Quote:The developers of Arizona Sunshine have not had a great day, and it was due to fan anger over previously undisclosed Intel i7-exclusive content in the game.
The controversy over two pieces of content in the game began with a post on the game’s Steam page, asking why one machine the player owned could play the horde mode in single-player and the other could not.
The developer responded to explain that two aspects of the game, the single-player Horde setting and Apocalyptic Mode, which is the game’s highest difficulty, were locked to machines running Intel’s i7 chip until March of next year.
“Working with Intel allowed us to create even more content than we originally planned, including these modes and the physics systems in the game, making Arizona Sunshine one of the richest VR experiences possible,” Vertigo Games wrote. “We want to give 5th, 6th and 7th gen Intel Core i7 owners first glimpse into these additional modes, but they’ll be available March 6, 2017 to everyone who owns the game.”
The fans revolted, with many demanding refunds and some replying with disgust at the previously unannounced exclusivity of seemingly large portions of the game.
Vertigo Games has since made an official statement on the matter. “It’s clear from your feedback many of you are not happy with the previously undisclosed modes being available only on certain higher end PCs,” they wrote on Steam. “You are most important to us, and we hear your comments. We are unlocking these modes immediately to all players, and we hope you enjoy them.” The patch has already been released to the public.
