Vertigo Games showed off more of its upcoming zombie-slaying adventure Arizona Sunshine 2 in a new Gameplay Showcase today, featuring an extended look at the single-player campaign, co-op mode, and a first look at some new gameplay mechanics.

Update (11AM ET): In the deep dive video we get a closer look at Arizona Sunshine 2’s single-player campaign, which heavily features your four-legged pal Buddy to help you take down zombies, solve puzzles, and work as an extra inventory slot. Buddy can be commanded to move to specific places and attack targets, definitely making it feel like the creators have taken some cues from Bethesda’s Fallout 4. Thankfully, Buddy is also there for co-op too.

We also got a look at a number of weapons, all of which feature unique manual reloads, which ought to keep realism high as you scramble to pop in a fresh mag. Melee weapons, like machetes, are also present, although they can degrade as you use them, meaning you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for  tools, items for crafting, ammo and read-to-eat food to keep your health up.

Additionally, the studio announced Arizona Sunshine 2 will feature full cross-platform multiplayer functionality, a two-player co-op campaign mode, an endless Horde mode for up to four players, and more. The studio also has plans for post-launch support, including three additional Horde mode maps to be released during Year One. More details are said to arrive at a later date.

Check out the full 15-minute video below:

Original Article (5AM ET): Arizona Sunshine 2 is nearly here, launching on PSVR 2, Quest and SteamVR headsets December 7th.

Vertigo Games will also be holding Q&A sessions across Reddit, including r/PSVR and r/OculusQuest, which should hopefully answer some of the top burning questions, such as whether we’ll see native Quest 3 footage before release, and how it might handle cross-play co-op.

The livestream kicking off today, November 17th at 8AM PT (local time here). You can tune in on YouTube and Steam.

    This company’s games are against the American Civil Disability Act and are going to lose against a class action suit for discrimination for inciting violence against the disabled!

    • J.C.

      Uh…what?

    • Terendir

      Lets be honest: Considering the shitshow going on in America, as a European I think that all americans are having a disability, in one way or another.

      • NL_VR

        Haha true that.
        Biggest “i am offended” country in the world.

        • Mike

          Clearly you guys have never been to America. The fact is, it’s only a very vocal minority and mostly gen Z. Most of America is nothing like what is portrayed in the leftist media these days. They are selling a narrative that isn’t reality. You guys should pray for America. If there was no America, oppressive and totalitarian governments the world over would eat your lunch. what if America decided it was no longer in her best interest to fund or be part of NATO anymore? then what would you do? America helped save Europe from the nazis attempt to enslave all of Europe and maybe even the world in WWII at the cost of hundreds of thousands of young men. America later was largely responsible for freeing and uniting Germany when we won the cold war and created the catalyst for the fall of the berlin wall. take a moment and consider this and perhaps try being thankful for America.

            It’s that thinking that has America in the situation it’s in now. Hubris to think you can rob poor countries while policing others is outstanding. This is the other end of that parabolic arch.

          • kool

            Naw bro America is in a bit of a fog. I thought that was normal til I traveled anywhere else.

          • NL_VR

            Late answer I have not visited America, but I hope I will some day.
            I dont follow “leftist” media from USA I just se all clips in different flows how people behave against each other

      How

  • I really hate this advertising logo image. It doesn’t look like fun, it looks like a dirty, fat man has a grenade in his mouth and watching it makes me uncomfortable. It doesn’t even look like a Zombie.
    Having said that, I had great fun with AS1 and its DLCs, so there is that. I just wished they would use a different advertising to not gross out the whole world when seeing this but thats probably intended….

    • CrusaderCaracal

      Looks like you

    • CrusaderCaracal

      Shut up vr furry nobody wants you here

      • Ah, the fun guy at parties. I see…

  • Gonzax

    Hopefully longer than the first one.

  • eadVrim

    Is it optimized for the Quest 3 or similar to Quest 2 version?

  • Ender772

    whenever i have a zombie itch to scratchi play saints and sinners walking dead…its wave mode has a lot of replayability and lets you move around a whole level while doing it…key word is replay-ability….if there is none in this game it has no chance
