There are now six Sharknado movies out, but now the franchise is swimming to the video game industry later this year. If you own a VR device, you’ll be happy to know that developer Autumn VR is releasing Sharknado VR: Eye of the Storm very soon.
All of the details were revealed in a press release that was issued out earlier this week. You can read about all of the known details posted down below.
Revealed over the weekend at the Sharknado 6 movie premiere in LA, Sharknado VR: Eye of the Storm celebrates the terror and laughter of the famous fan-driven Sharknado movie franchise as well as adds a few new surprises not seen in the films. The over-the-top horror and comedy that fans love from the movie series translates into a rowdy game which features blood, guts, and belligerent deep-sea creatures from the Sharknado films.
“In Sharknado VR: Eye of the Storm, players find themselves in the middle of the gory action as they battle freak, fin-filled weather phenomena,” explains Dave Hansen, producer and director at Autumn VR. “It’s a great blend of humor and terror which should appeal to everyone! I mean, who hasn’t fantasized about blowing away a great white coming for them with a bazooka?”
Players fight through familiar scenarios and scenes from the Sharknado movies, in locales from LA to NYC to Kansas and more. Sharknado wranglers will save soaking-wet bystanders while dodging and clashing with sharks, jellyfish and barracudas, and even come across Sharknado franchise Easter eggs along the way.
Autumn VR the developer are no strangers when it comes to VR video games. The studio has previously made the likes of Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul and produced the Jesus VR: The Story of Christ feature film last year too. Sharknado VR: Eye of the Storm will be released later this year for PSVR, Oculus, Steam, iOS and Android. For more information, you can click here to visit the official website.
