To continue the celebrations of BattleTech‘s 25th anniversary and the 20th year of BattleTech VR attractions, MechJock.Com is taking its BattleTech: Firestorm Virutal World (Tesla II) pods to Gen Con Indy in Indianapolis, Indiana Aug 13th through the 16th.

The Tesla II cockpits, featuring the BattleTech: Firestorm software, are fully enclosed military style simulators that feature 7 screens, over 90 control systems, and a 12 speaker surround sound system. When seated in the cockpit or ‘pod’, the player will pilot his or her own walking tank known as a BattleMech onto the virtual landscape to compete for battlefield superiority with those seated in surrounding cockpits.


This is the 3rd major convention appearance for the Kalamazoo operation this season, following successful deployments at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio and Anime Central in Chicago, IL.

Another set of BattleTech: Firestorm Virtual World (Tesla II) pods owned by an independent operator (Houston-based MechCorps Entertainment, LLC.) is scheduled to return to MechaCon V in Lafayette, LA July 24th through the 26th as well as other unannounced events.

Headquartered in Kalamazoo, Virtual World Entertainment is a leading supplier of high-end, centerpiece attractions to the location-based entertainment industry. Virtual World has produced and distributed cockpits since 1989.
