In the run up to Arizona Sunshine’s launch next week for HTC Vive and Oculus Touch, Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive have been heavily promoting the title with numerous videos and screenshots. In October the studios released a downloadable virtual reality (VR) video for the two head-mounted displays (HMDs), and for gamers interested in seeing more ahead of launch now there’s another.
Called ‘Runner’ the video goes for a far more tense, horror feel than previous instalments. Taking place solely at night, there’s no combat or guns to be seen, just the player running through the night trying to out wit and out manoeuvre the hordes of the undead lurking in the dark. This trailer goes for a far more cinematic feel, reminiscent of any number of zombie movies from the past few decades.
You can checkout a 360-degree version of the video below, or head to the Arizona Sunshine website to download it for Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
The videogame will be priced at $39.99 USD/£29.99 GBP, when it launches on 6th, December 2016. Currently it’s available for pre-order with a 15 percent discount via Steam for HTC Vive and Humble Bundle for Oculus Touch. Pre-orders will also receive an Arizona Sunshine compositor image for their headsets, a desktop background image, and concept art from the game.
Arizona Sunshine, as the name suggests, takes place across a series of huge south western American environments, including blistering-hot deserts, treacherous canyons and deep, dark mines. Players will have over 25 different weapons to choose from, with both single-player and co-op multiplayer modes available.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Arizona Sunshine, reporting back with any further announcements.
