Australian-born Zero Latency is launching its first worldwide VR competition, allowing users to compete globally for a chance to take home a $15,000 USD grand prize. Runners-up will score themselves an HTC VIVE XR Elite, which is certainly not a terrible consolation prize. It’s all in celebration of 3 million plays across the globe with those looking to compete able to do so at any of Zero Latency’s 70+ venues worldwide. The top player from each region is then flown to Las Vegas for the Grand Final! The VR competition has been dubbed ‘Champions of the Undead’, where players will compete for high scores by playing Zero Latency’s popular Undead Arena game.
We got to check out Undead Arena ourselves over 2 years ago now, enjoying the game’s more open nature. Undead Arena allows you to move around, utilise environmental traps and platforms, and slay zombies to your heart’s content.
Being a global leader in the Virtual-Reality market, it is exciting to see Zero Latency launch its debut VR competition on this scale and opens up so many possibilities for the future. Zero Latency CEO, Tim Ruse, had the following to say about Champions of the Undead:
“This is the first time in our history that we’re bringing our global community together in this exciting way, and giving back to the players that have supported us. We’re thrilled that we’ve now seen three million plays across the globe since we started this journey ten years ago, with people continually looking for experiences that allow them to connect with others. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this competition, on a scale that we’ve never done before. We’re continuing to innovate and grow, and are looking forward to the next 3 million plays from our dedicated, passionate players worldwide.”
