Hey all, Trevor from Vertigo Games here. The last few weeks have been super exciting and hard work for us, but we’re thrilled that Arizona Sunshine will finally make its PlayStation VR debut tomorrow!

To thank you all for your amazing support, we’re celebrating the North American launch with a limited Arizona Sunshine Launch Edition which includes both the game and an exclusive Arizona Sunshine PS4 theme at 10% off for everyone who joins the VR zombie apocalypse during our launch week!

One of the things I’m really excited about is how far we’ve taken support for the PS VR Aim controller over the past couple of months. While it was already pretty awesome to play the game with it to begin with, we felt the game lacked proper support for it. The solution? We created an entire, additional campaign mode in which you need to survive with 13 newly added two-handed weapons at your disposal.

Arizona Sunshine is all about VR shooting, so it has been our top priority to get this absolutely right. Up until even last week we have been tweaking gun configurations to make it feel really intuitive. The two-handed guns have received multiple passes on realism and control comfort (Honestly, I could dedicate a whole post to this alone!).

What we found is that there is no golden rule in the way VR games should be played — everyone is different. That’s why we made sure you’re going to be armed with a bunch of settings that will enable you to tweak the VR controls to your liking. Go with your controller of choice, choose between teleporting or walking locomotion and smooth or segmented rotation, adjust controller-gun offsets, and use the left-handed setting if you are a lefty!

Lastly, I can share some good news for all the PS4 Pro players out there. You can expect Arizona Sunshine to look its very best on your console, as we’ve visually enhanced the game to take full advantage of its power. We’ve adjusted the graphic settings dynamically for each area to maintain a high frame rate while pushing the game’s visual quality to its limit. Think of anti-aliasing, render-scale, fog density, and draw distance. Don’t expect any gameplay changes though, because that wouldn’t be fair to non-PS4 Pro players when you’re all playing together in one of the game’s multiplayer modes.

I truly hope you will enjoy the game as much as we do! Now I’m finally off to my cave to get some sleep…

Welcome to Arizona Sunshine!

    Though I’m incredibly excited to play this, is there a chance that the game will release via retail? I was pretty bummed to find out that Job Simulator got a physcial edition just a week after I bought it in the PS Store… Trying to avoid feeling that way again. Lol.

    Soooo hyped for this! Crazy props to you gents for supporting the Aim Controller! Rreally looking forward to the co-op!

  • Ok, so besides PSVR Aim Controller, which controllers can I play the game with: DS4 and PSMove (dual or single)?

    Congrats on the release. Can’t wait to finally play it!

    This game is F’N amazing on VR. It’s really interesting cause as a normal 2-d platform game, it wouldn’t seem to be as great, but something about it, in a multiplayer (couch co-op) makes it fun as hell. I think I’m getting PS VR for this game.

  • YES! Very excited to try this with the Aim controller.

  • HYPE!!!!Getting it asap tomorrow, will play with the Aim controller AND two ps moves!

  • Gonna buy it right now. Thanks much for the additional campaign for Aim. Excellent news.

  • No pre order. Damn.

  • More games for Aim Controller is a good thing and I like reading that they made dual-hand weapons specifically with the Aim Controller in mind. Still, will need to wait on a few reviews before I get this because don’t care about mindlessly shooting zombies.

  • Wow i can die in this game while Dying from the Heat out here in the real Arizona Sunshine. Woot woot

  • All of the gameplay I’ve seen so far, shows only teleporting to a spot….Can you walk around freely in full Motion? Also, how much is it?

  • Nice! This looks like fun. Thanks for Aim support!

  • This game looks really interesting and I am happy they put so much work in this game with the different controller options and movement options. I hope move devs put this much effort in their vr options.great work Vertigo games.

  • Is it possible to play couch coop? So one guy playes with Vr and the other with a normal controller on the tv screen^^

  • White_JackaL

    Hi from real Arizona, it’s 130° here and we really do have a military plan for zombies here.

  • Silent_Shadow

    If your going to make games with the Aim Controller in mind, please make sure the Aim Controller is available for purchasing at retail price.

    Right now you can only get it with the Farpoint Bundle from a scalper on eBay / Amazon for at least DOUBLE THE PRICE.

    I will never support a game developer that creates a shortage of an item to create business for ebay / Amazon scalpers whose only intention is to rip off Consumers.

    This game and Farpoint on PSN specify Dual shock and Aim Controller. It does not specify Move Controller support.
    I will be saving my money for Doom VR. That game on PSN specifies Move Controller support.

    Got to play for about 15 minutes before work today, just enough to tease me and make me not wanna go to work.

  • BallinShark

    I can’t wait to get it! The only thing that sucks though is that the aim controller is sold out everywhere.

  • When are the Aim controllers going to be restocked? Any official word from Sony?
