The era of merely satisfying gamers' needs with gaming accessories and devices is long gone. The latest in the world of gaming is wearable tech. Imagine a vest that lets you feel the adrenaline-fueled actions while sensing the heart-pounding moment right on your body. Good part: we are not merely asking you to imagine, Ubisoft in partnership with OWO has turned this thought into reality.
They’ve designed a haptic feedback vest that enables you to actually feel the movements and actions of Basim, the protagonist of Assassin's Creed Mirage, as he parkours the streets of ninth-century Baghdad in the game.
The vest features Mirage aesthetics and is made from lightweight lycra. It is equipped with a series of high-conductivity electrodes and haptic pads strategically placed across the torso and arms. These components let you experience a wide range of sensations. You can also control the haptic sensations with the My OWO smartphone app. You can basically customise your settings and fine-tune the intensity of the haptic feedback to suit your preferences. Also, the haptic feedback vest in the Assassin's Creed Mirage Edition is completely wireless so no more tangled wires and movement restrictions.
Inside the Assassin's Creed Mirage Edition of the OWO Haptic Gaming System, you'll find the patented OWO Skin, 20 gel pads, an 'OWO device,' and a game code. To keep you powered up and organised, it also comes with a charging cable and a handy storage pouch. The system is said to be compatible with PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
While the price for the Assassin's Creed Mirage Edition has not been disclosed thus far, it's worth noting that the Founder Edition of the system is currently available for purchase on OWO's website at a price of 499 Euros (₹45,953). Considering that Assassin's Creed Mirage Edition includes additional components such as a game code, it is highly probable that it will surpass this price point.
