A new pair of 6DoF controllers will be presented for the AR helmet.
Remember Lenovo with their Mirage AR virtual reality helmet, introduced in 2017, and only one video game available to them – Star Wars: Jedi Challenges? If you didn’t give away £ 250 GBP for the device, then maybe not. However, Lenovo does not abandon Augmented Reality (AR) by launching the new Mirage AR device along with new smartphone experiences called Marvel Dimension of Heroes.
To be clear, the headset is not new. It differs from the base one only in an AR video game and two universal 6DoF controllers that are included in the kit. The device went on sale the other day at a cost of $ 249.99 USD. You can buy the new product on Amazon.com and Lenovo.com. New kit lets you take the place of six superheroes
Marvel – Doctors Strange, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Star Lord.
Using the new controllers, you can punch, slice and blow your way through the original Marvel story in Story mode, in which Dred Dormammu, Lord of the Dark Dimension, makes an unexpected attack on Earth with his alliance of supervillains, including Loki, Ronan the Prosecutor, Ultron Prime and Wintery A soldier.
In addition to the story mode, MARVEL Dimension of Heroes also offers the user a survival mode. Gamers have to fight off waves of enemies. The game also has a cooperative mode, which allows you to compete with each other for leadership in the leaderboard.
“The Lenovo Mirage AR with MARVEL Dimension of Heroes is another milestone that demonstrates Lenovo and Marvel’s shared passion for bringing rich, immersive consumer experiences to life with smarter technologies. After many years of working closely with Disney, starting with Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, we are excited to expand this incredibly fun and interactive experience for more gamers and especially Marvel fans, ”says Johnson Jia, Senior Vice President and CEO, Consumer Business Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo in a statement.
The new Lenovo Mirage AR helmet kit is compatible with Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, and both games are freely available for download on iOS and Android devices.
But what if you have a previous version of the Lenovo Mirage AR with a lightsaber? Well, you could guess that because of this controller you will not be able to play MARVEL Dimension of Heroes. Lenovo said universal controllers will be sold separately, but so far no prices or availability information has been mentioned.
Once you get more information about the Lenovo Mirage AR headset, VRcue will let you know.
