Last Sunday Microsoft announced the first games and apps that would be available for Windows Mixed Reality branded VR HMDs, which currently only support PC. Among those was the zombie FPS game Arizona Sunshine, a trailer for which you can watch above. Now the game’s developers Jaywalkers Interactive and Vertigo Games have issued the following press release, which interestingly seems to suggest that some of the Windows Mixed Reality VR HMDs that haven’t been revealed yet may be wireless as they mention being able to play on “an untethered headset”:
Arizona Sunshine Brings the Zombie Apocalypse to Windows Mixed Reality
Step into the heat of zombie action with Arizona Sunshine for Windows Mixed Reality
Rotterdam, NL – August 29, 2017: Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive today announced that Arizona Sunshine, a popular VR zombie shooter game, will be a Windows Mixed Reality launch title. This will allow zombie hunters to play on an untethered headset for the first time and experience the world of Arizona Sunshine on the highest resolution headset on the market.
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. Embark on a journey in search of human contact across post-apocalyptic southwestern America 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.
On Windows Mixed Reality, use motion controllers to freely explore Arizona Sunshine’s VR world using teleportation or locomotion movement, and 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.
Arizona Sunshine was released on PC on December 6, 2016 and went on to earn sales of more than $1.4m in its first month of release. It was awarded UploadVR’s VR Game of the Year 2016 and topped sales charts when it released on Sony PlayStation®VR on June 27, 2017.
