Black Ops House


The ‘world’s darkest’ room covered in ultra-dark Vantablack VBx2 coating – Call of Duty fans experience Black Ops 4 within an actual blackout.


To mark the global launch of Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4, Activision commissioned a one-of-a-kind architectural experience open exclusively to influencers and the media. In a world first, Vantablack VBx2 was used to coat every internal and external wall of a unique gaming space dubbed the Black Ops House.


The Black Ops House, designed by the award-winning London design studio - Asif Khan - saw gamers first walk a 40 metre-long ‘pier’ creating the sense of walking into a pitch-black void. Sliding doors opened to reveal a PlayStation4 Pro and monitor, immersing the player in a unique gameplay experience.


Special guests including football star Dele Alli and video game influencers were invited over a two-day press event to play Black Ops 4 in the blackest room in the world and to experience the surreal effect of infinite blackness. This one-of-a-kind gaming experience raised the excitement of gameplay to a whole new level.
