today announced that Dead Block
, a third person action defense zombie survival game developed by the Hamburg based studio Candygun Games
, will be available in North America and Europe for PC and on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network later this year. Powered by Unreal Engine 3, Dead Block focuses on innovative defensive gameplay in which the few remaining survivors, Jack Foster (a construction worker), Foxy Jones (a traffic warden), and Mike Bacon (a perpetually hungry boy scout) have formed an unlikely alliance to protect themselves from the invading undead. Hiding in various shelters around town, they avoid Zombies by building blockades, setting fiendish traps or - as a last resort - using their weapons to fight. Dead Block offers 10 single-player levels, and up to 4-player, split-screen multiplayer with additional 8 multiplayer co-op levels where players can fight side by side with their friends. Ten screenshots
and a trailer have been added in our download area.
