Sony Pictures Virtual Reality and British development studio XR Games have unveiled "Zombieland: Headshot Fever," a VR shooter game set within that film's universe.
Zombieland: Headshot Fever tasks players with joining Columbus, played by Jesse Eisenberg in Ruben Fleischer's 2009 film; Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock as they take on the undead amid a zombie-killing racecourse. The game is inspired by 1990s' arcade-style light-gun shooting and modern racing titles, and will, as the companies describe, retain the humor and action of Zombieland and its sequel, Double Tap.
The game will feature a weapon slate with shotguns, revolvers and assault rifles, as well as global leaderboards where players can challenge their friends.
An adrenaline system will come into play when users achieve two headshots in a row, making the world suddenly become slow.
Founded in 2017, XR Games is headquartered in Leeds, England. In 2019, the company released Angry Birds Under Pressure VR, based on the hit animated franchise.
Zombieland: Headshot Universe will release this Spring on platforms including Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift, then later for PlayStation VR.
