The launch of Oculus Quest is only a day away with (hopefully) lots of excited customers looking forward to receiving their headsets. With plenty of videogames and apps set to be available from day one, one of those is Pixel Toys’ new Drop Dead Dual Strike. Confirmed back in April, the studio has recently released details regarding the update to the franchise.
The original Drop Dead arrived for Samsung Gear VR in 2016, followed by Oculus Rift in 2017. For the launch on Oculus Quest the series is getting a major update with Pixel Toys adding dual wielding for the first time. Not only that but players will now have the use of melee weapons to slaughter the undead, with baseball bats, scythes, axes and pitchforks all on offer – they can even bat back projectiles.
Making use of that wireless freedom, Drop Dead Dual Strike will now allow players to dodge incoming attacks, ducking below spitter slime and dodging to the side of rocket attacks. And to increase the content further, there’s a new Horde mode map. Alongside the original horde mode arena, the new The Ultimate Showdown will be even tougher, suitable for solo or co-op gameplay.
The story remains unchanged, with the synopsis explaining: “Set amidst a zombie apocalypse, you’re the last agent alive able to stop Dr Monday and save the world! Slay zombie hordes using an arsenal of Z-shredding weapons, high-tech visor and sackful of insane gadgets. Team up with former CIA operative Billy-Bob and his daughter Celia-Jane as you delve deep into the true madness of Dr Monday’s nefarious schemes for world domination!”
While the release of Drop Dead Dual Strike is timed for the launch of Oculus Quest, if you already own Drop Dead for Oculus Rift then you’ll get all these new additions as a free update. Plus, there’s cross-play support between both headsets and cross-buy support as well – so no need to buy it twice.
Drop Dead Dual Strike will retail for $19.99 USD when it arrives tomorrow. Check out the new trailer below, and for any further updates from Pixel Toys regarding new content, keep reading VRFocus.
