Cloudhead Games Reveals Awesome Pistol Whip DLC

Pistol Whip is one of the best VR experience out there, but it’s about to get a whole load better with the upcoming Smoke and Thunder DLC. 

Launching in 2019, Pistol Whip has come a long way since, and developer Cloudhead Games know it. This on-rails VR shooter is exhausting, manic and completely awesome. You’ll be Matrix-ing your way around incoming bullets and pulling off the coolest of headshots. 

Luckily for those looking for more bullet-mayhem, Pistol Whip has some new DLC on the way. Launching on August 12th, Smoke and Thunder brings an all-new campaign. 

A couple of sisters are battling it out in this Western-themed expansion, which will introduce new enemy types, bosses, horses and guns. This is the second campaign to be added to Pistol Whip after the Blood Dragon styled sci-fi 2089.

With the new campaign just around the corner, Cloudhead didn’t stop there. Arriving with Smoke and Thunder, Pistol Whip is adding a Styles mode. This will allow players to completely customise their experience. 

With millions of variations, players can make enemy heads big, or choose pain by increasing enemy fire rates. It’s all down to you, and unique modifier combinations will create their own leaderboards, so you can challenge your friends. 

Pistol Whip has also expanded a lot since its launch. Starting out with just 10 “scenes”, the VR shooter now has a whopping 28, each with their own exciting designs and head-bopping tunes. Each of these scenes are added in regular free updates.

While some VR titles like Far Cry VR are hoping to create immersive experiences in arcade settings, players will forget where they are in Pistol Whip. It easily stands alongside Beat Saber and Superhot VR as one of the best VR experiences.

The Pistol Whip DLC, Smoke and Thunder will arrive this week on August 12th. Players can access Pistol Whip across Steam VR, PlayStation VR and Oculus.
