In the mood to stop a machine uprising dead in its tracks?
The action-packed VR first-person shooter Naked Sun is on a collision course with HTC Vive/SteamVR and Oculus – The game is releasing into the wild on July 17 via Steam. According to UK-based developer Door Z, the PSVR version will be released in late August.
If you’ve found previous VR shooters to be tiresome or nausea-inducing, check out Naked Sun. The game’s stunning visuals – rendered over a 180-degree field of action – are perfect for devices without room scale. You’ll also avoid motion sickness altogether.
Naked Sun places you on a futuristic cargo train bound for the Mexico City arcology (once the global capital) on a mission to bring the city’s automated defense systems down. Retaking Mexico City is the first step – and the only way – to bring humanity back from the brink.
If you enjoy shooting things in VR, you’re in for a treat: There are plenty of androids and end-level bosses to defeat … assuming you survive the ride, that is!
At the start of the 23rd century, humans finally lost the Earth to artificial intelligence. Machines turned against their creators as every android was updated with a new prime directive: Eliminate all humans. Abandoned cities, high radiation levels, and the constant android threat has pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. A handful of survivors hide in the Deadlands – ruins of ancient cities destroyed by nuclear wars – and are doggedly fighting back. However, the enemy is stronger – and the only way humans can survive is to attack.
