Australian-born video games and entertainment powerhouse, Fortress, is set to open a second venue at Central Park Mall on Broadway in Sydney.

Scheduled to open for business next summer, the new site, which will clock in at just under 3000sqm, will be the largest video games and entertainment venue in the southern hemisphere.

Following in the footsteps of Fortress Melbourne (which will celebrate its second birthday in March), Fortress CEO and Co-Founder, Jon Satterley, has ensured that the new Sydney venue contains the very best of the original site, plus more.

“Melbourne was our first – you might call it prototype. Fortress Sydney will be the jewel in our crown. It will be an awe-inspiring new ‘home of games’ – the epitome of everything we have worked towards. The ultimate statement in live games culture entertainment.”

Like Melbourne, Fortress Sydney will be home to a purpose-built esports arena and multiple broadcast production facilities, so Fortress can continue to bring national and grassroots tournaments to the gaming community. Satterley says that the new venue will have something for gamers of all types, experience levels, and interests.

“A fantasy-themed Tavern, based on Fortress’s unique character lore, an incredible competitive and esports games arena featuring a mezzanine/VIP level, another sci-fi inspired bar, arcades, PC gaming zone with the highest spec Alienware rigs, private party booths, amazing food and drinks brought to your table.”

Spread over two levels, with many different spaces for public and private social enjoyment, Fortress Sydney’s 1,000 person capacity is ready to welcome gamers from across the city.

“Our Sydney friends and fans of Fortress have been begging us to bring the Flagship experience to their beautiful city. Well, here we come!”.
