The latest out of home, live VR attraction to hit the UK, Virtually Dead mixes free-roaming virtual reality with live theatrical performances to bring Zombies to life in a secret East London location.
The third UK based virtual reality attraction to be announced already this year, Virtually Dead aims to bring the intangible essence of live performances and fuse it with virtual reality’s potent capability to terrify.
Coming to a secret location in East London in March, the new VR experience utilises the free-roaming tracking of the HTC Vive, plunging participants into an immersive, Zombie-filled nightmare.
Virtually Dead is being produced by Noma Labs, a Dutch company branding themselves ‘millenial experience experts’, but are being assisted by Vertigo Games, the team behind the VR Zombie shooter Arizona Sunshine and room-scale god game Skyworld.
The experience sounds, frankly exhausting with the website states that its to last an hour and take place in a world spanning “half a kilometre”. According to Noma Labs, during the experience, actors will guide participants to specific VR designated areas where they’ll get to explore a “virtual world using its room-scale VR technology”.
Jon Goddard, Head of European VR Marketing at HTC commented: “By combining our VR with immersive theatre, we aim to introduce new audiences to HTC Vive before our April launch. We have produced something that showcases VR in a whole new light and will attract people outside of the usual circles that would typically be interested in a VR event.”
