Want a side of VR with your cinema experience? Village Entertainment has announced they will be introducing a brand new virtual reality arcade to their Knox outpost.

It will be called the XOVR (pronounced “the crossover”, since you ask) and Village is pinning it as a state-of-the-art virtual reality gaming destination. XOVR will create a completely immersive experience for players that includes driving, shooting, riding, flying and exploring new worlds. It will feature a suite of simulators combining high-quality VR headsets, engaging content and haptic feedback (you know, vibrations and tactile stuff). There will be varying levels of skill and complexity, meaning it will suit both expert gamers and first-time gamers alike.

The XOVR will open to the public from November 23 at Village Cinemas Knox. You game?
