Attendees will learn many tips and solutions that Ubisoft Blue Byte implemented to develop a multiplayer cooperative experience for a mainstream audience and for location based VR venues, from a design to a business perspective.

the design constraints to develop a mainstream cooperative multiplayer VR experience. No prerequisite knowledge needed.
