Zero Latency, the global leader in immersive entertainment and creator of the largest free-roam VR network in the world, is expanding their ongoing partnership with VIVE, that delivers on the promise of VR with game-changing technology and best-in-class content, to support the first-ever worldwide VR competition, Champions of the Undead.

Champions of the Undead will be an epic battle across the Zero Latency community, where players will need to shoot zombies and score big in one of its most popular games, Undead Arena. Players can simply go to one of the 70+ Zero Latency venues worldwide, play a round of Undead Arena, and they’ll be able to compete to win. The top player from each region will be flown to Las Vegas for the Grand Final, where the highest-scoring zombie slayer will be crowned, receiving $15,000 USD prize money. Runners up will score a VIVE XR Elite worth $1,099 USD to continue exploring new possibilities at home.

Zero Latency has been rolling out its new platform over the past year, the HTC VIVE Focus 3. The technology uses an exclusive remote rendering stack and the latest 6E wireless technology to seamlessly stream 5K VR to up to 8 players simultaneously, delivering up to 16x performance over traditional all-in-one headsets. With no backpack computers, sensors, or other distractions, Zero Latency’s world-first platform offers players the deepest, most effortless immersive experience available today.

“Our partnership with VIVE over the past ten years has enabled us to implement game-changing technology that continues to innovate in the VR space,” said Scott Vandonkelaar, CTO at Zero Latency. “After the implementation of our latest next-generation platform release last year, The Champions of the Undead competition is just another step in our ongoing relationship with VIVE. We’re excited to create new thrilling experiences and continue to implement new features that aren’t possible on other platforms.

“The world needs a champion, and who better to find them than Zero Latency, which continues to push boundaries with immersive and memorable experiences,” said Thomas Dexmier, HTC VIVE ANZ – Country Manager. “VIVE Focus 3’s versatility and ease-of-use for free-roam VR, combined with Zero Latency has proven to be a winner. It’s exciting to be partnering for this epic competition on a global stage that hasn’t been seen before, showing our industry-leading technology to players worldwide.”

The Champions of the Undead competition will run from Thursday 10th August 2023 to Wednesday 6th September 2023. The Grand Final will take place on Thursday 5th October 2023 in Las Vegas. The highest score from each Regional Leaderboard will be flown to Las Vegas for the Grand Final with a more challenging bespoke version of Undead Arena filled with even more zombies. The winner of this epic Grand Final will receive $15,000 USD.

Runners up will score a VIVE XR Elite worth $1,099 USD to continue exploring new possibilities at home. VIVE XR Elite is a powerful, convertible, and lightweight XR headset that conforms to you. Offering both the untethered freedom of all-in-one XR and the power of PC VR through wireless streaming.

Recent data shows that Google searches for ‘gran turismo game’ increased by 251% following the release of the new Gran Turismo film based on the long-standing video game series.

Onlinecasinos365 analysed Google Trends data over the past three months to find that ‘gran turismo game’ has seen a spike in searches following the worldwide film release of Gran Turismo (2023).

The data reveals that worldwide searches for ‘gran turismo game’ rose by 251% compared to prior to the films release, according to Google Trends. This search term peaked during the first weekend after the film was released on August 25th and has remained consistently higher than former search interest.

Google searches for ‘gran turismo’ also increased by 331% during the same three-month period, which could have resulted from interest in both the film adaptation and original game series.

The 2023 film release follows the real-life story of Jann Mardenborough, who became a professional British racing driver after discovering a talent for playing the Gran Turismo video games. The film currently holds a 7.4/10 rating on IMDb and has grossed more than $93.5 million worldwide at the Box Office since its release, according to Box Office Mojo.

The Gran Turismo series of racing simulation games was first developed by Polyphony Digital in 1997 for the PlayStation console, where it remained a platform exclusive for many years. The franchise’s most recent release, Gran Turismo 7, which came out in March last year, was the first game in the series to be made playable across multiple consoles.

Gran Turismo has become a best-selling video game franchise under the Playstation brand with more than 90 million units sold worldwide, according to the Playstation Blog.

A spokesman for Onlinecasinos365 commented:

“With an increase in new films based on popular video game franchises, Gran Turismo (2023) takes a novel approach by intertwining a real-life success story with the story’s narrative. This allows it to stand out from other adaptations which often unsuccessfully force the game’s source material directly onto the movie plot.

“This is a very exciting time for gamers and film fans alike, as more gaming stories are finally brought to the big screen. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for video game adaptations and whether any of them will be able to match the success of their original title.”

MapleStory M, Nexon’s free-to-play mobile MMORPG, is thrilled to announce the release of a new character class, Cadena, which comes with a wealth of new events for mobile Maplers to get involved in!

Cadena grew up in Grandis and is the sole surviving member of the Nova royal family after Magnus, a Nova warrior, became a traitor to his race and invaded Heliseum. Cadena was saved by the Royal Guard and raised by the Shadowdealers, a trade organization, where she learned to fight. The princess chose to reinvent herself by taking on the new name of Cadena and cutting off her Nova features. She now seeks to climb the ranks of the Shadowdealers while escaping the trauma of her past. Her fighting tactics have a streetwise edge, and she excels at close combat.

The introduction of Cadena comes with exciting events that will grant players rewards and EXP:

  • Cadena Growth Mission Event: Rewards available for Cadena after reaching a certain level and completing certain missions.
  • Grow with Cadena Event: Rewards and EXP granted for selected character when Cadena levels up.
  • Cadena Login Rewards: Consists of Extra Character Slot Coupon, Auto-battle Charge Ticket, Whetstone, and Pet Box to help users grow their character

MapleStory M’s latest update will also be improving basic quest rewards so that there are improved rewards and equal acquisition amounts across characters, as well as improving Growth Support for All rewards. That’s not everything though, as mobile Maplers can also get involved in some further limited-time events:

  • Full Moon Party: An event where you can acquire event coins by hunting in the field and participating in various mini-games, which you can then use at the event coin shop. It’s the perfect opportunity to receive style items and growth materials for your new character!
  • Mega Burning Plus Event: A selected character may earn an additional 2 levels up to 140 every time the character levels up! All jobs selectable.
  • 5X5 Bingo Event: Participate in a Bingo Board Game and earn rewards according to the bingo count! The Bingo Board Game can be completed by clearing missions.
