Boy, that year and a bit
went by fast. Fortress Sydney
, which is set to become the flagship HQ for the brand, will be opening its doors this coming April 1, no jokes. And alongside will be Telstra
as a key partner who will also provide the location with its high-speed fixed network.
The "Telstra Lounge" is also the officially-named location for Fortress' PC gameplay zones.
Telstra is strengthening its support of Australian gamers with the launch of a new partnership with Fortress, bringing the ultimate video games venue to Sydney on April 1.
The partnership marks a significant milestone for Fortress as it prepares to open the doors on a second venue in Sydney, after the successful launch of Fortress Melbourne in 2020.
Supported by Telstra’s high speed fixed network, Fortress Sydney is a multi-level entertainment venue devoted to games, with everything from board games and role-playing, to arcade, PC and console.
As part of the agreement, a new Telstra Lounge will be available in both Sydney and Melbourne venues, which will offer customers access to the latest games technology and state-of-the-art equipment.
Speaking on the partnership, Genelle Sharples, Principal – Media, Sponsorship, Awards & Experiential said: “Aussies’ love for gaming continues to grow and we know how important a reliable, fast connection is to a great gaming experience – wherever you are. We’ve got you covered at home and on the go with our gaming products and 5G network, and we’re excited to be partnering with Fortress to bring the ultimate gaming venue to Sydney. We look forward to welcoming gaming enthusiasts from around the country to enjoy what the venue has to offer.”
