Pistol Whip’s Latest Free Update Is A Mad Max-Inspired Thrill Ride
The Full Throttle update introduces new customizations, additional modifiers, and it’s hardest level yet.
Facebook continued on with its Game Developer Showcase this morning with a slew of exciting announcements for both the Oculus Quest and Rift/Rift S, including a new update for Pistol Whip that introduces a chaotic, Mad Max-inspired level to the mix.
Available now 100% free-of-charge on all Pistol Whip platforms, the Full Throttle Update takes you on an adrenaline-fueled joyride through a post-apocalyptic hellscape straight out of George Miller film. The level begins with you battling your way through waves of increasingly-difficult enemies as you steadily progress through a colorful alleyway.
Then, out of nowhere, all hell breaks lose. You soon find yourself venturing through a massive desert environment filled with flying dune buggies and gravity-defying henchmen, resulting in what could easily be considered the most chaotic Pistol Whip scene to-date.
In addition to this new level, developer Cloudhead Games has also introduced a new line of Tac-Ops pistols to choose from, as well as a handful of new wraps, metals, and sound fx.
Players can also try their hand at two brand new game modifiers: Scavenger and One-and-Done. Scavenger cranks up the difficulty by forcing your to melee enemies in order to reload; One-and-done, on the other hand, strips enemies of their armor, allowing you to one-shot your way through more difficult levels.
To celebrate its launch, Cloudhead is adding Full Throttle to the ongoing Pistol Whip ESL VR League Play Cup. On March 22nd, competitors can duke it out for the chance at winning a brand new Oculus Rift S.
