Vertigo Games Announces Room-Scale VR Zombie Shooter Arizona Sunshine for HTC Vive
For the first time ever, step into the midst of a zombie apocalypse in room-scale VR and with motion-controlled weapon handling
Dutch independent developers Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive today unveil their upcoming room-scale VR title Arizona Sunshine, a fast-paced zombie shooter that will have players experience the heat of a zombie apocalypse like never before on HTC Vive, the revolutionary VR headset that was developed in conjunction with Valve.
Arizona Sunshine has you step into the midst of a zombie apocalypse as if you were really there, and bash, slash and explode your way through hordes of undead close enough to touch. Battle for survival across a blistering hot, post-apocalyptic Arizona using motion-controlled weapon handling that will have you anticipate attacks, carefully manage your ammo and consumables, and aim down the sights as if your life was on the line, bringing unprecedented realism to zombie shooting.
When you hear a flash of a human voice on the radio, your hopes and beliefs are confirmed – there are still survivors out in the blistering heat of the post apocalyptic Grand Canyon state! Arizona Sunshine poses a two-fold battle for survival in a VR zombie apocalypse in which players need to navigate both the hordes of zombies coming for their brains and the scorching heat in their desperate search for human contact.
Currently in joint development by Vertigo Games, creators of VR titles Skyworld and World of Diving, and Jaywalkers Interactive, creators of Kick & Fennick and Blue Marble, Arizona Sunshine is scheduled for release on Steam for HTC Vive in late 2015.
