April 12, 2022, Oslo, Norway and Andorra: Today, Opera GX is making a step from browser development towards property development. The idea behind the pilot Opera GX Village is to create a dream residential community for professional gamers and creators, built with their specific lifestyles in mind. A futuristic-utopia, where every home is furnished with top of the line gaming setups, decor, LEDs and fully customizable, just like the Opera GX browser but translated into a home.
“For any famous gamer or streamer, surely the ultimate flex is to turn your entire house into the most incredible gaming setup imaginable, with customization options throughout, from the doorbell tone to the decor? In Opera GX Village this paradise is a reality, where you can be whoever you want to be,” said Krystian Kolondra, EVP PC & Gaming, Opera.
Every home in Opera GX Village will provide its residents with the ultimate gaming environment. From incredible top-end gaming setups in every single room (we mean every room), more LEDs than an esports final, the highest internet speeds imaginable, plus an in-room food delivery service, so they’ll never have to hit pause when they need to bag some eats.
Hundreds of famous gamers and streamers have already registered their interest in becoming part of this unique prototype residential community, promising a little slice of gamer heaven in the mountains of Andorra.
“As a brand that celebrates gaming culture, Opera GX had a vision to translate how it enables gamers in the browsing space, into a fully immersive and tangible real-world experience. Opera GX Village is a love letter to gamers and the tropes that dominate gaming culture today, delivered affectionately through a tongue in cheek campaign that will see two lucky fans win a stay at a prototype home in Andorra.” added Krystian Kolondra, EVP Gaming at Opera.
With GX Village, the fully customizable Opera GX browser with more than 14 million monthly active gamers is exploring the possibilities of taking customization to the next level and paying homage to gamers. The first prototype home is open for interested gamers to come and test this lifestyle by simply sharing a video, image or text on Twitter telling us why your gaming background makes you the perfect first resident, tagging @operagxofficial and #operagxvillage. The most creative entry will win.
While GX village is a pilot exploration of the idea, one lucky winner can win an all expenses paid trip to stay in the incredible prototype house in Andorra from 6th May to 8th May, where they’ll get to spend the weekend living like a famous gamer.
Whether they play games or stream as a pastime or a profession, Opera GX is the real home for gamers everytime they go online. Opera GX offers a little patch of internet heaven, with no lag and all the industry gamers want, as well as unique features like CPU, RAM and Network limiters, delivering the best of both gaming and browsing. GX also comes with Twitch and Discord built right into the sidebar, so gamers can always stay connected with the things they love.
