The Zombie Apocalypse is nigh

Posted by: Marissa at 9/18/2009 8:37 PM
Konami announced today that the much-hyped Zombie Apocalypse has a release date, and it's next week! The game becomes available for download on Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday, September 23rd, and the following day on Playstation Network, Thursday, September 24th.

Up to four players, either locally or online, can team up against the horde in this arcade style, dual analog stick shooter that boasts 11 weapons including teddy bears filled not with cuddly stuffing, but C4.  Brings us back to our childhoods. You'll battle through 55 days of zombie attacks over seven environments. Should you complete this gruesome feat, you will unlock seven different challenge modes that give you a good amount of replayability for your money.

The game will have a price point of 800 points on XBLA and $9.99 on PSN, which if this game turns out to be as good as it looks, is a total steal.





KONAMI ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE AND
ASSETS FOR ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

The Fight For Survival Hits Xbox LIVE® Arcade On September 23 and
PLAYSTATION®NETWORK on September 24

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the release date and new screenshots from the highly anticipated downloadable game Zombie Apocalypse. Coming to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on September 23 and the PlayStation®Network on September 24, Zombie Apocalypse drops players in an epic battle between the dead and the living!

Equipped with ample artillery, players' dual analog stick shooting skills will be put to the test in the thrilling arcade style shooter. As gamers set forth on their mission to conquer zombies, they can choose from up to 11 diverse weapons including assault rifles, flamethrowers and teddy bears filled with C4 explosives. A chainsaw is also available to players who want an up close and personal encounter with the roaming dead. Savvy players can also take advantage of their surroundings as they utilize environmental hazards to destroy massive hordes of zombies.

Players navigate through seven environments and fight their way through 55 days of zombie attacks without becoming a brainless zombie. Should they succeed, they will be rewarded with seven challenging game modes that will enable them to re-live the apocalypse all over again. As an added bonus, gamers do not have to face the evil masses alone as multiplayer capabilities allow up to four shooters to take on the zombie confrontation locally or co-operatively online.

Zombie Apocalypse will be available on September 23 on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points and September 24 on PlayStation®Network for $9.99.
