In November 2016 Codemodeon launched its football inspired virtual reality (VR) title Header Goal VR: Being Axel Rix onto early access for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Today the studio has announced that the videogame will be leaving early access later this month, receiving a major update in the process.
Dubbed the ‘big zombie update’, players will see the story of Axel Rix expand as the character meets Agent S.C.A.R.Z who is an alien. A new zombie themed episode will be added that includes ten chapters plus there will be a boss fight.
Mixing up the gameplay, balls will now have burning, freezing and exploding effects, whilst some will move like missiles. Axel will also have a new ability called ‘Bazooka Head’ in which his head turns into a bazooka firing cannon balls.
If you’ve not heard of Header Goal VR: Being Axel Rix before it’s essentially a football experience that solely revolves around using your head to deflect balls back at an assortment of targets, with an over arching storyline about a young player called Axel Rix.
The full release of Header Goal VR: Being Axel Rix will take place on Steam and Oculus Home on 17th August. Checkout the new trailer below.
