The Zombieland movie series, which so far includes Zombieland and Zombieland: Double Tap, is making its way to virtual reality through Zombieland VR: Headshot Fever. Developed by XR Games, who previously put out The Angry Birds Movie 2 VR: Under Pressure, the title will launch on PlayStation VR at some point later this year — it's making its way to other VR headsets in the spring, meaning we'll have to wait a little bit longer.
Tallahassee, Wichita, Columbus, and Little Rock return as the main characters as they launch a zombie-killing racecourse named Zombieland Invitational in Silicon Valley. Judging by the announcement trailer above, you'll be taking part in that very competition. The game also features a sort of bullet-time mode, where popping off two headshots in a row slows the entire world down to let you boost your combos and get faster times to post on the leaderboard. It'll be dubbed the Adrenaline system.
As part of a press release, XR Games founder and CEO Bobby Thandi explained how excited the team is to be working on the Zombieland IP. "The Zombieland world is a no-nonsense kind of place, and to this end we’ve made one of the purest shooting games for VR. We hand crafted the content, upping replayability, and incorporated mechanics from racing games such as time splits so you know exactly how well you’re doing. It's about practising 'til you're perfect. Your speed and accuracy with each shot is imperative to score the fastest time."
You'll be able to compete with your friends on a global leaderboard, unlock better weapons to improve your loadout and further enhance them with perks, and pop off some headshots in a game "built for VR from the ground up".
