The world’s leading free-roaming, multiplayer VR entertainment experience is set to captivate the heart and minds of Manchester, as meetspaceVR brings the revolutionary social VR gaming experiences from Zero Latency, to the UK’s capital for social gaming. The launch of the new experience in Manchester further centralises its influence in the gaming industry.
The deeply immersive 30-45 minute VR experiences brings socialising with friends to a whole new dimension; battling zombies in post apocalyptic worlds, intergalactic firefights in deep space and even intense PvP battles against friends and family.
Players enter the arena equipped with headsets, headphones, and a gun (for shooter games) to navigate their full-motion avatars through the Ready Player One-like worlds. Senses are heightened as gamers manoeuvre through the hyper-realistic virtually generated world, all while set in a 250 sq metre vSports arena.
Pioneers and global leaders in warehouse scale and multiplayer reality gaming, Zero Latency are revitalising social gaming by offering visitors next generational group entertainment, enhanced with world leading free-roam VR. Zero Latency experiences can only be played at meetspaceVR arenas across the UK. Unlike other VR experiences, where you play solo in a confined area whilst tethered to a computer or cords, players can freely roam the arena, explore and fight together.
Perfect for first time gamers and thrill-seekers alike, games feature advanced storytelling, ultra-realistic enemies and epic final boss battles. Games become ultra-competitive as groups are ranked against one another based on their skillset; number of kills and deaths.
meetspaceVR will host Zero Latency’s full game product offering and introduces their Gen3 technology for freedom and immersion that is perfect for escaping reality:
- Zombie Survival, Outbreak Origins and Undead Arena – 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.
- FarCry VR – Fight your way across Rook Islands’ vast environments. Come face-to-face with Vaas as you and your group dive deeper and deeper into the jungle. You’re about to discover the definition of insanity.
- Singularity – 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.
John Lilley, Chief Experience Officer at Zero Latency said “We’re delighted to launch meetspaceVR in Manchester, the UK’s capital for social gaming and eSports.
Having been a long standing video gaming hub, it’s been our ambition to open a store in the city and share with the North West the best warehouse scale free-roam, multiplayer VR entertainment experiences from Zero Latency. There’s a growing appetite for cutting-edge socially engaging VR experiences and the games we offer cater to a wide audience from avid-gamers to first time visitors, but at the heart of every game is the key aspect that gaming is better when played together.
We look forward to see how the North West tackles these missions, and can’t wait to watch players battle against zombies and sacrifice their friends so that they can win!”
An innovation success story, Zero Latency is the first company in the world to launch warehouse scale free-roaming VR. Founded in 2014, the company has 57 venues in 26 countries and so far, more than 2 million players have played!
meetspaceVR’s Manchester branch is open and is located at MeetspaceVR, North3, Unit 2, Brightgate Way, Stretford, Manchester, M32 0TB. Sessions can be pre-booked here.
