Fend off digital zombies and rogue robots in Las Vegas’ first free-roaming VR games
Las Vegas’ first free-roaming virtual reality site in which teams of players wear VR goggles to play interactive games will open next week.
The space will open Sept. 8, the same day that the public can start placing reservations. (When the same tech company launched the game in Australia, the waiting list was six weeks long.)
Players wearing wireless goggles will be untethered as they make their way through the VR arena and choose from three different games.
The 30-minute adrenaline rush will cost $50. Gamers must be at least 13 years old to play.
In the puzzle-themed adventure called Engineerium, players make their way along a series of floating platforms amid a world full of giant parrots, flying whales and other creatures.
In Singularity, players are taken to a military research station in space, where something’s very, very wrong. Traveling through narrow corridors at the virtual station, teams encounter killer drones and rogue robots.
Zombie Survival will appeal to followers of the undead trend. Armed with various “weapons,” players must survive waves of attacks by zombies waiting around every corner.
Zero Latency experiences are offered in a handful of cities around the world. According to a news release, the Sin City location will be the first in the American West.
