Consumers Now Can Escape Their Quarantine Realities & Make New Year’s Eve Plans, As Loop Media & Ultimate Gamer Usher in the New Year With An Innovative New “Virtual New Year’s Eve” Immersive Experience
Glendale, CA - (NewMediaWire) - December 31, 2020 - Loop Media, Inc. (“Loop Media”), the first media company that gives consumers and businesses fully-integrated 360-degree and other premium short-form content experiences (OTC: LPTV), rings in the new year tonight with Virtual New Year’s Eve (VNYE) in collaboration with Ultimate Gamer, the world's first and only multi-genre esports proving ground.
Times Square will be empty this New Year’s Eve for the first time since the ceremony’s inception in 1907 due to rising COVID-19 infection rate concerns. Jamestown—the real-estate investment and management company that owns One Times Square—has planned a New Year’s Eve celebration blending virtual and augmented experiences with live camera feeds, which is totally free. Users can download the “VNYE” app or sign in to VNYE.com.
VNYE invites users to create a custom avatar to explore new and exciting virtual reality environments and games, including a virtual Times Square. In this virtual environment, Times Square’s billboards will be replaced with digital artworks from over 46 artists, including Shyama Golden and Jeanette Getrost. Users will also enjoy virtual concerts from performers Chloe Gilligan, Alex Boye, and Armani White. At midnight, users can watch the Virtual Ball drop to usher in the New Year.
As an exclusive gaming partner, Ultimate Gamer will provide unique virtual experiences, interactive content, and streams geared toward gamers and esports fans through the VNYE app and website. Ultimate Gamer’s VNYE experience will also include the world’s largest and most current music video library, courtesy of Loop Media.
