Developer Sigtrap Games has announced that shooter Sublevel Zero will be receiving a large update on PC, Mac and Linux to upgrade the title to the expansion Sublevel Zero Redux; an update which will fully implement virtual reality (VR) support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Sublevel Zero is a space shooter where the player takes command of a gunship with a mission to loot other ships and craft technology. A vast underground facility is available to explore and fight through, with procedurally-generated environments rendered in zero gravity for a full 6DoF experience. Items available to unlock such as blueprints, levels and more powerful enemies to face in subsequent playthroughs.
The title will receive a fully remastered campaign, along with new enemies and unlocks and a hidden weapon that dedicated players will be able to find. Difficulty settings have been revamped to allow experienced players more of a challenge. An extra 70 procedurally generated rooms have been added, along with more enemy types and elite enemies for an extra challenge.
Lead artist Gary Lloyd said in a statement: “We’re bringing all the new content, features and extras from the console version back to PC, Mac and Linux, absolutely free, to say thank you to all our dedicated fans. And we’re really excited to be releasing VR support!”
“We created the first outline of Sublevel Zero at a game jam, as a love letter to games we grew up with like Descent and Forsaken. Since then an amazing community has formed around the game, and we’re so pleased to be able to bring back the console content for free as a thank you to the gamers who have supported us all the way,” added lead programmer Dr Luke Thompson.
Sublevel Zero Redux will launch on the Oculus Store on 13th July 2017 along with the update, which will be available through Steam, GOG and Humble for both existing Sublevel Zero players and new players. The price will remain at $14.99 (USD).
