Curious about VR? Check out HSBC's Freshers' Stand.



Before you say it, no you're not going to be doing tax returns in Virtual Reality, they actually have a couple of good games, It's all very immersive, and a nice look at something that will probably be the future of gaming, if not society itself.


Firstly, for those of you that like some competition, they have a game called BeatSaber which is an interesting rhythm-based game where you can play against your friends. Secondly, sticking with their environmentally positive theme, there's an outdoor trekking game where you can experience 14 breathtaking views, and even plant some trees and watch them grow. Isn't that cute.




By the way, HSBC are also giving away a 50 Euro Scan gift voucher every day to the student with the highest BeatSaber score. The competition takes place daily between 8am to 12pm from Monday 30th September to Friday 4th October.


Apart from the fun VR stuff, you can also take the opportunity to open your Student Account at the stand itself with the help of HSBC staff guiding you through the process, and telling you everything you need to know about the service. You can also use and download their app and get all your questions answered about how it works. More about this below.
