HTC continues its investments in locational VR having now partnered with Meltdown, the world’s first gaming and eSports bar chain, to put on ‘Vive Nights’. The first night is set to take place on Wednesday, 16th of November at Meltdown bars in London, Cologne and Paris, where customers will get the chance to try out the Vive headset and compete against each other for prizes.
The HTC Meltdown partnership aims to give people more access to the Vive, whilst exploring the possibilities of VR in eSports. Jon Goddard, Marketing Director, VR (Europe) at HTC said, “We understand that Vive is an expensive purchase, and to truly convince people of the possibilities that room-scale VR allows, they have to try it. Not everyone can get to the big gaming conferences, so by partnerships such as this, we’re continuing our mission to make Vive accessible to everyone.”
