Future of Multiplayer Gaming with Virtual and Augmented Reality

The future of multiplayer gaming is not what you might think. It's not just about playing against someone else, but also about the room you are playing in. What if your app could not only create a whole new world for you to play in, but even transform the game space you are already playing in?

When you connect to an online game, like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, you're all alone in your room. You can't see anyone else around you. You can't hear people talking or laughing in the background. There is no real world interaction at all. With VR and AR technology, it's possible to bring players together in a virtual space to truly feel like they are playing together.

In addition to the cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes, virtual reality offers a unique experience in which players exist in a shared space. It also allows for social interactions with other players while wearing a virtual headset.

There are numerous benefits when it comes to multiplayer gaming in virtual reality. One is that you can play with up to four players in an immersive environment. Another benefit is that you never have to worry about the other player's reaction time because there is no delay between turns.

To understand the future of multiplayer gaming with virtual and augmented reality, you need to first look at how multiplayer gaming has evolved in the past. The first video game consoles were created by Atari and Magnavox (a pioneer in TV). They introduced some great innovations like joysticks, on-screen scoring, and multiplayer competitive games. However, the first true hit came from Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers which was released in 1985. Nintendo realized that players wanted more than single player games.

Imagine a first-person shooter video game: players can join and drop out at any time. The rules will be the same as the other games, but the environment is virtual rather than physical.

Although this idea is still in the early stages of development, there are many exciting possibilities. Imagine playing a multiplayer game on your phone or tablet with your friend who is sitting across from you. The experience would be incredibly immersive.

What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artificial environment that can be experienced through virtual headsets. The computer generated graphics appear to the person who is wearing the headset as if they are actually in that world. So, if you were playing a game where you are on top of a mountain, you would feel like you are really on top of a mountain!

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

AR is the merging of the virtual and real world. It is a technology that projects computer generated images upon a user's perception of reality, thus giving them the ability to alter their physical environment with mere 'clicks' on a screen.

How does VR and AR work in gaming?

Virtual Reality (VR) simulates reality by making it feel like you are actually in the game. Augmented Reality (AR) enhances what you can see and do in the game with virtual elements.

Pros and Cons of gaming in this virtual world

Although virtual reality is able to provide the player with an immersive experience, it doesn't have many of the features that most gamers are used to. It can't provide physical feedback, for example, but it does allow players to explore three-dimensional worlds with a fully tracked body and head movement. On the other hand, augmented reality provides a lot of things that virtual reality can't do because it overlays digital graphics on top of the physical world.

How will AR/VR change the future of gaming?

In a recent article, it was predicted that AR gaming will be the future for video games. The Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive are both VR headsets. They give gamers a more immersive experience by allowing them to enter a new world using virtual reality goggles. As technology advances, it is predicted that even more players will leave their homes and experience games in public locations with AR technology.


The future of this is limitless, but in the meantime I want to share some thoughts on where we will be in five years. Firstly, it is my opinion that AR games will become more popular than VR games because they are more accessible. With that said, I also believe that there's no way to tell which way things are going to go with AR and VR technologies.
