The Other Worlds virtual reality (VR) arcade is set to come to London in June for a special event will be held at a secret East London location where gamers will be able to experience VR titles and sip cocktails.
During the day, the chosen venue will have events for younger gamers and a selection of ice cream and retro cereal will be available. Then from 4pm until midnight the bar opens serving interesting cocktails, a special guest DJ will start up a set and the party will begin.
Eight HTC Vive VR rigs will be set up, along with a large TV screen for spectators to watch the action occurring within the VR world. Not only VR rigs but also retro arcade games will be available along with games consoles for those who want a more nostalgic experience. Visitors will be able to sample street food as they watch fellow patrons play games.
Organisers Other Worlds are planning on bringing the pop-up arcade to other cities in the UK, including Birmingham, Cardiff and Manchester. Dates for those have not yet been set, however.
Tickets for the London Other Worlds arcade go on sale on Friday 7th April. The event itself will take place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June 2017. Further information will be available on the website. Exactly where in East London the event will take place is still not known, but will likely be revealed to those who purchase tickets once they go on sale.
A trailer for the VR arcade can be seen below. VRFocus will continue to report on new VR facilities and experiences.
