Today Marvelous Entertainment and Xseed Games announced a new zombie crafting game titled Deadcraft.
The game is developed by Marvelous First Studio, which you may know for creating Daemon X Machina.
The game puts the player in the role of a half-human half-zombie (don’t ask me how that works, I don’t know and I likely don’t really want to know) who can pretty literally craft zombies and use them as weapons.
It’s coming for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC on May 19.
You can check out the trailer below, alongside an official description from Marvelous.
Farm the dead to stay alive.
Welcome to DEADCRAFT, a new twist on the zombie survival-action genre!
In a world ravaged by a deadly virus, half-zombie Reid must survive not only by taking an axe, weedwhacker— anything he can get his hands on—to hordes of the undead, but by growing some zombie followers of his own.
Choose your allies and enemies wisely as you try to make it through the apocalypse alive!
- Undead Action
Use Reid’s half-zombie side to unleash devastating powers in battle. Whether your targets are human or undead, crush all who stand in your way!
- Zombie Crafting
Collect and plant the corpses of your enemies to grow your very own zombie workers, then scavenge for materials to create all manner of weapons, tools—even some post-apocalyptic cuisine. Don’t stop until you’ve built an unstoppable undead army!
- Survival at Any Cost
You won’t survive a day in the wasteland without food and water—earn your living by helping others, or simply take what you want by force.
