More Loco Motion in your Ocean or Desert

If you are one of the early adopters of high end VR gaming, this might interest you. Arizona Sunshine, an excellently executed zombie shooter, and easily one of the best in the genre, has added locomotion to its gameplay. For those of you that are uninitiated, this means that instead of "teleporting" around the environment, you can now move at a steady pace, from place to place while gaming, much like you would in any First Person Shooter. I have not given this a go yet, but it will assuredly enhance the gameplay in what is already a killer game. We will be covering it soon in our VR GPU Perf Series.

Locomotion is now part of Arizona Sunshine! Trackpad or joystick locomotion allows you to move through the game world without physically walking in your VR play space or using teleport. You simply use the trackpad or joystick to smoothly move from place to place. For those of you not prone to motion sickness, this can add a greater sense of immersion and enjoyment to the game. Teleport movement will also be available, so that you now have an option on how you want to experience the game.
