HTC Vive comes to EGX Rezzed in partnership with NVIDIA
EGX Rezzed 2016 is the number one event to try HTC Vive, the first-of-its-kind virtual reality system.
Described by Digital Foundry as the “premier VR experience” and fresh from a hugely successful UK public debut at EGX 2015, Vive comes to EGX Rezzed with five thrilling games, powered by GeForce GTX PCs:
Arizona Sunshine. A post-apocalyptic FPS built and optimised for room-scale virtual reality. Players must bash, slash and explode their way through hordes of zombies close enough to touch.
Fantastic Contraption. Designed from the ground up for room-scale VR. Players can walk around a beautifully realised grassy island in the sky, building huge machines with their own hands and watching them come to life.
Tilt Brush. Lets players paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.
Job Simulator. Already has numerous award nominations to its name and was described by Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Graham Smith as “the best game I played” [on Vive]. In a world where robots have replaced all human jobs, Job Simulator teaches players what it was like 'to job'.
TheBluVR. An immersive underwater shipwreck experience. Experience the awe, wonder, and majesty of the ocean through numerous encounters including coming face-to-face with an 80-foot blue whale.
A booking system will be in place for EGX Rezzed attendees to experience Vive. Visitors who would like to sample this ground-breaking virtual reality system should head to the NVIDIA and HTC Booth on the day to book their slot.
EGX Rezzed is the place to be to try cutting edge VR tech. In addition to the HTC Vive, a number of games will be playable on Oculus Rift headsets including the public debut of Gang Beasts VR. Get your tickets here.
