Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire VR experience hits London on December 16

The VOID just announced a third location for its top-of-the-line Star Wars VR installation. London now joins Orlando and Anaheim offering Star Wars: Secrets Of The Empire.

The London location in the Shepherd’s Bush neighborhood at the Westfield shopping center opens starting December 16, the same day the attraction opens in Disney Springs outside Walt Disney World in Florida. The California location in Anaheim, right outside Disneyland, opens January 5.

Tickets to the London Star Wars attraction cost £32.50 each, which is around $43 in U.S. dollars. You can get them on The Void’s website and up to four people can go through the experience together. The U.K. pricing is considerably more than the $30 being charged for tickets (which are selling fast) to locations in the United States.

The VOID is a Utah-based startup that develops VR experiences that provide an incredible sense of presence and immersion. They use backpacks — cutting away all wires — combined with high-end VR headsets to provide great visuals. The sense of presence is enhanced with environmental effects like heat, wind, cold or vibrations from the ground. Objects in the real-world are placed to match the location of their virtual counterparts, so you can reach out and touch the environment too. Secrets Of The Empire even incorporates hand tracking.

The PC Gaming channel is presented by Intel®‘s Game Dev program.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
