[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

As the spooky season kicks into high gear, one gets the urge to load up on bullets and sunscreen and go huntin’ for zombies. Luckily, Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive have just what the doctor ordered: a virtual reality zombie experience in the form of the bright, colorful, and deceptively terrifying Arizona Sunshine — currently available at a whopping 63% off as part of the Steam Halloween Sale!

Built from the ground up to be a superior VR title, Arizona Sunshine drops you into the midst of the zombie apocalypse, tasking you with blasting heads, investigating mines, and keeping the ochre canyons clean of aggressive, brain-munching undead in an intense virtual-reality experience. Enjoy the sunny-splatterfest in even more detail with the recently released enhancement update for the Oculus Quest 2 that includes full ragdoll zombie physics, better-than-ever lush visuals, dynamic lighting and shaders, and of course, cross-platform multiplayer.

Key Features of Arizona Sunshine Include:

  • Get Some (Virtual) Sun: Arizona Sunshine features a lot of blood, guts, bullets, and brains, but it also lets players enjoy the gorgeous landscapes of the American Southwest in beautiful HD graphics


  • Survive Alone, Thrive Together: While there is certainly a romantic appeal to being the lone wolf, making it through the zombie apocalypse alive and well is much more doable with some pals. Grab a buddy for the co-op campaign mode or up to three extra meatsacks in the multiplayer Horde mode on the Oculus Quest.


  • Pistols and Rifles and Shotguns, Oh My!: A buffet of bullet-blasting Zombie extermination tools awaits you with more than 25 weapons, allowing you to cull the herd your way. Keep things Southern by dual-wielding revolvers or stay safe and pop some heads from a distance with a variety of assault and sniper rifles, the choice is yours!


  • Piece by Piece: There’s something inherently satisfying about shooting limbs one-by-one or dissolving a piece of cover with a hail of bullets. Arizona Sunshine provides players with plenty of chances to enjoy corpse mutilation, destructible environments, and full zombie ragdoll physics 

Arizona Sunshine is available for Oculus Quest 2 as well as Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality via Steam. The title is part of the Steam Halloween Sale and is currently available for $14.79 USD, a 63% discount! (Offer ends November 2).
