When it comes to virtual reality (VR) with devices such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality, large part of the experience comes from the power and quality of your PC. In order to get the best from VR, you need a great PC. This is not exactly an inexpensive task, however. To celebrate the launch of its upcoming shooter Evasion, developer Archiact have teamed with PC maker Alienware to launch a competition to win an Area 51 Gaming Rig.
Evasion is due to launch for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR on 9th October, 2018. Fans can enter the competition for the chance to win an Alienware Area 51 PC gaming rig and a copy of Evasion.
The Alienware Area 51 PC is a powerful desktop PC powered by an Intel Core i9 7900X, with up to 4.5GHz using Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0. Graphics are driven by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5X RAM. A 512 GB SSD hard drive allows for fast loading speeds for your applications, while a 2TB SATA hard drive provides storage space.
Also included is an Alienware AW568 gaming keyboard and Alienware AW558 Advanced gaming mouse and an Alienware 25 AW2518H monitor.
Copies of Evasion are also up for grabs. Evasion is the latest VR title from Architect, and is a sci-fi shooter which can be played either single-player or in co-operative multiplayer. Players can choose from one of four classes, Striker, Surgeon, Engineer and Warden. Each of these classes has its own capabilities and weaponry, and players can customise the character as the progress.
The contest is open to residents of Canada and the USA, and begins at 12:00am Eastern Time on 10th September, 2018 and is due to end on 21st October, 2018 at 11:59pm (ET). Further information can be found on the Evasion website.
