Paris’ mk2 Bibliothèque Aims to Bring Virtual Reality to the Masses with mk2 VR!
VR is a train that has been picking up speed for some time. With the arrival of devices such as the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, the PlayStation VR, and a growing number of others, it remains unclear as to whether virtual reality is here for the long haul, or just a momentary trend in all of time and space. One place that looks forward to VR’s permanence is Paris’ mk2 Bibliothèque. As France’s third largest movie theater, mk2 Bibliothèque sees around two million movie-goers every year, and this high volume of traffic can bring a lot of business to their new endeavor, mk2 VR
Bolstering a whopping 12 VR pods for players to enjoy, mk2 VR is surely going to be a hit for years to come. That is, if VR is truly here to stay. The HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and Birdly are all devices which you can check out while at mk2. A 20 minute session is going to run you €12, while a 40 minute session is going to cost you €20. With each VR title ranging from 3 to 10 minutes, you’ll be able to fit a ton of fun into a 40 minute session. Speaking of titles, the list of VR experiences available at mk2 VR is as follows:
- Assassin’s Creed Experience VR by Twentieth Century Fox
- The Walk by smartVR Studio
- Homebound Joyride by Quixel
- Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One X-Wing VR Mission by Electronic Arts
- Ocean Descent by Sony London Studio

Paris’ mk2 VR is open for business if you happen to be in the area and your VR needs are not being met elsewhere. If you are a developer of VR content, you can submit your ideas to mk2 and have the potential to be featured in their facility. Also, if you are a business, or run a small team of sorts, you can even set up sessions for training or team building exercises. Did someone just say DFTG is going to Paris?! Probably just my imagination. In any case, this place seems like an absolute blast and we can only hope similar facilities begin popping up all across the globe!
