3v3 MULTIPLAYER ACTION AND ROOM SCALE GAMEPLAY IN SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR TO WANDS; ARRIVING FIRST HALF OF 2022

Today we are super happy to announce that we are bringing magic mayhem to Meta Quest 2 with our newest VR game Wands® Alliances! Wands Alliances will take the original high paced magic and wand wielding franchise to the next level with team-based 3v3 gameplay, set in an Victorian era London. 

”We wanted to challenge ourselves to find a room scale gameplay mechanic in a PvP game, whereas most other titles in the genre deliver a more stationary play style. We found the Wands universe to be the right path and we have worked really hard to bring 3v3 magical battles to VR in a completely new package. We’re finally getting ready to launch Wands Alliances in 2022, almost 6 years after Wands in 2016 and I cannot wait to start playing it with the wider VR community.” said Ricky Helgesson, co-founder of Beyond Frames and Head of Design at Cortopia.

Players will need to strategically plan their loadouts and tactically utilize their play space and covers to achieve victory against their opponents.

We will reveal more about the evolution of the Wands franchise in the months leading up to the release.

Reflecting on five years of VR innovation! 

We at Cortopia Studios, the award-winning VR game Wands developer, are celebrating five years of success and driving innovation in the VR games market.

“Today marks five years of pushing the boundaries of VR entertainment for Cortopia,” said Ricky Helgesson, our CEO and co-founder of Beyond Frames and Head of Studio at Cortopia Studios. “Gaming and entertainment continue to drive the growth of virtual reality, and our award-winning mobile VR game, Wands, was just the beginning for us. We are very excited about what’s next for our studio and the industry as a whole.”

Under parent company Beyond Frames, Cortopia Studios has fully dedicated itself to AR and VR gaming and has been since its inception.

In addition to exciting new game announcements in the near future, we continue to push the technical aspect of our top-rated game, Down the Rabbit Hole, into a stunning 120Hz, one of only a handful of VR games to do so and allowing for an unparalleled level of immersion.

To celebrate our 5th anniversary we wanted to share with you some fun facts about us. We hope you like them as we do!

  • Cortopia used to be a part of Univrses, a Computer Vision and Deep Learning company that wanted a demo for their latest tech. The demo turned out to be pretty fun so it was released as a standalone game as Wands for the GearVR on August 18, 2016
  • Our name was NUX for a while but we had to change it since it was already in use by a French company
  • One of the suggested company names was “Hills with legs”, but we ended up to Cortopia
  • Cortopia has two office dogs Bobo (aka. bobocopter) and Purjolöksson (aka. Purjo, Purjonn, Pelegrino, räkan, fröken lök, posthövet)
