nDreams has today announced a publishing agreement for Paw Print Games’ Bloody Zombies, coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year. The latter two versions of the videogame will include support for virtual reality (VR), through PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Bloody Zombies is a side-scrolling beat-‘em-up designed for multiplayer co-operative gameplay. Up to four players can join a game in any combination of local and online play as they battle through a version of London ravaged by zombie hordes. The videogame promises to delivery all of the usual brawler tropes with the added element of unique gameplay designed for those in VR.
Antony White, Co-Founder and Director at Paw Print Games, said: “Bloody Zombies combines irreverent British humour, exaggerated characterisation with an approach to over-the-top urban violence to create a new style of brawler. Team play is definitely key, but you’ll also need to beat your friends to compete for the highest score.”
In Bloody Zombies, the VR player(s) will benefit from an enhanced viewpoint, allowing them to find in-game secrets. Any combination of VR and non-VR players is allowed, either locally or online.
“Bloody Zombies transforms the classic co-op brawler into an original experience. Players team up to battle the undead in the streets of London, regardless of whether if they are playing in VR with its unique viewpoint or on console or PC,” said David Corless, VP of Publishing, nDreams.
Set for release later this year, Bloody Zombies will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. VRFocus has already been hands-on with the videogame and will bring you much more coverage soon.
