Attendees to sample the “premier VR experience”
Gamer Network, the team behind the UK’s biggest games events, together with HTC, global innovator in smart mobile devices and technology and visual computing pioneers NVIDIA, are excited to reveal that Vive, the first-of-its-kind virtual reality system, will be available to sample at EGX Rezzed 2016.
Described by Digital Foundry as the “premier VR experience” and fresh from a hugely successful UK public debut at EGX 2015 where it wowed attendees, Vive comes to EGX Rezzed with five thrilling games, powered by GeForce GTX PCs:
Arizona Sunshine is a post-apocalyptic FPS built and optimised for room-scale virtual reality. Players must bash, slash and explode their way through hordes of zombies close enough to touch.
Fantastic Contraption has been designed from the ground up for room-scale VR. Players can walk around a beautifully realised grassy island in the sky, building huge machines with their own hands and watching them come to life.
Tilt Brush lets players paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.
Job Simulator already has numerous award nominations to its name and was described by Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Graham Smith as “the best game I played” [on Vive]. In a world where robots have replaced all human jobs, Job Simulator teaches players what it was like ‘to job’.
TheBluVR is an immersive underwater shipwreck experience. Experience the awe, wonder, and majesty of the ocean through numerous encounters including coming face-to-face with an 80-foot blue whale.
“Virtual reality will transform the way we interact with the world and we’re delighted that Rezzed attendees will be able to try out the latest Vive content.” said Jon Goddard, head of Vive Marketing, EMEA.
“Virtual reality is an incredible advance for gamers, providing full immersion in whole new worlds. The best VR experience demands enormous computing power – and the best way to get that is with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX GPUs,” said Jaap Zuiderveld, VP EMEAI, NVIDIA.
A booking system will be in place for EGX Rezzed attendees to experience Vive. Visitors who would like to sample this ground-breaking virtual reality system should head to the NVIDIA and HTC Booth on the day to book their slot.
