London, UK – 29th November 2021 – Samsung Electronics UK Ltd. - invites gaming fans to defy reality with the launch of the Samsung Odyssey Gaming Corner – a unique and interactive pop-up experience in Selfridges London, running from 29th November until the end of December 2021.



Building on its collaboration with Guild Esports, the leading esports organisation co-owned by David Beckham, gamers can ‘go beyond’ and enter a new era of immersion thanks to Samsung’s award-winning Odyssey Neo G9.




Samsung Odyssey Gaming Corner gamers can play fan-favourites like Minecraft and Rocket League, and enjoy an unrivalled experience powered by two Odyssey Neo G9s nestled in a custom-built area, each with immersive 1000R curvature and Quantum Mini-LED technology, as well as dual 55” monitors for added competitive edge, just like those enjoyed by esports professionals.



When fans have hung up their digital armour, they can cheer on #GuildGang heroes Nihachu and Harrie Silver on 7th December 2021, enjoying all the action in high-definition, as the gaming icons battle it out live from the Samsung Odyssey Gaming Corner.

#Guildgang fans can join Nihachu and Harrie live in store at the Samsung Odyssey Gaming Corner in the basement at Selfridges London, while they play Rocket League and Minecraft. Twitchers across the world can tune into the action through Twitch TV.



Nihachu and Harrie will take the action beyond the screen to meet and greet fans in store afterwards for a one-time only moment.
