Tuan Azmi Abdullah, Director for Central Region Tourism Malaysia officiated the launch of Bomb Battle, a multiplayer real-life video game experience. Created by Mission Group Ltd, concept and game creator, Bomb Battle is the first of its kind in Asia featuring five fully immersive arcade games that blend inspirations from action movies, game shows, escape games and esports, creating an unparalleled gaming experience.
The concept was pioneered by entrepreneur Datin Sheehan Tee and co-founder Mr Tai Lee Chuen and promised to be one of the most innovative and exhilarating entertainment rooms in the country. Sheehan’s impressive portfolio includes serving as the Chief Operating Officer of Escape Room and The Rift, Malaysia’s first and largest virtual and augmented reality theme park, as well as founding MyBestBox, an indoor amusement park inspired by the famous Korean Running Man and Wipeout variety shows.
According to Azmi Abdullah, Bomb Battle is a wonderful addition to the nation’s tourism industry. He said, “YAB Prime Minister, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim has announced during the budget which was tabled recently that the next Visit Malaysia Year will be held in 2025. That’s about 1.5 years from now. Therefore, the timing of the opening of Bomb Battle is absolutely ideal and it is a great addition to the country’s tourism product.”
Designed as the ultimate group entertainment destination, this high-tech game challenges players to put their skills to the test by defusing a ticking paint bomb within 75 minutes. Failing to do so results in a vibrant explosion of colors as players get drenched in paint, providing an adrenaline rush that is unmatched in Malaysia’s local entertainment scene.
Datin Sheehan Tee, founder of Mission Group Ltd said, “We are thrilled to introduce Bomb Battle’s one-of-a-kind game experience to the Malaysian community. It is that perfect blend of excitement, intellect and skill, so you can spend quality time with family and friends. The game features five unique rooms, each with three difficulty levels, catering to players of all skill levels. We designed it to ensure that players are fully immersed in a real-life arcade game, creating an electrifying experience that they will never forget.”
To elevate the player’s experience to the next level, Bomb Battle has partnered with GoPro, the trailblazing global leader in action cameras, as their Official Camera Partner. Using GoPro’s, players can effortlessly capture and record their gameplay, bringing life-like content home and sharing it with the world. On top of that, the company has partnered with Klook Malaysia as their official online travel agent to provide exclusive online ticketing services to their users, in addition to Hausboom as their official beverage partner.
Not only does the game promise an exciting experience, but it also ensures the safety of all players by providing full-body hazmat suits and protective gear. The Bomb Battle experience is equipped with the company’s advanced touch screen, IoT system, and laser maze hardware, which provides a unique way to experience the intersection of technology and human social connection.
The official tickets for Bomb Battle will be available for purchase through their website as well as on Klook Malaysia. Malaysians can choose between two thrilling missions, the Bomb Mission or VIP Mission, with prices starting at RM89 per person.
