DisplayLink Partners with Croteam to Showcase Serious Sam in Wireless VR at GDC 2018

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DisplayLink®, the leading provider of wireless VR graphics technology, today announced plans to showcase its latest multi-user wireless VR solution at GDC (Game Developers Conference) 2018. DisplayLink has partnered with Croteam™ to showcase Serious Sam™ in a wireless VR play area for single and multiple players. Completely free of cables using DisplayLink XR technology, players enjoy total freedom of movement battling against extraterrestrial monsters coming from all angles.

“VR titles really come to life when you are wireless, and Serious Sam from Croteam™ is incredibly immersive when you engage in 360-degree gameplay without worrying about wrapping a cable around yourself,” said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing at DisplayLink. “DisplayLink is showcasing at GDC for the first time but after announcements with HTC for the new Vive Wireless Adaptor at CES, showcasing multi-user VR (MUVR), and partnering with Intel to present our wireless solution using their 60GHz WiGig antennas at MWC, we’re now excited to be enabling developers to design and build titles that allow complete mobility and freedom of movement.”

“Personally, I just hate pausing to untangle the headset cable when playing a game as hectic as Serious Sam 3 VR, or tripping over the cable while dodging projectiles in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope”, said Mario Kotlar, Gameplay Designer at Croteam. “This is why wireless tech is hugely beneficial to VR gaming and we’re very excited to be showing this with DisplayLink at GDC. Combining DisplayLink XR ultra-low latency wireless technology with Serious Sam VR makes for a truly immersive experience, free from the limitations that cables can impose.”

Come and visit DisplayLink at GDC from March 21st - 23rd at the Moscone Centre, San Francisco, South Hall, booth #1837
