    Today via the Official Ubisoft Blog, the company have announced plans to build a "next-generation" theme park in Malaysia.
    Slated to open in 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the park will be a 10,000-square-meter indoor complex featuring rides, shows and other attractions, all built around Ubisoft’s games and characters:
    Few specifics have been revealed about upcoming attractions, but “Ubisoft will produce all digital media for the rides, and help design guests’ journey into the park to ensure the visitors’ experience is at its best,” says Rivières.

    So many deaths do to so many glitches... speaking of disaster, what every happened with NVIDIA building self driving cars and yet they can't build a 4GB 970 Video card with out screwing people?7

    Won't go near that place until they fix all the games and rides that had problems at launch, er, at the opening.... about 6-7 months later.

    This is so cool! I went to KL earlier this summer and loved it, I always told myself I'd come back.

    ... all of the rides have a max speed of 30mph, because that feels more cinematic. Additionally, they slow down below 20mph every few seconds.

    Aaaaaand you need to be a registered Uplay member to even visit the park, that's for sure.

    Surprised nobody has said cinematic 30 FPS.

    Aside from all the Ubisoft jokes, I'm curious how some of the attractions will be handled besides the generic things (e.g. roller coasters).

    Hmm. In all seriousness, this could actually turn out to be pretty fun.
    I may even get the chance to go there sometime, seeing as my dad lives in Singapore and I visit him about once a year. He has been talking about taking a trip to Malaysia while I'm there, which will probably happen sooner than 2020 but I'm sure we'll do it again sometime.

    The Next generation part makes me think this will have an emphasis on digital stuff, VR and interactive rides maybe? I know real rollercoasters enhanced with a VR helmet and selectable virtual rides are developed and tested.

    Um... KL is perfect AS IS! We don't need any disasters to ruin it... like faulty exploding amusement park rides

    Do what everyone else does and build it in the middle of nowhere, not the middle of KL

    I think it's going to be indoors only too so it might not even have any rollercoasters etc.

    We will probably have to climb a watch tower for the area map.
