Exploring the Odyssey Universe, Discovering Industry-Leading Features
The first thing that gamers encounter in Odyssey Universe is a huge lobby. Five separate worlds are available from the lobby, each with a separate mission available. These worlds — Levels Ark, G9, G8, G7 and G6 — are inspired by and named after the Odyssey gaming lineup.
Let’s take a look at Level Ark. Level Ark offers a mission to escape from a maze by answering Odyssey-based questions. In order to unlock different pathways, players will have to use all the knowledge they have about Odyssey monitors.
Level G9 was inspired by the Odyssey Neo G9, an extremely large display that looks and feels like two monitors combined into one. In Level G9, gamers have to get a golf ball to land in the hole — which might sound easier than it is. An ultrawide 49-inch monitor like the Neo G9’s will help them smoothly complete the mission without too much stress.
Level G8 features a racing track with plenty of curves, representing the curvature of the Odyssey Neo G8 (1000R) and Odyssey OLED G8 (1800R). Racing along the track opens new views of a vast 360° universe for an overwhelmingly immersive experience. Level G8 will provide a challenge, since it has two objectives: a time trial race and counting the number of monitors that appear next to the track while players race by.
To highlight a refresh rate that is essential for gaming monitors, Level G7 was designed as a shooting range. Gamers need to hit all their targets in a limited time, made easier with a refresh rate of up to 240Hz available on the high-end Odyssey monitors.
And at Level G6, gamers need to collect tokens within an overwhelmingly huge shopping mall in a limited time. Gamers will see Odyssey gaming monitors in the stores and come across all the Samsung Odyssey monitors as they hunt their objectives.
For gamers whose blood starts pumping at the thought of a thrilling experience created in Fortnite, Samsung Electronics has prepared a “scavenger hunt” event for gamers to dive into. By following SypherPK and NickEH30 on social media to get clues, players can explore the Odyssey Universe map to find hidden answers in each of the worlds. By submitting answers at the Odyssey Universe event website, they’ll be eligible to enter sweepstakes for Odyssey gaming monitors. Winners will be announced on the Samsung Odyssey Twitch channel on March 30 at 7 p.m. (EST).
