Cloudhead Games is going all-out with the latest Pistol Whip update.
Cloudhead Games has announced a few new things for its brilliant arcade VR shooter Pistol Whip, including a new campaign, a new ‘Styles’ sandbox, and a price increase to support the developer and all the free content updates that have been released so far.
Smoke and Thunder is a new Western-themed campaign and a departure from what we’re used to with Pistol Whip. It’s a five-part campaign with new weapons, mechanics, enemies, and a new boss fight, as well as the all-important new tracks.
The new campaign will feature tracks from The Heavy, Black Pistol Fire, Bones UK, Devora, and Magic Sword, with the latter providing a brand new track that will be debuting inside Pistol Whip. If you’ve never heard of any of those artists… You’re not alone – you’re just old, like me…
The “Styles” sandbox is a brand new feature coming as part of the August 12th update and it’s an interesting proposition: create your own way of playing by mixing weapons and up to five modifiers, then challenge to world to take you on with the in-game leaderboards.
This, and more, is all coming to Pistol Whip on August 12th, 2021. And it’s completely free. If you already own the game, you’ll get everything in the update for no extra cost. It’s crazy. But it’s coming at a price that others will have to pay; from August 15th, Pistol Whip will cost $5/£5/5€ more, and the developer states that this small price increase is to support the “creations of epic content” and updates. Fair enough, really.
The Smoke and Thunder update will arrive on PSVR, Quest, and PCVR on August 12th. Below are a couple of trailers showing off what’s to come in the new Pistol Whip update.
