Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U

Gearbox Software announces a June 27th release date for Penn & Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary, & Underhanded. Word is: "Gearbox is excited to announce that Penn & Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary, & Underhanded will be available on Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, and the HTC VIVE on June 27th, and on PlayStation VR on July 9th!" They also offer an Announce Trailer as well as a clip called How to Fool Your Friends. Both of these revel in the joke that the title represents, as they abbreviate it to "F U, U, U, & U." Here's how they describe this party game:

Gearbox Publishing and Gearbox Software unveiled Penn and Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary & Underhanded (Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U), a comedic social VR experience. Perform over a dozen magic tricks, pranks and simulations that will fool your friends, featuring timeless magicians including Houdini, Cardini, and Penn Jillette himself. The virtual torturous toy box will be available for $19.99 on June 27, 2019 for Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE, and on July 9, 2019 for PlayStation® VR.

"When a new mind-blowing technology comes out, the first thing Teller and I think is, 'How can we use this to help people play tricks, cheat, and prank’,” said Penn Jillette, the larger and louder half of Penn & Teller. “Luckily for us, (and maybe less luckily for the world), Randy Pitchford, the big cheese at Gearbox, is our buddy, and worked as a professional magician. We are the same soulless motherhubbards. So, we’ve found a way for people to use VR as a tool to monkey with their so-called 'friends.' It’s what we do, and we’ve done it.”

Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U isn’t just a bunch of silly magic tricks and pranks (yes, it is), but a guide from your virtual friends, Penn & Teller, to help humiliate your real friends. Demonstrate the healing powers of immersion therapy, test your telekinetic powers, or even guide your soon-to-be-ex friends as they perform The Most Dangerous Act in Showbiz! After learning the secrets behind each trick and prank, you’ll have the tools to fool just about anyone and might even leave them with actual egg on their face.

“In our collaboration, we became animated by advances in the transformative medium of virtual reality and are now excited for fans of magic, pranks, tricks, video games, and VR to be able to experience an entirely new kind of interactive experience,” said Randy Pitchford, President, CEO and Co-founder of Gearbox Software. “With Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U, you’ll have the tools and technology to feel what it’s like to *be* magicians like Penn & Teller.”
