Bad news for people speculating that Arizona Sunshine was going to be announced for Oculus Quest today; it isn’t. The good news? There is new DLC on the way.
Vertigo Games just announced Arizona Sunshine – The Damned DLC. This is supposedly the largest story-based expansion to the VR zombie shooter yet. In it, players will assume the role of a member of a US Special Forces team that must reactive a hydroelectric dam. Expect to shoot your way through more untold numbers of undead. No trailer yet but we do have these new screenshots for you.
More Arizona Sunshine is always a good thing. This was one of the first VR games to deliver a fully structured first-person shooter (FPS) campaign, a feat that has earned it a wealth of sales since launch alongside Oculus Touch. It looks like one of VR’s most popular games just won’t die. Pretty fitting, no?
This is the second piece of story-based DLC the game has enjoyed since its launch in 2016. The first, Dead Man, also added another prequel level. The game has also had several new updates for its survival-based horde mode and a few arcade spin-offs to go with it. One of the latter was announced just last week. Given that the game is nearing three years since launch, though, we’re starting to wonder if and when we’ll see a sequel.
The VR Today. Currently Virtual Reality is growing in popularity and while companies like the Oculus Rift are losing some of their customers because of unpopular marketing practices, other devices, including the HTC Vive are taking the VR stage. Furthermore, with Google Cardboard creating the concept and other companies taking note, Smartphone Virtual Reality Goggles are letting consumers easily enjoy and experience immersive virtual and augmented reality. With huge consumer base, the multiple platforms for development, and the lack of many VR games and experiences, small start-ups as well as huge companies are investing huge amounts of money into the development of content for Virtual Reality, which might very well help VR finally achieve the world-wide recognition it didn’t manage to achieve on the market for years.
Look for The Damned to hit PSVR, Rift, Vive and Windows VR this summer. A final release date and price haven’t yet been announced. Expect the PSVR version to support the headset’s flashy Aim controller, though.
