Launching on Core this Fall, Oberhasli Features an Evolving Social Space and Virtual Music Experience Directed by deadmau5, Where Fans Can Hang Out, Attend Concerts and Engage with the Artist.
During Gamescom’s Opening Night Live hosted by Geoff Keighley, world renowned electronic artist deadmau5 announced that he is developing Oberhasli, a new virtual world and music experience, exclusively on Core, the premier platform for user-created multiplayer games and virtual worlds.
Designed as an interactive space in the multiverse where fans can meet up virtually, Oberhasli will feature a constantly evolving online world with music, games, and other interactive content curated by deadmau5 himself. Fans will be able to socialize with each other, play games, listen to live music performances and much more when Oberhasli debuts on Core October 14 with an exclusive live music performance featuring deadmau5 and friends.
“Creating a world like Oberhasli has been a vision of mine for years now, but I quickly discovered how daunting it can be to create a multiplayer experience as a solo developer,” said Joel Zimmerman who is deadmau5. “The amazing thing about Core is that anyone can jump in and create content regardless of experience or resources. We’ve seen virtual concerts in the past, but after making a splash, they fizzle out; there’s no shelf life to them. With Oberhasli, I want to create a permanent mainstay for the artists’ metaverse, regularly updating it over time, switching things up and keeping it cohesive with real-world news and ancillary events.”
While famous musicians, including deadmau5, have previously appeared in pre-recorded, one-off online performances, Oberhasli is a radical leap forward in the pursuit of a true entertainment metaverse. Oberhasli will deliver an ever-evolving online deadmau5 world featuring concerts, social experiences, videos, exclusive music, games, and a lot more. Oberhasli is intended to be a place to visit again and again, with fresh music, games, and content, all curated by deadmau5 himself.
This is the second time deadmau5 has collaborated with the talented community of creators on Core. Earlier this summer, Core creators were asked to contribute their best dystopian worlds, which are being incorporated into the new music video for deadmau5’ single “When The Summer Dies” with musician, singer and songwriter, Lights.
“We’re so happy to be working with deadmau5 again to bring this truly innovative vision of his to life,” said Frederic Descamps, CEO and co-founder, Manticore Games. “We think the Metaverse will be built by thousands of creators, game makers, and artists who can share unique interactive experiences with their audience and generate income from their work. Oberhasli isn’t a sponsored marketing stunt – it’s a persistent home for all things deadmau5 inside of Core.”
More details about Oberhasli will be revealed soon, so stay tuned to twitter.com/coregames for more updates as we bring this amazing world to life. Core is available for free on the Epic Games Store at https://www.epicgames.com/store/p/core.
