The dead are about to get in your face with Zombie Army VR

Rebellion’s long-lived undead shooter series is going virtual, as in ‘virtual reality’. Zombie Army VR is coming to headsets this year.

Keep your head on a swivel

So how’s this for a nice little surprise? Rebellion’s Zombie Army series has been around for a good, long time, and graced pretty much every platform out there, but it’s about to get more up close and personal than ever. Scheduled for release some time this year, Zombie Army VR will be heading to  PSVR2, Meta Quest (2, 3 and Pro), the Oculus Rift, and “PC headsets via Steam”.

This isn’t going to be some retread either, as Rebellion says Zombie Army VR will have a brand new campaign, set during the WWII time period. Fans can expect both ranged and melee weapons, and of course the return of the brutal X-Ray Kill Cam.

Following the story of the Zombie Army series, Zombie Army VR brings you back to the field as one of the Deadhunters, an elite squad tasked with hunting down zombie war criminals. You will fight your way through undead hordes near the bombed-out city of Nuremberg and help Hermann Wolff, the Deadhunter’s legendary leader, find his scattered family and fight to free Europe from the zombie apocalypse.

VR brings a new level of immersion to the nail-biting action of the Zombie Army series. Use both hands to aim down the sights of your rifle and line up that perfect shot at range. When things get up close and personal, use each hand independently to dual-wield pistols and submachine guns. You will also need to master reloading drills as the undead masses bear down on you from all sides. Overcoming your nerves and operating under pressure will be crucial if you are to succeed.

Rebellion press release

There’s no release date just yet for this one, but Zombie Army VR will be out some time this year so stay tuned.
