This year’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), taking place in Las Vegas, 18th – 20th May 2018, will host a selection of virtual reality (VR) experiences, courtesy of Survious. The studio’s forthcoming Electronauts will be showcased at the event, with EDC attendees able to experience the VR title at the EDC VR installation in Carnival Square, starting at 8pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Centrally located within the EDC, EDC VR’s showcase of Electronauts, a surreal sonic experience, will feature several acts performing at the event, including 12th Planet, Yellow Claw and Bijou.Electronauts will allow attendees to remix, jam and perform at the Electronauts live stage.
According to Survios, 12th Planet’s song “Let Me Help You (ft. Taylr Renee)” ‘brings his signature sound to the track, enabling synth stabs, dynamic percussion and Taylr Renee’s vocals to be freely manipulated by the person behind the headset and Vive controllers’. Bijou’s bass heavy track “Gotta Shine (ft. Germ),” brings in Germ’s vocals and dictating builds, drops and breaks to mix and layer, while trap fans can delve into the Eastern hip-hop vibes of Krewella/Yellow Claw’s song “New World”.
Created by LA-based Survios, Electronauts is currently in development for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. No release date for Electronauts or Survios’ other forthcoming VR title, Creed: A Rise to Glory, have yet been announced. However, both are currently expected for release in 2018.
We recently went hands-on with Creed: A Rise to Glory, stating in a preview: “Creed: A Rise to Glory may not be promoted as one, but it certainly feels in part like a simulator, with stamina to deal with if players aren’t conservative with their punches. The core experience will centre on the career mode, getting Adonis Creed to the championship as well as playing Exhibition matches.”
Survios has previously found success in VR with Sprint Vector and Raw Data, both available now, as well as a technical demonstration fondly remembered by the earliest adopters in the modern VR community, Zombies on the Holodeck.
