A giant Call of Duty-inspired experience is coming to Dubai this week

A huge, immersive video gaming-meets-real life experience is coming to Dubai, and it’s promising to be one of the coolest, biggest new openings in the city.

XStrike is set to open in Al Quoz this weekend, on Friday December 13, and it’s promising a crossover between live action combat and video games like Call of Duty. It’s all set across two massive, purpose-built, no-expense-spared maps, in a 31,000 sq ft warehouse.

With prices starting from Dhs89 per person, you’ll be able to get involved with the action – which will involve different missions and objectives where as many as 40 (yes, FORTY) players can all get in on the action at the same time in teams of two to 20 people.

Think of it as the most specced-out game of laser tag you’ve ever played. Every item used in the game is hooked up to a cloud-based system which displays scores in real time, and different armour sets include headgear, body armour and sensor bands which give you haptic feedback as you play.

It’s also all connected to a worldwide system which allows you to see how you’ve done against another half a million players in more than 60 countries.

As well as all the adrenaline-inducing live action, there are places to chill out, too, including food and beverage outlets, arcade machines and more.

And from the looks of things the team behind the concept aren’t stopping there, because there are also two more massive attractions set to open in 2020.

WipeOut will recreate the assault course from the global TV hit series, including the giant bouncy red balls, the punching wall and more; while MultiVRse will be a virtual reality theme park with a bunch of different “universes” to explore as you go – more on both of those new concepts to come.
