Wargaming.net and Full Sail University Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Join Full Sail University on January 26, 2015 for the unveiling and tour of the new on-campus Full Sail User Experience Lab. With the support of Wargaming.net, Full Sail University takes its place at the forefront of helping video game companies analytically and scientifically understand the elements and motivation behind player behavior. This facility will bring state-of-the-art UX testing to over 5,000 play testers annually, including both internal and external members of the community. The Full Sail User Experience Lab will also address and execute 100+ research projects per year for companies from multiple industries, as well as provide a project-based teaching environment.

Wargaming.net is supporting the technology contained within the 3,000-square-foot lab space housed on the Full Sail campus. The lab will feature play test stations for both PC and Xbox consoles, a control center dedicated to metrics tracking and video feed analysis and observation. Additionally, the lab will contain a full physiology suite with all of the tools needed for physiological assessments like electrical heart, muscle and neuron activity in players.
