The Rotting Zombie's News Anthology Round-Up No.3 (August 2021)


Viva Las Vengeance: Army of the Dead is an awesome sounding VR experience that is heading to London this September via Netflix in partnership with Fever and Pure Imagination Studios. This mobile-location-based VR experience will also be coming to several cities in the US including LA, Miami and New York. Over 30 minutes up to 6 players team up 'on a rescue mission to save survivors trapped in zombie-infested Las Vegas as part of the Las Vengeance rescue mission crew. Each truck allows players to see, hear, and feel the action at hand with high-end virtual reality headsets and state-of-the-art motion platforms bringing the action to life'. Tickets for this went on sale on 4th August and prices are from £18. This sounds like a load of fun and for people concerned about the safety 'extensive hygiene and social distancing regulations in accordance with local state mandates will be in effect'. For more details and for tickets check out the website.
