Beat Saber Cup: Singapore’s Largest Virtual Reality Gaming Tournament Hits CapitaLand Malls This March
Got rhythm? You might just be able to use that skill and score yourself S$35,000 in STAR$® and prizes at CapitaLand’s first ever Virtual Reality Gaming Tournament!
At the Beat Saber Cup, shoppers are set to slash, swipe and duck their way to victory as they channel their inner intergalactic warrior as they engage in a little Beat Saber, a brand new VR rhythm game prior to its regional launch on the Playstation 4 across various CapitaLand Malls. Says Ms Teresa Teow, Head of Retail Management, Singapore, CapitaLand Retail: “CapitaLand malls have long been an integral part of the communities, serving as popular retail and lifestyle destinations. As virtual reality and competitive gaming take off among consumers, we aim to be among the first to bring these elements into our malls and create an immersive and memorable play experience for our shoppers. The ‘CapitaLand Malls Beat Saber Cup 2019’ is a unique large scale virtual reality gaming platform that has taken our team months of planning to come to fruition. We look forward to having gaming enthusiasts among our shoppers turn up in full force with their families and friends to take part in this novel initiative, have fun while playing and enjoy great camaraderie in the process!”
The game itself is an amalgamation of elements from Tap Tap Revenge, Dance Dance Revolution, and Fruit Ninja. The exciting rhythm game comes complete with an immersive experience via sound and visual effects. All you have to do is swipe and slash at the beats as they come, with the correct coloured saber in the direction of the arrow and chalk up the combos. Shoppers can take part in preliminaries across various malls before the semifinals and finals, the latter to be held simultaneously at Plaza Singapura and Clarke Quay on 31st March. The grand champion takes home the inaugural CapitaLand Malls Beat Saber Cup 2019 trophy and five million STAR$® (equivalent to S$5,000), while top scorers of the day per mall will win a Razer headset worth up to S$309.90 (limited to one headset per winner) during the qualifying rounds.
Get slashing, get your beat on, and head on down to a participating CapitaLand Mall this March to Beat Saber!
