Ready Player One and Westworld Exhibits Open SXSW
SXSW, which will begin today and continue through March 13, had its preview night last night and guests were treated to an incredible evening. Warner Bros. Ready Player One and HBO's Westworld were on full display, giving guests the opportunity to visit each "world" in person.
In the Westworld Exhibit, visitors got to visit the town of Sweetwater, and once inside they were surrounded by bartenders, Delos employees, rough riders, prostitutes, and village people. Also on hand was a Samurai warrior from Westworld's sister park, Samurai World. Season 2 will be introducing more storylines from that park, and it looks like maybe the worlds of the two parks will be colliding at some point.
For the Ready Player One exhibit, guests headed to downtown Austin where they entered a world straight out of the 1980s. They were surrounded by arcade games and even a DeLorean. The exhibit was also equipped with HTC Vive VR rooms, 80s music on the speakers, and Ready Player One star Tye Sheridan showing up to VR-DJ.
Ready Player One opens in theatres on March 29 and Westworld Season 2 premiers on April 22 on HBO.
