Back in March 2015 VRFocus reported on the launch of a Steam Greenlight campaign for City Z, a new top-down shooter that supports virtual reality (VR) from indie studio Little Cloud Games. Now, a month and a half on from that campaign’s launch, the developer has been approved on Steam Greenlight, meaning it will be available for sale on Valve’s digital PC store come full release. Better yet, the studio has also revealed a release window for the title. As it turns out, fans won’t have too much longer to wait.
City Z is set to launch in July 2015 with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). The title features randomly generated environments that will reset with every new game. Players will trawl through these areas, fending off waves of zombies. Every new game starts players off in a new city with a different main character, story and even objective, ranging from saving a certain amount of civilians to taking down boss characters. These stories are said to take around an hour to complete each time.
The title event uses different times and dates to offer varying weather conditions with each playthrough. A multiplayer co-op mode is also set to feature, as are various player classes and a range of weapons that mainly include stand firearms.
VRFocus will continue to follow City Z, reporting back with any further updates on the title.
