You didn’t think Capcom could get any bolder and bloodier after last year’s human butchery for the Resident Evil 6 launch, did you? Although this may burst your bubble, Capcom has traversed the dark path once again to deliver you a blood-soaked day by presenting fans with the first blood filled swimming pool.
The pool is 16ft by 32ft large and over one metre in depth, taking in around 55,000 gallons of water, and as MCV reports, is equivalent to the blood of 11,327 people. The pool will be filled with a series of Resident Evil treats for fans brave enough to swim into the deepest parts, which they are able to keep. And if you didn’t think the ‘blood’ water – made with non-staining coloured dye – was enough, you’ll find human torso floats, rows of brains and intestines representing lane markers and even zombie lifeguards to keep a steady eye out.
The event, which is scheduled to take place on May 25 and 26 in London’s Jupiter Wharf, is to mark the release of Resident Evil Revelations on May 24 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC – plus, it’s also entirely free to the public. However, there are only 100 tickets on offer, so make sure you grab yours here on May 20, when tickets go on sale to the general public. The pool is only open to those aged 16 and above, with under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult.
In support of the event, Capcom’s UK PR Manager Adam Merrett, said:
“Capcom are thrilled to able to create the world’s first blood swimming pool. Zombies have been kept very busy lately doing a variety of PR stunts, so rather than do the expected, we wanted to give them some time off for canal side relaxation in London.
“To non-zombies, the swimming pool will be shocking, gory and an incredibly disturbing experience – the perfect way to show that survival horror is back with a bang for Resident Evil Revelations.”
