“In this preview, you’ll get to step into Seezelslak’s cantina, where you encounter Mubo and Seezelslak himself. There you can test your skills with Repulsor Darts and play the chromarimba. For those looking for more adventure, head to the wilds of Batuu, beyond Black Spire Outpost, where you face off against the Guavian Death Gang,” Meta described on its website.

Fans who complete the experience will also receive giveaways and have the ability to purchase a Meta Quest 2 onsite.

For those guests participated in the experience on May 4, they were able to receive an exclusive poster featuring the Guavian Death Gang cell operating on Batuu and their merciless leader, Tara Rashin.
