Mirowin recently announced that the second act for the Early Access version of Guns ‘n’ Stores: Bulletproof VR has gone live for Early Access owners. If you already own the game you’ll be able to dive into the new content, but if you don’t own the game you’ll still be able to dive into the new content if you decide to purchase the Early Access rendition.
The new stage for the rail-shooting VR title sees players taking out bandits at a variety of hideouts and strongholds. You’ll have a Gatling gun to help clear out some of the baddies, along with a new long-range rifle to utilize as well. You can see the weapons, maps, and some of the new enemies you’ll face off against with the trailer below.
The trailer also reveals a new short-range shotgun, and a crossbow that can fire dynamite.
The spastic gunplay is offset with not having to reload as you take on wave after wave of enemies in the set-piece levels.
Michael Shkaredniy of MiroWin commented in the press release about how they’ve been moving through development and managed to get Act II up and out for Guns ‘n’ Stories: Bulletproof VR, saying…
“We couldn’t be happier to share Act II wirth everybody,” “Not only does the story get even crazier, but with new enemy types, weapons and an awesome new boss, Guns ‘n’ Stories: Bulletproof VR is even better than before.”
Guns ‘n’ Stories seems to be aiming to bring the light-gun style arcade shooting experience to the VR table. Whether or not this will garner a sizable audience over time remains to be seen, but MiroWin doesn’t plan on keeping their shooter in Early Access for too long. The game is scheduled to stay in the development phase for only two months and after that it’s graduating from Early Access.
At the moment the game is discounted during the Halloween sale on Steam by 15% off the normal price, so instead of paying $9.99 you only pay $8.49.
There aren’t many reviews in but the game has some potential. It reminds me of a mix between LucasArts’ Outlaws and Valve’s Team Fortress 2, but set within linear arcade-style arenas.
