Zero Latency and Games Workshop have announced the development of an interactive VR adventure based on the world-renowned “Warhammer: 40,000: Space Marine” franchise. Building on the legacy of the “Space Marine” video games, the upcoming free-roam VR experience will be developed in-house at Zero Latency using Unreal Engine 5 and join its seven other immersive experiences in its library with support from game developer Focus Interactive.

"‘Warhammer: 40,000: Space Marine 2’ is going to be one of the biggest ‘Warhammer’ video games ever, and it is hugely anticipated by fans globally,” says Jon Gillard, global head, licensing, Games Workshop. “This is a fantastic extension of the franchise. Zero Latency are masters of crafting exciting VR entertainment in locations all over the world, including one near our HQ in Nottingham that we have been to ... a lot! We are working closely with their talented team, and using their groundbreaking platform and technology, we know this partnership is going to generate an amazing VR experience that will surprise and delight anyone who's ever wanted to be a Space Marine.” 

The new experience will allow up to eight players to suit up and step into the world of “Space Marine,” engaging with the game’s environments and characters along the way.  

The 30-minute adventure includes a completely wireless free-roam experience running on Zero Latency’s next gen platform, 5K visual fidelity, immersive 360-degree audio, a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 120-degree field of view. 

“Taking customers inside the world of a ‘Space Marine’ for the first time is a dream come true and building the experience from the ground up here at Zero Latency for our next generation platform makes it even more exciting,” says Scott Vandokelaar, chief technology officer, Zero Latency. “We’ve always set out to create the world’s most effortless immersive experiences, and our new ‘Space Marine’ adventure will deliver something that’s simply been impossible until now. We’ve been blown away by people’s reaction to Far Cry VR – our exclusive partnership with Ubisoft and nDreams – and we can’t wait to see what they’ll make of this latest adventure.”
