Dead Upon Us is a new zombie survival game that blends first person combat and real time strategy as you take on the role of a Rick Grimes-esque leader who attempts to keep his people safe from the zombie hordes.
In Dead Upon Us you are tasked with leading a small group of survivors in a world infested with zombies. Blending RTS and FPS gameplay, you design and construct a safe haven for your people, deal with local and political affairs and strive to keep them alive by any means necessary. Every little helps in this wasteland, so you can also earn weapons and equipment by taking part in multiplayer game modes, scavenging or using the in-game currency.
The competitive multiplayer game modes in Dead Upon Us include Deathmatch, Extraction and Zombie Master. Deathmatch comes in the form of Free-For-All or Team Deathmatch combat, Extraction sees you attempting to survive the zombie hordes for long enough for the military to arrive and Zombie Master sees one person controlling the zombie horde as in an RTS game while the rest of the players try to survive.
Visually Dead Upon Us lacks a little polish at the moment, but it’s still early in development and the fusion of RTS, FPS and competitive multiplayer gameplay shows a lot of promise. Sign up now to start helping those survivors stay in one piece in it’s zombie infested land.
