Arizona Sunshine is an incredible virtual reality (VR) experience for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. It's become incredibly popular over the past few months, and many people at Mobile Nations even call it the best VR game to date.

Today, Vertigo Games and Jaywalkers Interactive released The Damned expansion for the title. It's an all-new standalone chapter and the largest Arizona Sunshine mission to date. It's currently available for $5 on all platforms.

Preceding the events of Arizona Sunshine and Dead Man, players get to crawl into the skin of an all-new protagonist named Liam. As one of the few zombie apocalypse survivors, he has agreed to assist a team of special forces on a daunting mission. As the team sets out, terrifying events unfold without warning that leaves the player to complete their objective on their own, or with a friend in co-op.

If you haven't played Arizona Sunshine and own a VR device, you should check it out. You can purchase it for $40 on Windows Mixed Reality. Keep in mind that the title is mostly a single-player experience and doesn't feature any competitive multiplayer modes from what it seems.

  • These guys didn't care to update the game in its whole life and now they do it to milk money from us with a DLC? Come on, man. If you want a glass half full, the fact that they considered releasing this at all is a positive sign for the WMR ecosystem. I wasn't even expecting any update for this game. In fact, bringing the issue to the publisher, I asked for a Steam key. Unlike other developers who recognize they have unfairly abandoned the WMR version, they refused. So they lost the benefit of the doubt with me.
  • Maybe they should first fix the original game so we don't get stuck in the second level before trying to sell us more contents? See Feedback Hub issue : https://aka.ms/AA66beo
