New Augmented Reality sports game to be released to the public
ePlay is working with Horry and a championship youth basketball team now called Big Shot. The team is wearing the Big Shot game logo on their jersey and warm-up gear to help promote the Big Shot mobile game. Big Shot is a series of sports and entertainment games that feature AR, fantasy sports, esports streaming, selfies, 3D, and other advanced mobile game features. The game is most simply described as Pokémon Go for sports.
The first game in the Big Shot series is based on the NBA, followed by others sports titles for the NFL, NHL, soccer, and MLB. Entertainment AR titles with actors and influencers are also in the works.
CEO of ePlay Digital, Trevor Doerksen said that they have received great feedback with their beta testing of Big Shot and the team looked great wearing the app logo. Now they are ready to launch version 1 of the app as game players are preparing for the upcoming NBA season.
