VR action shooter Dead Ground: Arena out now

Virtual reality zombie shooter currently has 30% off on Steam.

Dead Ground: Arena is an action packed arena mode showcase for the upcoming FPS VR game Dead GroundZ. Players take on the role of a secret agent for Blackrain, for whom they are sent on a range of challenging missions. To fulfill their objectives, players can choose from twenty different weapons to take down thirty different, terrifying enemies. Missions range from VIP and hostage protection to fighting your way out of ever-swelling hordes in a confined space. Dead Ground: Arena supports teleport movement through your VR controller and direct player movement, and comes with a variety of graphic settings to fit each player’s hardware requirements providing a seamless immersive experience. Players can choose from a range of  difficulty settings — after completing normal mode, a more challenging experience awaits in veteran mode.

As an agent of the secret organisation Blackrain, players take on a variety of missions in changing environments, ranging from claustrophobic caves to infested railroad stations, where they must fend of unrelenting hordes of enemies. To tackle the challenges of the standalone arena mode, they are equipped with a wide range of weapons, from realistic military firearms and grenades to more exotic ones such as a Freeze Ray or the all-time favorite Gravity Gun to fight more than 30 different reactive NPCs such as typical zombies, crawling and jumping ones and gigantic bosses.

During the Early Access phase of Dead Ground: Arena, the developer team made numerous improvements to the game based on player feedback including support for more devices like Samsung Odyssey, adjustments to gameplay and controls as well as improvements to the already impressive unreal engine 4 based graphics and the addition of new maps and enemies.

Dead Ground:Arena is available now on Steam, with a 30% discount until the 10th of September, priced at £7.97. You’ll need the HTC Vive, Occulus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality headset.
