Star Wars is one of the biggest franchises in the world, boasting a huge, enthusiastic fanbase. Those fans will soon have a chance to become part of the battles in a galaxy far, far away as tickets for immersive virtual reality (VR) experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire go on sale for its Las Vegas opening.
Created by VR content studio The VOID, who previously worked on a VR Ghostbusters experience, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will allow fans to interact with the Star Wars universe, to see, touch and interact with familiar locations for the movies.
The experience is planned to open at the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas on Friday 27th April, 2018, and will allow guests to become part of the rebellion, infiltrating an Imperial base in order to steal valuable intelligence data.
Cliff Plumer, chief executive officer at The VOID said, “Las Vegas is the experience capital of the world, and we are excited to bring a brand new, fully immersive location based experience to the local market and out of town visitors. The power of The VOID will allow guests to step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and not only see this spectacular world, but also hear, feel, touch and even smell as they realize they are a part of this incredible story.”
Vicki Dobbs Beck, Executive in Charge at ILMxLAB said, “Storytelling has always been the centerpiece of the Lucasfilm companies. While creativity leads, technology enables and our collaboration with The VOID is no exception. With Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire we are telling a new kind of story in a galaxy far, far away and we’re excited that people in Las Vegas can now share in this immersive adventure.”
Pre-sale tickets for the experience are already available through The VOID website. Further information on Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and other upcoming VR experiences will be right here on VRFocus.
