If you’re the type of person who arrived at the movie theatre early to mess around in the arcade, then you need to check out this amazing new activity in Vancouver. Zero Latency has partnered with Ubisoft to bring Far Cry into a stunning VR game, and you’ll be at the centre of the action!
Chances are high that you’ve already heard of Zero Latency, the groundbreaking VR experience that has landed here and around the world. Using state-of-the-art technology, Zero Latency lets you and up to 7 other people explore a ‘free roam’ virtual reality experience. And, instead of worrying about bumping into a nearby couch, you’ll actually have space to move around during the experience. Pair that with wireless equipment, and this is about as immersive as things can get.
Does that sound a little daunting to you? Don’t worry, because you’ll get a quick briefing about how to move around and interact with the world around you before the game starts. So, even if the last video game you played was like Resident Evil 2, heck, even Pokemon Crystal, you’ll still be more than capable once things get going.
And boy, do they get going, especially thanks to the new Far Cry VR experience- Dive Into Insanity. Set in the tropical and deadly Rook Islands, the world of Far Cry 3, you’ll face off against the psychotic ‘pirate lord’ Vaas while he hunts (yes, hunts) you and your companions. As you move around the island, you’ll be treated to incredible vistas, stunning details, and of course, some deadly encounters with your adversaries. Will you emerge victorious? Or, will you and your friends end up staying permanently?

Fans of the VR gaming world will recognize how momentous this partnership is, since most experiences like this are separate from the general video game world. This is the first time that any major gaming company, not just Ubisoft, has dipped its toes into these waters, and we can’t wait for more.
Of course, you don’t need to love video games to enjoy something that is truly unlike anything else you’ve experienced. Although, a few rounds of Rainbow Six: Siege beforehand might be the difference between a regular win and a flawless one.
Either way, the only way to find out is to enjoy it for yourself, and the only place to do it is at Zero Latency Vancouver.
