Free roam VR experience to open at The Galleria, Al Maryah Island
Zero Latency VR, a global leader in free-roam multiplayer virtual reality entertainment, will be bridging the physical and virtual worlds in Abu Dhabi this summer. The innovative experience will be Zero Latency’s first UAE location and Abu Dhabi’s first free roam VR experience. The attraction will debut at The Galleria Al Maryah Island, the capital’s leading lifestyle and entertainment destination.
At Zero Latency Abu Dhabi, up to eight people will be able to play with or against each other in a variety of completely immersive virtual worlds. With no cables or wires and a massive game space to roam, players are immersed inside a game where their bodies become the controllers, and their minds believe it’s real.
Players may choose their experiences from a library that includes over half a dozen games. This library features the zombie apocalypse favourite, Undead Arena, and puzzle adventure game, Engineerium, both available as special offers at the grand opening at The Galleria.
Zero Latency VR has partnered with Qwerty LLC, an Emirati start-up dedicated to investing in cutting-edge technologies, to bring their warehouse-sized, multiplayer gaming experience to Abu Dhabi for the first time.
“The UAE has taught us to always seek the best and aspire to become pioneers in vital sectors of our economy, such as technology. Qwerty LLC is proud to be shaped by their vision and become one of the first companies in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to work in the fields of virtual reality and offer the latest developed technology for everyone to experience,” said Khaleefa Al Dhaheri, Partner, Qwerty LLC.
Commenting on the upcoming opening David Robinson, general manager of The Galleria Al Maryah Island said, “We are very excited to introduce first-to-the-UAE concept Zero Latency to Abu Dhabi. As an experience-led and community-focused destination, The Galleria is committed to curating meaningful experiences for our guests. Our extraordinary mix of world-class entertainment and leisure attractions, combined with first-to-market concepts sets us apart as a destination. Zero Latency will add immensely to our family of entertainment offerings.”
The Abu Dhabi venue will also be using the latest Zero Latency Generation 2 VR System, developed in partnership with HP, Intel, and Microsoft.
