Arizona Sunshine: Rampage is Nomadic’s Latest Location-Based VR Experience
Vertigo Games’ Arizona Sunshine has become one of the most recognisable franchises in the virtual reality (VR), thanks to the core title being available for most headsets alongside the studios own Arizona Sunshine – LB VR Edition. Which is why Nomadic had great success with its first title based on the series Arizona Sunshine: Contagion Z. Today, Nomadic has returned to announce a brand-new sequel in the zombie universe: Arizona Sunshine: Rampage.
Arizona Sunshine: Rampage is a mixed reality (MR) style experience in a similar vein to The VOID, where players don VR headsets to put them in digital worlds, but there are certain sections to the experience that can be physically interacted with, such as pulling levers for example.
In the videogame, guests are tasked with re-entering a zombie-infested refinery, at night, through the building’s sewer system. Once inside, they have to destroy all of the remaining infected creatures and remnants of a contaminated cure that has accelerated the outbreak.
“From the beginning we’ve experienced a tremendous outpouring of support from the Orlando area,” said Doug Griffin, CEO and Founder, Nomadic in a statement. “To go from newcomer to a Top 3 location on TripAdvisor in just months is unprecedented and we wanted to pay back the community by giving access to amazing new content.”
“All of the new elements will continue to showcase what the world of mixed reality can offer,” Griffin adds. “People who visit Nomadic are seeing the future of both virtual reality and location-based attractions. Our team works to achieve a level of psychological ‘buy-in’ that simply isn’t possible to have at home. These are the most deeply immersive, tactile, and realistic virtual reality experiences ever developed, and now we are adding to the replay-ability in many new and innovative ways.”
Currently, Nomadic has one location in Orlando, Florida, with Arizona Sunshine: Rampage expected to arrive late Spring 2019. The company also has plans to open venues in California and Las Vegas in the works, with further US and then international locations to come.
