Project Arena is a virtual reality sport designed by CCP Games. It looks incredible, like a round of Pong played in a stylized virtual reality world (ever seen Tron?).
Some lucky writers at games publication Polygon gave it a spin:
“We tried two game modes, one of which allowed you to use your wrist-mounted shield to knock a virtual disc back and forth as it arced around a red net with a narrow yellow ring. If you hit the net, you lost a point. If you hit the ring, the disc sped up as it approached your opponent. If you hit your opponent, you gain a point. The second game mode also gave you a shield along with the ability to shift that shield into a disc to fling at your opponent while deflecting their attacks.”
If that’s hard for you to visualize, have no fear—there’s a demo video, too.
