Cloudhead Games is ready to unleash the next cinematic campaign into its VR shooter Pistol Whip. The Smoke & Thunder update will be riding onto all major VR headset platforms on August 12, 2021. The campaign includes a fully voice-acted story set in the Wild West, a star-studded soundtrack, and the new Styles system that brings sandbox replayability to the game.
Smoke & Thunder features include:
- new weapons and mechanics
- a “dastardly new outlaw threat”
- a new boss fight
- cutscene cinematics
- Arcade mode featuring campaign scenes from Smoke & Thunder and 2089
The Styles feature is described as:
Pistol Whip’s new “Styles” system sandbox allows players to combine their preferred weapon type with up to five modifiers to create an unstoppable action experience that’s exactly what they want. After finding a preferred Style that’s uniquely their own, players can challenge friends or compete solo and be the first person to dominate the leaderboard uniquely generated for that “Style’s” choice.
New weapon types also burst onto the scene with the debut of Styles, including Brawler, which transforms the previous No Ammo modifier into a glorious new melee mode. 2089’s Burstfire and the new weapons from “Smoke & Thunder” are also available in all scenes with Styles.
