It’s the time of year when retailers go discount crazy, reducing swathes of products in price to make consumers spend their money in the run up to Christmas. The virtual reality (VR) industry in no different with HTC Vive getting a $100 USD/£100 GBP discount along with several Viveport titles. Whilst it’s unlikely you’ll see any discounts off Google’s newly launched Daydream View head-mounted display (HMD), Big Red Button Entertainment has confirmed its shooter The Arcslinger will be on sale.
The Arcslinger only launched latest week, putting players into a sci-fi western universe. A gallery style shooter where players have to defend themselves from waves of enemies, The Arcslinger challenges them to become master gun slingers across 15 rogue-like levels.
Through the campaign are helped along the way through the collection of Arcs, which in turn are used to upgrade the main weapon Angleheart, an all powerful pistol. Arcs allow new features which include the explosive Pyro Blast, the time changing Time Warp, the Lightning Rod to add that extra spark to your bullets, as well as defensive abilities such as the Shield Wall.
While some Black Friday sales start tomorrow and go all the way through to Cyber Monday, The Arcslinger looks to be a one day only deal. So tomorrow the price will drop from $7.99, down to $4.99.
Big Red Button Entertainment has also updated the VR title adding a continue feature due to strong demand from fans. VRFocus will continue its coverage of The Arcslinger and Big Red Button Entertainment, reporting back with any new updates.
