Due to launch later this year for Oculus Touch and HTC Vive is zombie first-person shooter (FPS) Arizona Sunshine. In development by Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive, the teams have been releasing snippets of info on the title for awhile now. Today sees the debut of a brand new virtual reality (VR) trailer, enabling fans to get a better look than ever before at the project.
The trailer takes viewers down the zombie infested highway that’s been shown in several screenshots previously. This time though the road is filled with the undead, crawling their way out of the mangled remains of cars or stumbling along, all in slow motion.
There are a couple of ways to watch the video. It’s shown below as a 360-degree version, with panning controlled with a keyboard or mouse. Or it can be viewed through the YouTube app on a smartphone with a compatible head-mounted display (HMD) like Google Cardboard. But for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners, they can download the trailer to their computer to watch via their headset. Simply head to the Arizona Sunshine website for the download link.
Arizona Sunshine has been built specifically for VR HMDs. Using motion controllers, players will be able to handle, fire, and reload over 25 different weapons with real-life movements. As the name suggests the videogame is set in Arizona, with players able to explore a series of huge southwestern American environments, including blistering-hot deserts, treacherous canyons and deep, dark mines.
It features both single-player and co-op multiplayer modes, with a campaign mode built in bite-sized chunks form a full narrative, gamers will be able to jump in for a short session or stay for the entire campaign. Whilst multiplayer features a co-op campaign mode and a Horde mode for up to four players.
A closed beta will also begin in November for those that have subscribed to the newsletter, and there’s still time if you’re interested.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Arizona Sunshine, reporting back with any further announcements.
