FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Virtual London Grows once more
Metaversum, developer of Twinity, the virtual world made of real people and real places, is adding new areas to Virtual London on 30 April. From the interiors of St Paul’s Cathedral, a live show from ‘Dimitri from Paris’ to a weekend full of events, there will be something for everybody in Virtual London.
Berlin, 29 April 2010 – After successfully expanding Central London to areas including the Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, Twinity, the virtual world made of real people and real places, is expanding once more to bring in the majestic Strand and the vibrant South Bank to Virtual London’s members and entrepreneurs.
From 30 April on Twinity members will be able to walk from the west end of London along The Strand, among some of the most famous theatres right up to the Millennium Bridge, on to the South Bank to the Shakespeare’s globe, the brick work Tate modern building and back to the Waterloo Bridge.
As a special attraction the entire interior of the St Paul’s Cathedral will be made available, enabling all members to view the great dome with all its artwork from the inside. The model will also have reproduction of all the areas, artwork and sculptures present in the Cathedral.
To celebrate this launch there will be a 30 minute live performance by DJ ‘Dimitri from Paris’ in Virtual London. Known for broadcasting the first ever house music show in France and for producing runway tracks for Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, to name a few, Dimitri will be showcasing tracks from his upcoming album ‘Get Down with the Philly sound’. Twinity users will get a taste of the album before it’s launched to the world.
Twinity will also have a special offer: 5 entrepreneurs or residents based in and around the newly launched areas can win their virtual office, store or apartment at the same address in Virtual London! Real residents should just send their name and real address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, these new areas in Virtual London are also open for business: opening a shop, gallery, music venue, bar or restaurant has never had hipper venues in Virtual London.
