A PC-focused ‘Gaming Bunker’ has opened in the Tottenham Court Road branch of Currys PC World.
The retailer says it will be “the UK's biggest interactive space dedicated solely to PC gaming accessories and the only spot in the UK where gamers can trial some of the highest-spec gaming technology on the market”.
It will have ten networked high-end PCs packing GeForce GTX 680 GPUs running a number of F2P titles such as Hawken, League of Legends, World of Tanks and Planetside 2, as well as a couple of retail games – Assassin’s Creed 3 and Borderlands 2.
And the keyboards will be those cool backlit kind.
A product range including some 150 SKUs will also be available offering brands such as Razer, TurtleBeach, SteelSeries, Corsair, MadCatz, Roccat and Logitech. Razer, in particular, will offer its biggest-ever in-store display.
"We’re incredibly excited to unveil the Gaming Bunker at our Tottenham Court Road store,” category manager for PC gaming peripherals and upgrades Simon Urquhart stated.
“The store has a great track record for hosting launches and events, so it’s the perfect place for the UK's newest PC gaming destination; the most interactive space of its kind.
“We look forward to introducing gamers to the best mice, keyboards, headsets and other essential PC gaming gear. But as well as being the best place to try out these superb products, we hope the gaming community will enjoy coming to events, launches and tournaments and get involved in making the Gaming Bunker a hub of PC gaming and eSports in the heart of London."
