5G in VR Games
The niche “Virtual Reality” genre that stimulates interactive computer-generated experience that takes place within a simulated environment will become the mainstream genre that the science fiction fans have ever dreamed of.
“The 5G network will became the literal game changer. [It’s even] capable of creating ‘the new world'”, said Vice President of NetEase Group, Hu Ziheng, on Huawei Day Forum in Barcelona, Sunday (24/2/2019).
“The increased bandwidth will incite a new era of digital gaming, Game Producers will prefer cloud gaming in the future than physical disc. And so Virtual Reality games will become even more remarkable than before,” he added.
Allegedly, the 5G network enables high-speed streaming on cloud gaming possible. The player doesn’t need to sell out additional cash to buy or create custom console with cutting-edge specifications to enjoy the best performance and immersion a game can offer.
“The cloud will handle all the heavy work. Thus eliminating the cost to develop or purchasing consoles and so the affordable yet superior Virtual Reality Console will rise,” Hu explained.
While the development of 5G is still on borderline to completion, VR Games developers are also on the race to prepare their games for the upcoming console evolution.
“There’s a big possibility that in the future the sole means of purchasing game will be online store playable by streaming via integrated cloud. Even the developer and publisher can cut on the cost of a game production and rights for gaming consoles and handhelds.”
“Based on my predictions, the seamless Virtual Reality experience that blurred the line between Virtual and Reality will be able to dominate the market in near future.” Hu Ziheng concluded.
