The New Era of Game Development: AR and VR technology

The technological development is unstoppable. In the world of gaming, this is especially true. New trends such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are no longer science fiction. They became reality.

 New trends such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are no longer science fiction.

AR, or Augmented Reality, is capable of connecting digital content with the living, real world. Digital information and images fit into the live environment, which provides an interactive and real-time experience. AR can be used in education, healthcare, architecture and real estate, retail, arts and games. And within games, it offers players plenty of new opportunities to play with their virtual characters in the real world.

VR, or Virtual Reality, completely separates the user from physical reality, placing them in a completely virtual environment. It requires a special headset and possibly associated control devices. VR has a wide range of applications, from education to real estate showings, from gaming to military training.

Both have huge potential in the field of interactive games and are also playing an increasingly important role in e-sports.

These technologies open new paths in game development. The result? The world of esports is also evolving. The skills of esports players must also change in parallel.

AR and VR bring new possibilities. Esports players now need more than just quick reflexes and strategic thinking. New games also require a physical presence. Esports athletes must use every muscle in their body to achieve victory.

VR games also require spatial orientation from esports players. It’s not enough to see it on the monitor, you also have to feel the space. The player must know where he is in the virtual space. It was never important until now. But now it will be crucial.

In the case of AR, players need to hold their own in the real world. The line between reality and play is blurring. Skills such as speed, agility and orientation in real space are important.

Such games will require more brain capacity. Esports players must manage the real world and the virtual world at the same time. It improves brain capacity, memory and multitasking ability.

AR and VR trends are reshaping esports. They bring new skills to players. Players have to adapt to them. But this change is exciting. They meet new challenges and develop new skills.

A new era of technology awaits us. Game development and esports never stop. It always awaits us with new challenges and exciting opportunities. We are excited to see what new skills will become essential for esports players!
