In a few days time the biggest videogame event on the calendar, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2018 opens its doors to industry and public alike in Los Angeles. Heading all the way over to California just isn’t always financially viable for some developers, especially smaller indie teams. So the Realities Centre, a London, UK hub for all things virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) related is holding a post E3 event to showcase some of the products and content revealed during the event.
For the ‘Post E3 #XR Review’, Realities Centre will feature a line-up of hands-on demonstrations for guests to try, these include the recently announced Arca’s Path from Dream Reality Interactive and Rebellion; to be playable in the UK for the first time, as well as Cherry Pop Games’ popular Football Nation VR.
“E3 is one of the most exciting events in the yearly calendar for interactive entertainment so the opportunity to showcase the best of the UK’s talents could not be missed,” said Thomas Gere, Realities Centre CEO in a statement. “Partnering with VRFocus has afforded us the opportunity to get an insight into the show floor from halfway across the world and bring in the people responsible for some of the biggest announcements of the event.”
“The UK XR community is hugely passionate, and the Realities Centre is keen to enable everyone access to all the latest developments whether or not they have the budget to attend international trade shows.”
In addition to demos the ‘Post E3 #XR Review’ event will offer a number of speaker sessions and a panel discussing all the latest XR news lead by VRFocus’ own Kevin Joyce and Nina Salomons.
The Realities Centre ‘Post E3 #XR Review’ will take place on 20th June, in White City, London. While the main event starts at 7pm early access VIP tickets are also available, with doors opening at 6pm for unrestricted access to the demonstrations.
