Attendees consider LG OLED part of the ‘dream gaming set up'

The Idea

Dream Gaming Setup

A debate that has raged in comment sections and subreddits: what is the dream gaming setup? LG built one themselves to demonstrate that OLED screens can truly compete with monitors in the minds of gamers. LG OLED Unleashed was a fully integrated campaign strategically targeted at Forza Horizon fans, as the stunning landscapes in the game are the perfect demonstration of LG’s OLED technology. Unleashed took Forza fans under the hood, unveiling the new game in all its glory, with playful nods to the features of the franchise such as ‘barn finds’ and piñatas.

Unleashing Forza Horizon 5

The campaign was built around a live event held in November 2021 at Dunsfold Park, better known as the filming location for Top Gear. Lucky winners of a pre-event competition attended an exclusive two-day experience which brought Forza Horizon 5 to life in an authentic way. This included an exclusive play of the game ahead of the global launch, with sessions on Xbox Series X consoles and the latest LG OLED displays. Guests also got their chance to test drive the LG OLED Dream Gaming Setup: an immersive, 4D racing simulator housed in a stunning mirrored cube on the runway.

Ultimate Barn Find

Our audience trusts elite gamers above all else, so we pitted four streamers against each other in a high octane finale to the Unleashed campaign. Tasked with discovering a ‘barn find’ from Forza, Benny Central, Aarav, James Buckley and Vikkstar put their real-life driving skills to the test on the Dunsfold track (hitting some piñatas along the way) before battling it out on Forza Horizon 5 in the LG OLED Dream Gaming Setup.

Tap for next project

Children's Day

LEGO is a long-standing tool for self-expression, creativity, and creation. Childrens’ Day became the perfect opportunity to explore the notion of ‘play’ through the theme 'what's the right way to play?'. It demonstrated the value of both structured and unstructured play with LEGO to parents in nine cities across China – Xi'an, Suzhou, Nanjing, Chongqing, Shenyang, Xiamen, Dongguan, Nanjing and Jiaxing.
