Come play Arizona Sunshine for LBVR at the VIVE Expo at CES 2018

p>Rotterdam (NL), 8 January 2018: Vertigo Games is pleased to announce the zombie apocalypse is coming to location-based VR (LBVR) with a spin-off version of the hit VR shooter Arizona Sunshine currently in development for VR arcades exclusively.

Arizona Sunshine for LBVR is playable this week at the HTC VIVE Expo at the Wynn’s Alsace Ballroom at CES 2018. Bringing together up to 4 VIVE users in the same physical play space, Arizona Sunshine for LBVR uses the power of real-world movement to bring unrivaled immersion to the virtual zombie apocalypse.

“Arizona Sunshine has consistently topped the list of most played games at VR arcades,” says Richard Stitselaar, Managing Director at Vertigo Games. “We strongly believe Arizona Sunshine will again be a must-play in this new, exciting LBVR space. Who doesn’t want to brave the zombie apocalypse alongside their friends in an even more immersive experience than home VR offers?”

“Vertigo’s forward-looking approach to the arcade business and implementing technology such as the Vive Tracker, have pushed the expectations for VR title forward,” said Daniel O’Brien, GM US, Vive. “We’re excited for this unveil to showcase all that’s possible on Vive.”

Recently unveiled as a Best of Virtual Reality 2017 title on Steam, Arizona Sunshine puts you in the midst of a zombie apocalypse – solo or with up to four survivors.
