Zero Latency and Games Workshop have announced that they are collaborating to create a new Warhammer 40,000 game in VR. The new game will give players the ability to join the Space Marine franchise when the game launches in the Zero Latency location in 2023.

The 30-minute free-roam VR experience is a companion to the upcoming Space Marine II, which was announced at the Game Awards last year. Zero Latency is developing the title internally with Unreal Engine 5. According to the company, players will be able to experience being a member of the aforementioned elite soldier. They will see some familiar places and meet some of the franchise’s iconic characters through a 120-degree field of view, 5k visual fidelity, and 360-degree audio.

Scott Vandokelaar, CTO of Zero Latency, said, “Bringing customers into 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. We have always set out to create the most immersive experiences in the world and our new adventure in the Space Marines will offer something that has been simply impossible until now. “

This is the second partnership with the Zero Latency brand. Last year he released Far Cry VR, his free-roam adventure created in collaboration with Ubisoft and nDreams. He also has several original VR titles to his name, including Sol Raiders and Singularity.
