The world’s first free-roaming, multiplayer VR entertainment experience is set to captivate Brits, as revolutionary social VR gaming company Zero Latency, launches the UK’s first site on Friday 19th October in Nottingham.
The deeply immersive 15 or 30-minute social VR experiences brings socialising with friends to a new dimension; battling zombies in a survival game, intergalactic firefights in space and solving puzzles in fantastical alien worlds.
Players enter the arena equipped with headsets, headphones, military-styled backpacks and a gun (for shooter games) to navigate their full-motion avatars through the Ready Player One-like worlds. Senses are heightened as gamers manoeuvre through the hyper-realistic virtually generated world, all while set in a 180-sq metre e-sports arena.
Pioneers and global leaders in warehouse scale and multiplayer reality gaming, Zero Latency are revitalising social gaming by offering visitors next generational group entertainment, enhanced with world leading free-roam VR. Unlike other VR experiences, where you play solo in a confined area whilst tethered to a computer or cords, players can freely roam the arena, explore and fight together.
Perfect for first time gamers and thrill-seekers alike, games feature advanced storytelling, ultra-realistic enemies and epic final boss battles. Games become ultra-competitive as groups are ranked against one another based on their skillset; number of kills and deaths.
Nottingham will host Zero Latency’s full game product offering over the coming months to suit different tastes, including:
- Zombie Survival – Picture this: you’re bunkered in a fort and surrounded by a mass of zombies. Can you stay alive until the rescue team arrives? 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.
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!”
