What could possibly be more fun than killing zombies? How about killing hordes of VR zombies? If shooting the walking dead happens to be something that floats your proverbial boat and you’re lucky enough to own an Oculus Rift you can do just this in Pixel Toy’s new release Drop Dead. If you hop into the Oculus store you’ll find the game is now available for $19.99 and you can go and get your undead blasting fix from there.
Drop Dead fully supports the Oculus Touch and will see you battling your way through 40 single-player story missions in which you will be using a variety of weapons and gadgets. With said implements of destruction you’ll go out on a B-movie style, sci-fi horror, time traveling, dead people killing rampage; finding yourself dismembering bad guys and racking up massive combos as you go. In addition to the single player mode the game also offers a co-operative horde mode and score attack competitive multi-player for up to four players with their own cutomised Oculus avatars.
The title is also receiving a free update on Gear VR powered by Oculus which will contain new original content released with the Oculus Rift edition of the game. This update will include new story missions, gameplay, boss encounters and weapons.
It has to be said that the whole zombie trope never seems to get old but what is nice to see is that it doesn’t always have to be too gritty and serious. For people looking for something a bit more humourous and light hearted to play either alone or with friends, or just something new to add to their VR libraries, this could definitely be an interesting way to go.
