Alienware Live AU is a new initiative between Alienware and City Hunter which will showcase the latest innovations from Alienware, engage with the Alienware community and celebrate its 20-year history
“For 20 years, Alienware has been at the forefront of PC gaming technology, our innovation has led to new ways for customers to play. The partnership with City Hunter continues our ethos of bringing high-end PC gaming experiences to our fans.” said Ben Jackson, General Manager, Consumer and Small Business. “Alienware Live AU is a great way for our fans to experience the latest Alienware hardware, provides a premium PC gaming experience for the City Hunter community, and play some games in a fully immersive environment!
Alienware Live AU features 28 high-end PCs, ready–to-play the latest games at blisteringly high resolutions and fast frame rates. The PCs will showcase Alienware’s entire range of Area 51, Aurora, Alpha, and gaming laptop lines, which is the culmination of 20 years of product development at the cutting edge of PC gaming technology. Of the 28 PCs at Alienware Live AU, two will be dedicated to running Virtual Reality (VR) experiences which will help make VR more accessible to a wider audience. The VR space will be home to an Oculus Rift space, powered by an Alienware Alpha and Graphics Amplifier, as well as an HTC Vive area which will be running on Alienware’s new VR-ready Aurora desktop PC. Both VR experiential spaces will also be running on Dell’s state of the art 43-inch 4K monitors.
