Arizona Sunshine

Vertigo Games has announced that they’ll be brining Arizona Sunshine to PlayStation VR in June. The game’s release will coincide with the launch of the just announced PS VR Aim Controller.

“Step into the Heat of Zombie Action”

Arizona Sunshine initially launched on PC at the end of 2016. “Built from the ground up for VR”, Vertigo is now ready to release that experience on PlayStation VR. Here’s a breakdown:

“Built from the ground up for VR, Arizona Sunshine is a full-feature game that puts you in the middle of a zombie apocalypse as if you were there. Explore post-apocalyptic southwestern America in a desperate search for human contact in campaign mode, join forces with a friend in co-op multiplayer, or jump into the endless multiplayer Horde mode for up to 4 players.”

And here’s some information on the game’s mechanics:

“On PlayStation VR, use the DualShock 4 controller to freely explore Arizona Sunshine‘s VR world using teleportation or locomotion movement, and opt for optimal immersion with the new PS VR Aim controller or the PlayStation Move motion controllers to handle your weapons, gear and consumables with real-life movements: anticipate attacks, manage ammo and aim down the sights to blast your enemies to undead pieces.”

Lead Tech at Vertigo Games, Trevor Blom, describes the overall experience as follows:

“For those of you who haven’t heard of Arizona Sunshine before, it’s a VR shooter that quite literally puts you in the heat of a whole load of zombie action. You get to step into our protagonist’s shoes on a quest to find other survivors across the blistering heat of the post-apocalyptic Arizona desert, all the while battling zombies with whatever gear, ammo, and consumables you loot from your undead enemies or find on your way.”

Finally, to see the game in action, here is the official trailer for Arizona Sunshine:

And finally, finally – here is a breakdown of how the PS VR Aim Controller came about through its development diary:

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
