The action-packed VR shooter Naked Sun has launched on SteamVR. Players take on the role of “Blackbird” – the first successful human-machine hybrid – in this intense VR shooter set aboard a futuristic cargo train on a non-stop ride to oblivion.
Created by UK developer Door Z, Naked Sun’s visuals, rendered over a 180-degree field of action are perfect for devices without room scale. Placing the game’s protagonist on a moving train has the added benefit of avoiding motion sickness altogether – a first for VR first-person shooters.
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!
Your mission: Intercept a cargo train bound for Mexico City (once the global capital) to kill the city’s defense systems. Once inside, your goal is to disable the mainframe in control of the planet. Getting Mexico City back is the only way to turn the tide of war and save countless human lives.
Naked Sun is now available on Steam for $11.19 (a 30% discount). The game will return to its original price of $15.99 on July 24 – one week after launch. Naked Sun will also be available on the Oculus Store and PlayStation Store (PSVR) in August.
