Warhammer-inspired VR adventure on the way

Games Workshop has teamed up with Zero Latency to develop a first of its kind interactive VR adventure based on the Warhammer: 40,000: Space Marine franchise.

Building on the legacy of the Space Marine video games, the upcoming free-roam VR experience will be developed in-house at Zero Latency using Unreal Engine 5 and join its seven other immersive experiences in its award-winning library with support from game developer Focus Interactive.

The new experience will allow up to eight players to suit up and step into the world of Space Marine, going into battle to fight for the Imperium of Man.

“Warhammer: 40,000: Space Marine 2 is going to be one of the biggest Warhammer video games ever, and it is hugely anticipated by fans globally. This is a fantastic extension of the franchise,” commented Jon Gillard, global head of licensing at Games Workshop. “Zero Latency are masters of crafting exciting VR entertainment in locations all over the world, including one near our HQ in Nottingham that we have been to… a lot.

“We are working closely with their talented team, and using their groundbreaking platform and technology, we know this partnership is going to generate an amazing VR experience that will surprise and delight anyone who’s ever wanted to be a Space Marine.”

Scott Vandokelaar, chief technology officer at Zero Latency, continued: “We’ve always set out to create the world’s most effortless immersive experiences, and our new Space Marine adventure will deliver something that’s simply been impossible until now.”
