LONDON – July 17, 2018 – The action-packed VR shooter Naked Sun is launching today on SteamVR! Take on the role of “Blackbird” – the first successful human-machine hybrid – in this intense VR shooter set aboard a futuristic cargo train on a non-stop ride to oblivion.
Created by UK developer Door Z, Naked Sun’s jaw-dropping visuals – rendered over a 180-degree field of action – are perfect for devices without room scale. Placing the game’s protagonist on a moving train has the added benefit of avoiding motion sickness altogether – a first for VR first-person shooters.
1 – 0 for the Machines
At the start of the 23rd century, humans finally lost the Earth to artificial intelligence. Machines turned against their creators as every android was updated with a new prime directive: Eliminate all humans. Abandoned cities, high radiation levels, and the constant android threat has pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. A handful of survivors hide in the Deadlands (ruins of ancient cities destroyed by nuclear wars) and are doggedly fighting back. However, the enemy is stronger – and the only way humans can survive is to attack!

Your mission: Intercept a cargo train bound for Mexico City (once the global capital) to kill the city’s defense systems. Once inside, your goal is to disable the mainframe in control of the planet. Getting Mexico City back is the only way to turn the tide of war and save countless human lives.
“After working on several concepts for Naked Sun, we realized that forward movement really makes VR ‘pop’ – especially when moving at high speeds or transitioning between environments on a platform,” says Maksim Burdilov, CEO at Door Z Studio. “We’re thrilled to have solved the motion sickness problem with Naked Sun – and we couldn’t be more proud of the finished product. VR first-person shooter fans are in for a treat!”
