Harena Data And Phenomena Announce New, Competitive VR Esports Leagues

Phenomena VR and Harena Data, the world’s largest community esports aggregator, announced at the IAPPA Expo that they are leaguifying competitive VR esports across North America. Phenomena VR will use its state-of-the-art technology to bring the VR Esport Arena, the first-ever free roam VR arena, to the professional competitive level. The VR Esport Arena creates a fully immersive experience, allowing the players to move around an open space without the need for a cable management system or supported backpack. The tournaments and competitions will be leaguified and managed by Harena Data.

“We are excited about this partnership with Harena Data,” said Awane Jones, CEO of Phenomena. “Phenomena have spent the last 2 years in R&D to optimize the VR Esport Arena taking it from 250m sq. ft. all the way to 10,000 sq. ft. with the help of hardware partner HTC. With more than 100 arenas worldwide, we can’t wait to keep expanding our games to a professional competitive audience with Harena Data and to start broadcasting VR esport content in the near future. The best is yet to come.”

What also makes Phenomena VR’s arenas particularly unique is their ability to scale the size of the arenas themselves. Arenas, like in-game maps, are customizable in size and layout, making for a new experience in every game.

The VR esports tournaments will kick off with three games and soon expand to multiple titles. Those initial three games include:

  • Versus: Virtual Reality Laser Tag – An arena scale VR laser tag game with a roster of different game modes, varied map sizes, and engaging gameplay.
  • Enter the Duat – A co-op shooter tasking teams to combat enemy hordes and monsters from the Egyptian underworld. Players are fully immersed into in-game roles that allow them to practice ranged skills and various magical abilities that come to life.
  • Space Dance Harmony – A VR dance rhythm title that allows gamers to shine on the dance floor.
