Ubisoft has introduced a tie-in with haptics agency Owo for the upcoming Murderer’s Creed Mirage, so now you possibly can pay round $500 for a Mirage-themed model of the Owo Pores and skin go well with. This haptic high seems to be kinda like a padded t-shirt, operates wirelessly, and permits the consumer to really feel sensations on 10 areas of the higher physique and arms.

In case you’re questioning where the identify comes from, it is fairly easy: “Owo” is the sound somebody makes as they realise their haptic go well with is about to vaporise them. 

“Now, you’ll not impersonate Basim,” booms the press launch, however “you may be Basim!” That is somewhat a backhand to all of us impersonators taking part in the game usually. The Murderer’s Creed: Mirage Particular Version features a digital copy of the game and guarantees “unique sensations by no means felt earlier than”, which seems like one thing a demon would say earlier than kicking off the torture.

Owo lists a variety of sensations that the go well with can simulate together with “axe” and the worrying sounding “extreme belly wound”. It additionally does getting shot, getting shot with an exit wound, and getting stabbed within the chest.

The Murderer’s Creed vest additionally comes with this ominous warning: “Do not let your enemies get too shut or you’ll really feel the results.” I imply, Ubisoft, come on, we’re all getting on a bit right here. Is there any world by which I wish to really feel the affect of an enemy punching me in a game? It’s arduous to think about something worse.

Anyway, if you cannot wait to have your bodily kind encased with a software-controlled exosuit that simulates bodily affect you possibly can regulate the Owo web site. I imply, what might go flawed. Amusingly sufficient the businesses concerned cannot cease calling this factor unique, and I’ve to agree. Getting the shit kicked out of you by a go well with sounds fairly unique to me.
