Remember HBO’s wonderfully crafted Westworld series? Well, there’s a new trailer for its second season. If you haven’t watched the first season, beware; there are a few spoilers here.
Westworld Easter eggs
The Westworld trailer shows us what happened to the amusement park after the end of the first season. The best part – it’s loaded with Easter eggs.
It gets weirder. If you do the following:
- Go to delosincorporated.com
- Click “LOGIN”
- Enter “XOMEGACH” (it’s the username shown at the end of the Delos video clip)
You’ll visit another part of the site. And with it, more Easter eggs, which you need to see for yourself. In other words, they’re all part of HBO’s sneaky viral marketing for the show.
But the part we’re most excited about? Shogun World, which is another part of the amusement park. As its name suggests, it’s themed after ancient Japan where samurai (and probably ninjas) roam.
According to Westworld’s viral marketing website for Delos Destinations, Shogun World is described as such:
“For those for whom Westworld is not enough, the true connoisseur of gore can indulge their fantasies with the slash of a katana. Modeled after Japan’s Edo period, Shogun World offers a chance for guests to embrace their inner warrior, in a landscape of highest beauty and darkest horror. Let your true self take shape in the land where self-discovery is an art form.”
