Zombie Shooter Drop Dead Crawls onto Gear VR

If you love a bit of Halloween fun and are waiting to scare trick or treaters in a few days, to pass the time you might want to tryout zombie shooter Drop Dead which has now arrived for Samsung Gear VR this week.

Created by Pixel Toys, Drop Dead was announced back in June at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 with only a few details being unveiled. Now there’s a new trailer to checkout and some more gameplay details.

Drop Dead is a first-person shooter which features both single-player and multiplayer modes. A tongue-in-cheek horror adventure, players have 13 missions to work through filled with zombies of all shapes and sizes. Players will be tooled up with all sorts of weapons, including pistols, machine guns, lasers and everybody’s favourite undead head remover, the shotgun. And gamers don’t have to go it alone as there’s a real-time multiplayer for up to four people.

“As both creators and players, Gear VR’s ability to take us to new worlds with comfort and convenience has been incredibly exciting,” said Andy Wafer, CEO at Pixel Toys. “Drop Dead takes full advantage of Gear VR’s cutting-edge design to deliver an experience unlike anything else on the platform for hardcore and casual gamers to enjoy alone or together.”

Pixel Toys is working on two additional chapters of single-player content, expected to arrive as free updates later this year, and an Oculus Rift version is planned.

Currently there’s a limited time 20 percent discount available until 1st November. This means Drop Dead is currently $7.99 USD/£5.99 GBP for the next few days.
