The hotly anticipated remaster of 2016 VR shooter Vertigo finally has a release date. Zulubo Productions' Vertigo Remastered will land on PC this July and will be free to everyone who owns the original Vertigo.
In Vertigo, you are suddenly teleported from your blissful home in a rural idyll straight to a futuristic sci-fi facility. Naturally, something has gone wrong, and it's your job to find out what. Surrounded by weird monsters and strangely smiling robot drones, you must delve deeper into the facility in order to figure out exactly what's happening, what your role in it is, and how you can put a stop to it. You can check out the trailer for Vertigo Remastered right here:
Vertigo Remastered will offer the same Half-Life-esque gameplay as the original, but with some key enhancements. The game will use assets and updates from the upcoming sequel. Its developer, Zach Tsiakalis-Brown, describes it as "a complete overhaul and occasional reimagining" of the 2016 original. It'll have fully physics-driven weapon handling, new enemies and returning foes alike, and an unlockable upgrade tree, among other things. Even if you're a fan of the original and you've played it to death, it sounds like you'll find plenty to love in this new version.
You'll be able to check out Vertigo Remastered when it launches in July this year. If you own the original Vertigo, you'll be able to enjoy this remaster completely free. If you don't, it'll set you back $24.99. There's more info coming closer to the game's launch, so stay tuned and we'll bring you more on this as we get it.
