We Love VR returns as part of We Love Aotearoa

After being postponed back in August due to changes in New Zealand’s Covid-19 Alert Levels, the team behind We Love Aotearoa are excited to be able to bring you an awesome weekend of fun to kick off summer!

The free series of events will now take place on Saturday December 19th, proudly boasting a wide range of activities, performances, and workshops at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds.

With something for all ages, the We Love Aotearoa series has been organised by a group of international travellers (including Gabe Newell from Valve), who found themselves based in Auckland during the Covid-19 pandemic. During their stay, they have been overwhelmed by the manaakitanga and aroha they have received from the people of Aotearoa. These events are a “thank you to the people of New Zealand” for their efforts to get us to where we are now.

VR Goodness

As part of the weekend you can head along to We Love VR and experience a never-before-seen virtual reality event showcasing the latest in gaming technology. The We Love VR zone will be hosted by New Zealand’s top VR developers demonstrating their titles along with Half-Life: Alyx (R18) across 20 stations. With a wide variety of age-appropriate options, there’s something for everyone, including tamariki.

Come down and enter the draw to win your very own Index VR set by Valve Software as well as a custom-built PC. 

We Love VR will be running on both Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of December from 10am to 3pm at ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. Entry is free and unticketed.
