Originally from Australia, Zero Latency has rapidly expanded its warehouse-scale virtual reality (VR) experience across the world, landing on UK shores in Nottingham last year. Now the location-based entertainment (LBE) provider has announced plans to open a second UK location, this time in London at the end of October.
Offering complete free-roaming multiplayer VR experiences, the upcoming location at Boxpark Wembley will be a 400sq meter arena for up to eight players at once. They’ll be able to don backpack PC’s, headsets and headphones to run around the massive area, either teaming up to shoot each other or deadly enemies.
With each videogame offering 30-minute play sessions, groups will be able to dive into Sol Raiders a PvP sports experience. Two teams of up to four players go head-to-head across three fast-paced, virtual battlegrounds as they and their friends fight each other for control of a power source called Sol.
Other titles being offered are:
- 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 – Space, the final frontier. 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
“We’re thrilled to bring the world’s most advanced social gaming experience, Zero Latency, to London,” said John Lilley, CEO of MeetspaceVR in a statement. “Free roam VR is the future of group social entertainment attractions – we believe gaming is better when played together.
