Virtual Reality allows an amazing level of immersion in virtual worlds. But when it comes to locomotion, the ability to travel into these worlds may involve various degrees of discomfort, from fatigue to kinetosis (motion sickness). In Assassin's Creed Nexus VR, the open worlds of the game provide great opportunities for players to explore, parkour, climb, fight or go stealth, all of which presented unique challenges when designing a comfortable and accessible experience.

The team presents the journey and share our experience working for several years on designing and building various features and presets to make the game comfortable and accessible for players.
