NEW ZEALAND, Wellington, March 10, 2016 – Leading games publisher PikPok® today announced that their original title Into the Dead® will be available on Oculus Rift releasing later this month.

Do what you have to stay alive, keep moving as fast as you can, and protect yourself by any means necessary. PikPok has already launched Into the Dead in the mobile, desktop, and TV spaces, and new players will join the more than 50 million fans already enjoying the atmospheric runner. Existing fans will see that the new Oculus Rift version is the highest fidelity and most immersive version of the game to date.
