Arizona Sunshine is a zombie survival shooter with a voice acted singleplayer campaign and co-op horde mode. We gave it 8.5/10 in our review when it launched, calling it “the best overall zombie shooter we’ve seen yet in VR”. Even today in 2019 this assessment still holds true.

It was first released back in 2016 for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive PC VR systems on the same day as the Oculus Touch controllers. The game had a highly successful launch with $1.4 million in sales in the first month. In June 2017 the company launched it on PlayStation VR, even supporting the PSVR Aim Controller.

Multiple new horde maps have been added for free. In 2018, the company released a paid DLC for the campaign called Dead Man. The DLC is a story based prequel to the original campaign.

Vertigo Games has even taken the franchise beyond the home to VR arcades, with tailor made experiences such as the LB VR edition and Arizona Sunshine: Rampage.

The company hasn’t given any hint as to what the news is about, but the phrase “the zombie apocalypse is spreading!” seems to hint at the game coming to a new platform. This could be support for the upcoming Oculus Quest room scale standalone headset, Valve’s Index PC VR headset, or a new VR arcade platform. We’ll keep a close eye on Vertigo Games tomorrow and keep you informed on whatever they’re announcing.
