Today, England-based publisher nDreams VR and and England-based developer Paw Print Games announced Bloody Zombies, a co-op brawler for PS4, PlayStation VR, Xbox One, and PC via HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
According to the pair, the game can be played with or without VR, as it’s a “co-op brawler designed to be played with any combination of TV/monitor and VR players.” In it you fight across the ruins of London, deploying free-form combat, and taking down a variety of undead with an expanding special move-set.
Bloody Zombies when played with VR, allows for a unique viewpoint to help the team overcome obstacles and discover secrets in the game. It supports play of 1-4 players.
Here’s an overview via nDream VR:
London has been lost to the undead plague. Overrun by hordes of mutated zombies, the last hope rests in the united fists of four lone outcasts.
