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 – releasing into the wild on July 17. 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!
1 – 0 FOR THE MACHINES
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.
