and you’ll be a winner in more ways than one. #QuestNight
