HBO is pulling out all the stops to get viewers excited for the upcoming season of Westworld with its Virtual Reality Westworld Experience, which will make its way to Malaysia. In anticipation of the second season of Westworld , which debuts same time as the U.S. on Monday, April 23 at 9am exclusively on HBO (Astro Ch 411 / HD 431), fans in Malaysia are invited take a trip into this thrilling Emmy®-winning drama series at an immersive Westworld Experience event from 18 to 29 April.
Presented by HBO Asia and in partnership with Astro, the event will be held at Sunway Pyramid (Blue Concourse) with numerous fun-filled activities for fans including an exciting Virtual Reality experience, brought directly from the U.S., which would leave visitors wondering what’s real and what’s not!
The entire Virtual Reality experience begins with an introduction by a white-suited host – just like any visitor would encounter as a guest starting their visit to Westworld at the Delos office, the corporation behind Westworld. Visitors would then be instructed to don the Virtual Reality goggles and headphones, entering an immersive and interactive experience!
Once in the Virtual Reality realm, guests are invited to select either a black or white hat, try on suitable outfits and pick their weapon of choice (in reality, a joystick with a trigger), before embarking on different virtual activities within Westworld such as practicing at a shooting range or getting involved in a shootout with Sheriff Pickett.
The Westworld Virtual Reality experience is open to all visitors from Monday to Thursday, and exclusively to pre-registered Astro subscribers from Friday to Sunday. Log on to astro.com.my/astrocircle for further details. This immersive event is only for adults aged 21 years and above. The Westworld Experience will be hosted first in Malaysia, followed by Singapore
