For those zombie lovers out there, Arizona Sunshine by Vertigo Games and Jaywwalkers Interactive has become one of the best first-person shooters (FPS) when it comes to surviving the undead in virtual reality (VR), offering a single-player campaign as well as a multiplayer Horde mode. Today, the developers have announced some new DLC for the adventure, adding the first campaign expansion Dead Man.
The Arizona Sunshine – Dead Man DLC is a prequel to the main single-player missions, taking place in the final days before the apocalypse. Players will be dropped into an infested US missile base where they have to lead a desperate attempt by US Army Special Forces to contain the expanding zombie outbreak. It’s up to the players squad to clear the base and launch a missile vital to stopping the spread of zombies in the southern US states.
That’s not all in the DLC. It’ll include three new guns, an automatic submachine gun, two-handed shotgun and a tactical handgun. There will be six new achievements/trophies to unlock plus several character customisation options.
The DLC will be playable for the first time on Valve’s VR booth at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2018 in San Francisco 2018, prior to its expected launch for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets for $2,49 USD / €2,49 EUR in Spring 2018.
Vertigo Games will be at GDC 2018 in force this year. Not only will it have the Arizona Sunshine – Dead Man DLC at Valve’s booth, over at the OptiTrack booth the companies will be showcasing Arizona Sunshine LB VR Edition, specifically for location-based enterprise solutions, demoing OptiTrack Active, HP Omen backpacks, Oculus Rift’s, and Striker weapons.
