PokerStars VR, the virtual reality arm of the world’s biggest poker site, has announced that it’s brand-new, immersive experience Spies goes live on November 28.
In PokerStars VR’s most intense challenge yet, the series of spy-themed virtual reality content will see poker players face-off in a super villain’s lair located inside an active volcano at the summit of a snow-capped mountain, with plenty of apparel, props, and gadgets to match. Players can interact with good and evil-themed items including exploding bubble gum, shoulder-mounted weaponry, and laser lipstick, all while trying to unravel the secrets of the lair itself.
“There are no limits to what we can do at PokerStars VR. It’s been a very exciting first year. Players have gone head-to-head in a wild-west saloon, a Monte-Carlo yacht, a futuristic Macau and now they can live their poker dream as a spy or super-villain, with jet-pack monkeys thrown in for good measure.”Severin Rasset, Managing Director and Commercial Officer, Poker

Winners will be awarded the world’s first PokerStars VRPT bracelet for their virtual reality avatar and points for the player of the year leader board.
