Zero Latency Partners with VIVE for Champions of the Undead

Zero Latency is celebrating three million global plays by launching its first-ever worldwide VR competition, ‘Champions of the Undead’. The competition is being run in partnership with VIVE, and will pit players in a high score contest playing Undead Arena.

Zero Latency opened its first venue in 2015, in Melbourne, Australia. During that time, Zero Latency has continued to innovate, bringing players new adventures and unique experiences. As stated above, Zero Latency has now seen more than 3 million plays. Players themselves have killed over 200 million zombies. Of course, the Champions of the Undead competition is set to increase that tally even further.

The Champions of the Undead competition will run from today, 10th August, 2023, to Wednesday, 6th September, 2023. The Grand Final will take place on Thursday, 5th October 2023, in Las Vegas. Up to eight players can play together at a time. Players can try as many times as they want to perfect their skills and reach their best score.

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.

“This is the first time in our history that we’re bringing our global community together in this exciting way, and giving back to the players that have supported us,” said Tim Ruse, CEO at Zero Latency. “We’re thrilled that we’ve now seen three million plays across the globe since we started this journey ten years ago, with people continually looking for experiences that allow them to connect with others. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this competition, on a scale that we’ve never done before.”
