Today, publisher Mastiff has announced the release date for the latest iteration of Heavy Fire, a long-running arcade-inspired rail shooter series that has been on a variety of consoles, from the PlayStation 3 to the 3DS. With Heavy Fire: Red Shadow, the series is not only making its PlayStation 4 debut, but also its VR debut on October 16, 2018.
Exclusively at Walmart, a physical version of Heavy Fire: Red Shadow will be sold that includes the base game along with the PSVR mode, which will be sold separately otherwise. Preordering the game digitally on PS4 will also include the PSVR version for free, which Mastiff notes in its press release as a 30% discount, although the normal prices aren’t noted in the release.
Here’s a list of key features:
- 360° White-knuckle Action! Use a devastatingly powerful turret-mounted machine gun and rocket launcher combo to mow down enemies in 360° across eight stages in Campaign Mode, or fight non-stop in Endless Mode.
- Call in Support! Call in supply drops and support from elite infantry troops, fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, and more.
- Get Promoted and Powered Up! With more than 30 unlockable Field Promotions, players earn power-ups to upgrade and customize their machine gun, rocket launcher, health, and support skills.
- The Right Tools for the Job! Experience a new level of exciting gameplay with Mixer support on Xbox One, the style and function of RAZER CHROMA support on PC, and the immersion of PS VR support on PS4 (included for free in the physical edition of Heavy Fire: Red Shadow, available exclusively at Walmart, or with pre-order on PS4)
