Pistol Whip is ready for Halloween with Elixir of Madness on all major VR platforms.
Previously revealed in the latest roadmap, Elixir Of Madness offers “ghastly delights” in time for Halloween, taking inspiration from vintage horror cinema and “seedy absinthe speakeasies.”
Focused on electro-swing music soundtracked by Odd Chap with “phantasmagorical” visuals, ‘Halloween Party’ launched on October 5th and two more scenes follow on the 12th and 19th.
Alongside new enemies, Elixir of Madness introduces a Sawed-off Shotgun, Tommy Gun, and Skull Bludgeon and Pistol Whip also receives three new modifiers. ‘Laser Sight’ adds a sight for increased accuracy, ‘Glitch’ promises an added challenge that “forces players to think twice before they shoot,” while ‘Bullet Graze’ rewards you for closely dodging bullets.
Elixir of Madness follows the recent Overdrive Season, which delivered five monthly scenes from April to September – Shred, Nobody Wants You, Good News, Majesty and Work. As seen in the recent roadmap, there’s still more Pistol Whip to come. An unnamed second collection will follow in early 2024 that’s “tracked by the title’s most adventurous genre yet.”
