Arizona Sunshine is a great game that earned our VR Game of the Year honors for 2016. And back at CES 2017 in January of this year we spotted the new Undead Valley content on display and had the chance to speak with Vertigo Games representatives about the upcoming update. Originally slated for February, the update is just now landing in mid-April, but it’s totally free to download and play starting today.
Instead of being a brand new game mode, this is instead a new map for the game’s cooperative Horde mode. In that game mode, players fight side-by-side against ongoing waves of zombies to try and survive for as long as possible, wisely rationing their limited supplies and weapons. Last month a different new map for the mode was released, pitting players against the undead through the core campaign’s scariest area: the mine. It’s pitch black and crawling with zombies, making it a harrowing experience.
Undead Valley is something a bit different then. It’s not only a brand new area that wasn’t in the game previously, but it also features brand new objectives to mix up the tedium of endless waves. “This time players will find the key to survival above all else is to keep moving and take full advantage of the map’s indoor and outdoor areas as well as the verticality it adds to Horde mode,” says a press release provided to UploadVR. “Players will need to gradually expand their playground by retrieving keys to locked doors and blowing up obstacles in their way in search for more weapons, hidden ammo spots and tactical positions.”
You can check out Arizona Sunshine on Steam with support for both Oculus Rift with Touch and the HTC Vive, as well as on Oculus Home for Rift. What do you think of this latest update? Will you be returning to the sun-scorched deserts again to fight off new hordes of zombies? Let us know in the comments below!
