Laser Tag Games Are Thrilling In Any Language

Laser Tag Sound Effects Enhance Game Immersion

Support for up to 24 Language Sound Effects

The SATR3 laser tag system has more than 18,000+ sound effects/voice-overs.

Immerse Your Players With Local Language Sound Effects

The ability to have the laser tag equipment interact with gamers in their local language is vital to an operator's success. Not only does the SATR laser tag system issue sound effects in more than 20 language schemes, including the world's most widely spoken languages, but it also offers four variations on English (with different accents and semantics) and a language-free "arcade" sound scheme. In addition, the voice-over sound effects can be customized at point of manufacture.

One of the key tenets in SATR's patented technology is its real-time hit-feedback. An operator can select various sound schemes for this feedback. Plus the laser tag system offers useful game management voice-overs. These voice sound effects are issues directly from a player's laser tag gun as well as the battlefield props so all gamers can hear them.

Voice Coach - In-Game Prompts

The SATR live-action gaming system includes voice coach sound effects consistent with the gaming theme. 

In the family friendly "Battlefield TAG" theme, sound effects include:

  • "Tagged!" when you've hit your opposition 
  • "You're Tagged" when an opponent has hit your sensors
  • "Deactivated" when you've taken your opponent's last hit point
  • "You're Deactivated" when your hit points are down to zero
  • "De-activated Already" when you try & shoot a player who already has zero hit points
  • "You're Deactivated. Return to Base" when you try and pull the trigger and you have zero hit points.

Retro Arcade Soundscape Creates a More Engaging Gaming Experience

The "Arcade" sound scheme is an innovation in laser tag SFX. The Arcade sound scheme plays musical sound effects instead of spoken words and therefore is language-free. In other words, it is independent of a specific language so it can be used anywhere in the world. The Arcade sound scheme has sound effects consistent with classic fast-action arcade games. Remember Pinball sounds? The emphasis of the Arcade sound scheme is on the fun.

Ideal for Family Entertainment Centers, Tourist Resorts, and Summer Camp our laser tag system has a soundscape called 'Arcade'. Rather than the standard word cues for gameplay actions, the new Arcade SFX offers a set of intuitive sonic elements just like sounds from a retro pinball parlor.

"We are really excited by the launch of SATR, particularly the new Arcade sound scheme which we believe is set to be the game-changing innovation in live gaming this year,” said Nicole Lander, Co-Founder of Battlefield Sports.

“We believe our customers will love the new software update as it brings a new and exciting dimension to laser games for live-action role-play fans worldwide,” said Nicole.

“This is just the first in a number of exciting innovations that we plan to introduce over the short term which will distinguish the Battlefield Sports brand from its competitors,” said Nicole.

The Sound of Winning

The new SATR arcade sound scheme seeks to reinforce the sensation of winning for the gamer.

Gamers get pleasure from being reassured that they are winning. Gamers on the same team even get a vicarious pleasure when they hear their teammates making progress.

The new Arcade sound scheme makes sound effects consistent with traditional arcade games for hits and kills, and re-spawns, dead already, and the game starts. The hit/kill sounds have a very short duration.     

In fact, this reinforcement is one of the key drivers in Battlefield Sports' breakthrough patented technology. The SATR system ensured that via peer-to-peer system gamers KNOW when they get their opponents.

In the classic system players of outdoor laser tag often knew when they were hit but not when they tagged their opponent. It was a negative reinforcement scenario.

With the real-time hit-feedback of SATR gamers now have a positive reinforcement of success within the game.

The digital sound scheme in the SATR laser tag system has always been integral to the gaming experience.

Previous SATR software versions offered gamers this hit feedback via a sound effect such as "tagged" or "hit" in 13 different languages.

SATR2.2 now offers Battlefield Operators a meta-language option, a sound scheme similar to a retro arcade.

Sound effects instead of the spoken word are better for players who don’t understand the language that the Battlefield Operator has set as standard on his or her gaming guns.

The new sonic elements are quickly interpreted across many cultures. This is perfect for running events where there are many gamers with different language backgrounds, such as entertaining tourists at a resort or entertaining student groups from overseas.

Carnival games, casinos, game shows, and video games have employed sounds to heighten engagement and pleasure.

Sounds in games and during the game-play are integral to the gamers' perception and understanding of fun as the mission and battlefield props themselves.

Research has shown that multiple‐sensory stimuli can trigger adrenaline and dopamine.

A balance between difficulty and skill is required to continually engage a gamer in the combat game. As Nolan Bushnell, Founder of Atari, famously said the best games are easy to learn but difficult to master.

As the gamer's skill increases, so must the difficulty of his or her mission, or the player will become bored. But if the skill required is too difficult for a novice, the gamer will likely become despondent. So it is important to get the game balance right.

Battlefield Sports places immense focus on innovation as core to its strategy when developing live gaming technology.

The SATR sound effects are an integral component of the gaming experience which helps create a more immersive entertainment, a more convincing illusion of the battlefield. It heightens the amount of stimulation, engages the senses, and consequently improves the quality of the gaming experience.

"Battlefield TAG" aka Laser Tag English Sound Scheme

Likewise, the "Laser Tag English" sound scheme is for those operators who need something more family-friendly than the other sound schemes in SATR. Instead of SFX like "Casualty" and "Kill confirmed" the unit issues SFX like "tagged" and "de-activated". This change in semantics is important, depending on your customer's cultural background.

High-Quality Sound Reproduction

All sound files are in 22050hz 16 bits, Mono Wav format.
