Dubai – Dubai International (DXB), a leading global hub for travelers from all over the world, is now home to the region’s first airport game lounge concept with the opening of Game Space on November 21, 2022. The unique space will continue to delight travelers enhancing the experience at the world’s busiest international airport.
Offering a new alternative to travelers’ normal pre-flight routine, Game Space is located in the heart of the DXB Family Zone at B Gates in Terminal 3. A focal point for game-loving passengers of all ages, from gaming families to wanting to try it for the first time for seasoned gamers, this vibrant hub offers travelers the opportunity to gather, relax and indulge their passion for play.
The room features 40 gaming stations, each with 50-inch screens and side-by-side seating for single or multiplayer gaming. With both PCs and consoles, the range of gaming options offers something for all guests. Key hardware for 20 of the 40 gaming stations is provided by Republic of Gamers (ROG), an ASUS sub-brand dedicated to creating the world’s best gaming hardware and software. Each ROG gaming station has a PC with a motherboard from ROG, the award-winning motherboard brand, plus a ROG 2K 240 Hz monitor, a high-resolution ROG headset, an RGB ROG mechanical keyboard, a high-precision ROG mouse, and an ergonomic ROG gaming chair for ultimate comfort.
With 20 leading game titles available to play in the lounge, including Fortnite, League of Legends, Gran Turismo 7, Crash Bandicoot and more, there are options for every taste and preference. Passengers traveling to the region for football action have plenty of options to continue their footie fix with top football matches on hand to keep them immersed in the ‘glorious game’.
Game Space will be open 24/7, so the fun will be non-stop. Food and beverage outlets are also available, making it the perfect place to relax.
Access to Game Space is available to all travelers for a fee. Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport lounge and experience program, also offers game time for their members. Other card membership programs will be available in space soon.
“We are excited to partner with Dubai Airports to bring travelers an innovative new gaming experience at the world’s largest hub,” said Errol McGlothan, co-director of Game Space. “We know that gaming is incredibly popular in the region and Game Space allows travelers to turn their waiting time at the airport into their playing time.
By working with strategic gaming partners such as ASUS, we believe we have a unique partnership to push the boundaries of what the lounge experience can be,” said Frédéric Briest, co-director at Game Space. “We are excited to provide unique and fun moments for novice to veteran gamers transiting from Dubai.”
Eugene Barry, Executive Vice President of Commercial at Dubai Airports, said: “We are delighted to partner with Game Space to launch this new gaming lounge for our global guests, adding an exciting new element to our existing offering of retail, food and hospitality partnerships throughout the airport.”
