Like zombies? The world’s first free-roam, multiplayer VR game will land in Nottingham, as warehouses will crop up across the UK owned by ZERO LATENCY.
The company, which specialises in warehouse-scale VR experiences, brings battling zombies in a survival game which I can imagine will lead to banter and a decent dose of fun. This will go alongside other experiences like shooting aliens in space. The experiences range from 15 to 30 minutes per session. (I just hope they clean the sweaty headsets afterwards).
FIght zombies in VR
The games available include (and taken from the release):
- Zombie Survival – Picture this: you’re bunkered in a fort and surrounded by a mass of zombies. An experience for thrill seekers.
- Outbreak Origins – Prepare yourself for epic battles. A deadly virus is wreaking havoc, causing hordes of zombies to take over the city. The dead are walking and your squad needs to do something quick!
- Singularity – Ever wondered how you’d fair against killer robots and rogue drones? You and your mates will investigate a secret military space station and take on the Terminators.
- Engineerium – Perfect for first-timers and virtual reality experimenters. Ease you and your mates into VR through this avatar-like, fantasy world that combines platform and maze challenges.
John Lilley, Chief Experience Officer at Zero Latency said: “It’s long been our ambition to launch Zero Latency in the top tech hub of Europe and we can’t wait to share with Brits the UK’s first free-roam, multiplayer VR entertainment experience. That said, there’s a growing appetite for cutting-edge socially engaging VR experiences and the games we offer cater to a wide audience from avid-gamers to first time visitors, but at the heart of every game is a family fun adventure. We look forward to opening the doors of our first UK arena in Nottingham, and can’t wait to watch players battle against zombies and sacrifice their friends so that they can win!”
ZERO LATENCY will launch their first site in the UK on Friday 19th October 2018 in Nottingham. Neat.
