The gang from The Void very kindly asked us along to try out Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire at Stratford Westfield shopping centre in London.
Secrets of the Empire is a fully immersive VR Star Wars event, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced…
You may of had the opportunity to try out Oculus Rift or own the PS4 VR bundle, but Secrets of the Empire takes VR to places you only dreamed of. It’s like stepping into The Matrix and we’re blown-away.
You strap on a backpack (which essentially houses the computer needed for the experience) and wear a headset that covers half of your face. You’re not stuck to one spot like most VR games, no no no, instead you’re free to roam the hallways of a massive space station.
Throughout the game you even interact with elements in your surroundings, should you ever need to pick-up a gun not only do you see it through your headset, but the gun actually exists and you can physically pick it up.
You have a relatively simple mission; reconnaissance. Your team is set to travel to the molten planet of Mustafar and retrieve imperial intelligence, vital to the rebellion’s survival. However, can you remain undetected as you pose as Stormtroopers, or will you be spotted for the Rebel scum you are!
Star Wars Secrets of the Empire is wonderful, a truly multi-sensory experience and should be experienced first hand. Our review could never do this incredible event justice, you need to see it to believe it.
Head down to Stratford Westfield NOW and experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.
