Crazy there's no thread for this game. Especially since it's release is right around the corner. I went back about ten pages and never saw one. I personally think it could be one of the best zombie games of all-time, if not the best.


Developer: Techland
Publisher: Deep Silver
Release Date:
US - September 6th
Europe - September 9th

I feel like its going to "fail" due to its hype. As in, it might be a good game, but it probably will go down as a "meh" game. I think the idea behind the game is much more appealing then what the game will actually be.

With that said, I havent followed it too much, seen the E3 stuff, and I wont buy it strictly because I have no money lol. Or time for that matter. My life is in a flux lol

I've been following this game. It had a pretty amazing trailer and I find zombie survival games pretty fun. The special edition comes with a lot of neat stuff too.

I agree with HH about this likely being a disappointment. I like zombie games and concepts but the wait-and-see approach is the way to go with them.

The trailer for this game looked amazing! I don't have the money to buy it though.

I think the fact that it will attract a lot of Borderlands' fans will make it a success, as well as people who just generally like zombies and/or co-op games. It has been in development for a while too. I think it'll be good for what it is. I definitely plan on getting it eventually.

This game is going to fail. Why? Because they decided to release it the same time (within a month or two) of other Triple A titles.

Should have just released this game 1st quarter of 2012.

Borderlands dropped in 2009, along with MW2, L4D2, Assassins Creed, Halo (granted, it was ODST), Uncharted 2...and still managed to sell like crazy, so much that it was sold out of many stores.

Doubt that'll turn people away. Plus it releases 2+ months ahead of them all. It's going to get compared to Borderlands and L4D2, and then it'll be a huge success..lol

I wonder when the zombie hype is going to die. I'm pretty tired of it quite frankly

Not trying to be rude, but what exactly did you find entertaining about those 20 minutes?

Graphics seem ok, but I got tired of hearing the character mutter the same 3-4 lines over and over, in addition to using the same attacks all the time. Throw in the fact that it moves at a snails pace, I'm passing on it. Maybe next time they should try show some exciting/different aspects to the game instead of repetitive ones. Just my two cents

Thanks for saying it for me, This game is incredibly slow paced, I hope that this person was playing on easy difficulty because they were so slow to react to things. Those 4-5 asian lady lines are just unbearable, and seeing the charachter kicking with high heels is a real turn off. Is this a Zombie apocalypse or are there only like 3 people per square mile that got infected. You hardly ever saw more than 3 at a time. The sound effects in this game are just week. There's no sounds to pump you up and no combat music at all. The whole game just seems like it's missing the background sound layer.

Just noticed, how come there is a motion tracker that tells you where the zombie's are, aren't the zombie's supposed to be able to track you?
