Pixel Toys has launched the original VR zombie-shooter Drop Dead today for Samsung Gear VR Powered by Oculus. Combining highly detailed 3D graphics with the first-person immersion of virtual reality, Drop Dead delivers heart-pounding, quick-trigger, arcade action against the relentless swarms of the undead in both single-player and multiplayer game modes.
“As both creators and players, Gear VR’s ability to take us to new worlds with comfort and convenience has been incredibly exciting,” said Andy Wafer, CEO at Pixel Toys. “Drop Dead takes full advantage of Gear VR’s cutting-edge design to deliver an experience unlike anything else on the platform for hardcore and casual gamers to enjoy alone or together.”
Drop Dead takes players on an adventure that blends light horror and humor through 13 single-player missions featuring intuitive gameplay, interactive environments and uniquely challenging enemies. It also includes real-time multiplayer for up to four players simultaneously. Pixel Toys is working on two additional chapters of single-player content, expected to arrive as free updates later this year.
Drop Dead is available today worldwide on Gear VR at a special 20% launch discount for $7.99 (through Nov. 1). It is also in development for Oculus Rift.
