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.
iGlasses. While today Apple is infamous for their use of “i” in their products, they weren’t the first ones to come up with the idea. In the 1990s, a company known as Virtual I/O came up with a headset that was capable of color 3D stereoscopic vision, as well as head tracking. Known as iGlasses, the device had a price tag of just under $1000. While the glasses were fully capable of delivering an immersive experience, they didn’t truly ignite the consumer market.
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.
