Sydneysiders, prepare to call in sick. Alienware Live AU — headquartered at Chatswood-based gaming cafe City Hunter — is open today, and free from 19 to 21 August.
Inside is 28 machines from Alienware range, virtual reality, 4K gaming, and the perfect place to hide out from the responsibilities of the real world (it’s too bright out there, anyway).
Among the PCs on offer is the Alienware Area 51, newly released Aurora desktop PC, Alpha R2 micro-PC, and the entire laptop range. Also on display is the Alienware Graphics Amplifier, that lets you plug in any PCIE graphics card to bolster your gaming specs with Alienware laptops and the Alienware Alpha R2.
There’s dual Oculus Rift and HTC Vive set ups, too, so you can play job simulator to your heart’s content (in all seriousness, I highly recommend job simulator).
The venue plans to host regular meet ups, tournaments, and be used to give fans a sneak peek at upcoming game releases prior to launch.
City Hunter Co-Founder Jun Zhong said a lot of planning has gone into Alienware Live AU, “with every little detail worked to ensure we’ve built a space that we ourselves would want to play in.”
You’ll need to book to get in, though. You can do that though the City Hunter website.
