Experience Ready Player One In VR At SXSW

Experience Ready Player One In VR At SXSW

HTC Vive will hold a special event at this month’s SXSW, giving showgoers the chance to step into Wade Watts' OASIS.

The event description reads, ‘Ready Player One is set in 2045, where the world is on the brink of collapse, but people have found salvation in the virtual reality universe called OASIS. Warner Bros. is bringing Steven Spielberg’s action adventure based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller Ready Player One to life at SXSW.

‘Guests will immerse themselves in vivid glimpses into hero Wade Watt’s world, experience the OASIS using VIVE VR, enjoy live artist performances, & more! READY PLAYER ONE is out in theaters March 29th’.

The event will be held at Brazos Hall on 10th March from 12:00 to 03:00.


Steve has been a games journalist on and off since the first PlayStation made games ‘cool’, but he’s never forgotten the thrill of finding a Space Invaders machine in the wild. Neuromancer is one of his favourite books and The Matrix is one of his favourite movies, so he’s been ready for VR all his life.
