Last week saw developer Mastiff launch survival horror Home Sweet Home for PlayStation VR. This week the studio has another virtual reality (VR) compatible title ready to launch for the headset, an arcade shooter called Heavy Fire: Red Shadow.
The next installment of the Heavy Fire series and the first to offer VR support, Heavy Fire: Red Shadow is a stationary wave-based shooter with players taking control of a gun emplacement.
Set in a future where tensions between North Korea and the United States have reached breaking point, players find themselves in the tattered combat boots of Sgt. Will, who narrowly survived a North Korean missile attack on Guam designed to knock out its defenses, and now finds himself almost single-handedly trying to repulse a large-scale North Korean raid.
Sat behind a turret-mounted machine gun and rocket launcher combo, players need to mow down enemies across an eight stage Campaign mode, or fight non-stop in Endless Mode as hostiles attack for all angles. Also at their disposal is the ability to call in supply drops and support from elite infantry troops, fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, and more.
As players progress they can unlock more than 30 Field Promotions, earning power-ups to upgrade and customise their machine gun, rocket launcher, health, and support skills.
Due to launch both digitally and physically on 16th October, players who download the PlayStation 4 demo and pre-order the videogame will receive a special PS4 system theme. The physical edition of Heavy Fire: Red Shadow, which includes the base game and PlayStation VR mode, will be available exclusively at Walmart stores across North America. The title is available now to pre-order on PlayStation Store for $19.99 USD. For any further updates from Mastiff regarding its VR compatible titles, keep reading VRFocus.
