MediaMarkt VR Truck heading for DreamHack 2018

Another highlight in store for DreamHack visitors will be the MediaMarkt Truck. Measuring 18 metres from end to end, this giant mobile exhibition stand is an amazing attraction all by itself! Packed to the rafters with the very latest VR systems, fans will be invited to immerse themselves in the world of virtual reality. VR product demonstrations will be held in the spacious showroom inside the truck and the gaming zone at the back. The truck also features a powerful onboard PA for superb sound.
