SYDNEY, Australia, October 26, 2015 – Alienware, the leader in high-powered gaming systems, is providing PAX attendees the chance to experience virtual reality gameplay with a specially built 5m x 5m space on the second level of its booth. Alienware partner and Melbourne based Zero Latency will help enable the VR gameplay, putting players into a world where a scientific experiment goes wrong and you must blast your way through giant bugs, lava worms and rock monsters to escape.

“We’ve been working with Zero Latency since February this year and we’re excited to bring a sample version of the experience to PAX,” said Joe Olmsted, Director of Product Planning, Alienware. “We always try to have something unique and exciting in our booth, and along with showing the Steam Machine for the first time in Australia, we know everyone will enjoy experiencing some virtual reality gameplay,”

In addition to the virtual reality experience, gamers will get the chance to test out the new generation of Alienware X51 desktops, now with liquid cooling, as well as the new Alienware 13, 15 and 17 laptops featuring key updates such as dynamic overclocking with the latest 6th generation Intel Core processors. The Alienware Area 51 and Alpha will also make a return to the booth this year along with the soon to be launched Alienware Steam Machine.

“We’ve made a number of key updates to our range of laptops and desktops in the past year to enhance the gameplay experience. From inclusion of the new Intel processors and Windows 10, to optional liquid cooling, Killer Gigabit Ethernet connections and dynamic overclocking, we’re excited about what these will mean for gamers” continued Olmsted.
