Core Coinz to offer key cross-marketing and in-game incentives.
ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY) today demonstrated its upcoming Augmented Reality (AR) sports game to a group of investors and the media. The company also announced the name for its upcoming game series. Big Shot AR will be a series of sports games that feature AR, fantasy sports, esports streaming, selfies, and other advanced mobile game features. The game is best described as Pokémon Go for sports.
In addition, the company announced that the ePlay game publisher website, Big Shot AR game website, and game marketing program, known as Core Coinz, are available now, or launching in coming days, to help support the upcoming launch of Big Shot AR. The launch date for the game will be announced next month.
“Walking around the office or the neighbourhood with kids finding virtual reality athletes in the real world, taking augmented reality selfies, and then creating a fantasy team like nobody has ever seen before is really exciting,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital. “There are few games that can rival Pokémon Go and we hope to be able to replicate some of that magic.”
ePlay has leveraged the Mobovivo Augmented Reality Game Engine to create Big Shot AR. The Big Shot AR games series is expected to generate new ePlay revenue upon launch. Big Shot AR will generate revenue through mobile advertising and in-app purchases such as level-ups, digital sneakers, custom jerseys, and advanced features.
The first game in the Big Shot AR series is based on NBA, followed by others sports titles for NFL, NHL, soccer, and MLB. Entertainment AR titles with actors and influencers are also in the works.
