Netflix has released some exciting TV shows and movies during the course of 2021, one of the biggest films being Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead. As revealed in May, the movie is accompanied by a travelling location-based VR experience (LBE) called Vive Las Vengence. It’s now been confirmed that the UK leg of the tour is coming to London in September.
The tour began this month kicking off in Los Angeles and New York City, followed by Las Vegas and Washington D.C. London will be the first city outside the US to see the VR-enabled mobile taco truck arrive, offering VR and zombie fans alike the chance to battle hordes of the undead on the Las Vegas strip. The story is set several years before the events of the Netflix film.
Up to six people can team up and try to rescue survivors trapped in zombie-infested Las Vegas using Valve Index headsets and StrikerVR guns. To make the experience truly immersive the truck features state-of-the-art motion platforms whilst providing full COVID-19 compliance with extensive hygiene and social distancing precautions in place.
“Army of the Dead is one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year and now fans have the chance to climb aboard the taco truck to experience the world for themselves,” said Greg Lombardo, Head of Experiences at Netflix in a statement. “We are thrilled to partner with the Snyders, Pure Imagination Studios and Fever to bring Army of the Dead to London this summer in a way like never before.”
Tickets for Army of the Dead’s Viva Las Vengence: A VR Experience in London go on sale from 4th August at 10am BST. Prices start from £18 GBP for the 30-minute experience. To make sure you don’t miss out the waiting list for tickets opens today (28th July) granting early access to those who sign up.
