Microgravity, a leader in location-based entertainment, is all set to bring one of the most advanced Virtual Reality-Augmented Reality (VR-AR) experiences to India. The company today launched India’s foremost and a highly innovative gaming facility in Gurugram, Haryana. Located in JMD Empire Square, this flagship facility is spread over 12,000 sq. ft. and will offer the most innovative single and multiplayer experiences. These
include high-end simulators for epic scale free-roaming & racing, virtual reality bays, classic video gaming docks, and a golf experience that uses cutting edge projection and simulation technology. Microgravity’s facility will be open for public from 28 February onwards.
Microgravity has also partnered with Zero Latency, the pioneer and global leader in free roam and multi-player VR entertainment to enhance and provide the most unique and adrenaline-rushing gaming experience. This state-of-the-art free-roaming technology will include games like Singularity, Engineerium, SOL Raiders, Outbreak Origins, and Zombie Survival. Gaming enthusiasts can now get their hands on the most advanced gaming tech with their squad and go ‘Sol’ searching, fight zombies, or go investigating on a secret mission.
Announcing the launch of ‘A Magical World Crafted with Tech,’ Rahul Bhattacharya, Co founder & MD, Microgravity, said “We are really excited about bringing an entertainment and a gaming concept that is highly Immersive, Safe, and Adventurous. With the digital reality gaming industry gaining popularity, we had the desire to bring the best in innovation to a wider audience. At our facility, people can experience new content in single and multiplayer formats. Our partnership with Zero Latency brings the best in this space.

One can have a unique entertainment experience that blends augmented & virtual reality with sports and arcade gaming, making it an interactive experience for the family, friends, and children above 12 years of age.
With a focus on offering a highly safe, secure, and hygienic environment, Bhattacharya added, “People are looking for safe and newer experiences post the stress caused by the pandemic. With help from our expert team, and an exclusive tie-up with Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) we have embraced a multipronged disinfection strategy to create a safe space. Consumers will be able to pick out their next immersive adventure with all measures in place.”
A recent report by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP (DTTILLP), the gaming industry size is expected to expand at a CAGR of 40% by 2022, taking the market size to US$2.8 billion. As immersive technologies continue to gain popularity, the AR-VR gaming industry is poised for exponential growth in the coming years.
Our Experience at Microgravity
We attended the launch day event at Microgravity. Safe to say that while safety and sanitation is a major concern after COVID situation but we commend the management staff that they maintain the highest standard for cleanliness and sanitation. Every equipment is sanitized after every session of use. And according to Microgravity they get UV clean at the end of each day.
We loved the games and experiences starting from Zero Latency free roam game which is a multiplayer game and has many gaming environments like Singularity, Engineerium, SOL Raiders, Outbreak Origins, and Zombie Survival. We loved the SOL Raiders.
Another cool experience is the realistic golf experience which gives you the opportunity to explore playing in many golf parks around the globe. The way it tracks the spins of the ball, the projectile at which ball is hit is really great. It also has dynamic environment where the user can simulate wind and its effect on the ball.
Coming to Racing games you can experience very realistic racing games where the user is able to feel every sort of bump, any crash and every sort of experience which is felt while driving a real car. In These sections, it also has 360VR where users can experience the roller coaster realistic feeling using AR-VR Technology. This is so realistic that you can feel even gravity while roller coasters go up and down. Users are able to experience the same thrill which can be felt on a real roller coaster, but in a very safe environment. Any time a user starts to feel nervous or any sorts of uncommon feeling, can stop immediately. So I think thrill with safety is the amazing thing there.
