A new zombie game is coming out Spring of 2006! It goes by the name of City of The Dead, based of George Romero's series of horror files, Night Of The Living Dead. Here you can find a brief article on this new game. I apologize for the crappiness of the article, but I just saw the 4+ page preview in my issue of Game Informer, for those who have it. This new game will include dismemberment, along with Half Life 2's Havok Physics Engine. With the combination of these, it's said that zombies may even throw bits of other zombies to try and get you! So far it seems as though the arsenal is limited to the Shotgun, Pistol, "Electro Lance" (Laser?) and the Machine Gun. I'd assume that new weapons will be added later. The graphics look pretty good, and the zombies fit what you would think of as the "Classic" zombie originally portrayed in Night Of The Living Dead. The only diffrence is that some zombies will run at you on all fours like animals, while zombie cops (and other's that may have had guns in life) may shoot indescrimatly occasionally to try and kill you, hitting friend and foe alike. I think it looks like a pretty good game. It's known to be coming out for PC, Xbox, and Playstation 2. Enjoy!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to finish reading my article in Game Informer. :D
American McGee is in on it? Brilliant. I loved American McGee's Alice. Dismemberment and zombies throwing pieces of their buddies like apes tossing poo sounds like a grand time. Now let's all hope for a good soundtrack, because that seems to always mess up highly anticipiated games like this. >.
Yeah, it's looking pretty good so far. I'm not exactly a fan of the hororr genre, and I'm interested.
YES THANK U JESUS AN ACUAL ZOMBIE GAME NOT A MOD THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hopefully theyll get romero to help with it
He's the one that came up with the idea to make it I believe.
o yeah i remeber on the 100 scariest movie moments he said he sat in on a class at one of the gaming colleges and suggested it but he said it probably wouldnt get off the ground
Here is a link that shows that Romero is in fact working with the development team of this game. Hopefully it will make the game that much better.
Hopefully he won't slip any killer frogs into the game.
Yes, hopefully it won'y become another Resident Evil, but the gameplay looks much diffrent. It's actually an FPS for one, and I think the source of zombies is sort of unlimited, so they just keep coming over their "Dead" so to speak. Also, zombies are only truly "killed" when you shoot them in the head, destroying the brain. It must look cool to blow a zombie's leg off, and an arm, and have him still coming after you. I hope that the zombies eat eachother as well as humans, death to the weakest zombies!
After reading a bit more into it, I think that there may be melee weapons, or atleast be able to use the enviroment as a weapon, due to the fact that the Havok Engine is used.
