Experience the most natural way to move in Arizona Sunshine
Arizona Sunshine is focused around a Zombie Apocalypse, where players have to gun down huge waves of zombies. The title published by Vertigo Games is one of the best experiences in Virtual Reality, and shows what this technology can offer in the realm of gaming. As a VR title supported by Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, one of the most important features in the game is the possibility of freely moving in the 3D environment, which gives players a sense of how big, and unique the game world is.
Without the 3dRudder
While Arizona Sunshine is exclusively built for VR from the ground up, it is also true that playing the game with hand controllers does not do justice to it.
Arizona Sunshine offers players a huge, vibrant world that cannot be fully explored as players would do in real life.
Moving in the game is powered through a basic and a thumbstick touchpad locomotion system, which allows players to teleport near a selected point.
With the 3dRudder
Using the 3dRudder in VR completely changes the way games are played, and it is something fans of Arizona Sunshine will appreciate from the first minute into the action.
Gone are the scripted and unrealistic movements that come from teleporting in VR; 3dRudder allows players to move like they have never done before.
Players can push with theirs toes or heels to move forward or backward, tilt to the left or right to move sideways, rotate to turn around and apply an opposite pressure with their toes & heels to go up or down.
The feeling is natural, smooth and surprisingly intuitive, since, it only takes players 20 seconds to learn the basic movements provided by the foot controller.
Using your feet has been known to be the easiest way to move around in everyday’s life, and now the same can be about about VR, with 3dRudder.
