If you’re anything like me, you too love Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and have been looking for something to scratch that western-style undead itch! Thankfully, the team over at DIRIGO Games are working to bring their horror FPS title, KINGDOM of the DEAD to PC via Steam on the 26th of January, 2022.
Combining unique black and white, hand-drawn visuals with classic FPS mechanics and gameplay KINGDOM of the DEAD drops you into 19th century North America where you take control of Agent Chamberlain, previously a professor now turned Army General who has been employed by the US government’s top-secret program, GATEKEEPER.
The program’s main purpose is to prevent the uprising of Death themself as they garner more power and soldiers after being fuelled by a recent war. As the undead prepare to enact the preliminary elements of their invasion of the overworld, Agent Chamberlain is the only thing that stands between the army of the undead and total global catastrophe.
Throughout the 8 playable missions, you’ll venture across various remote parts of the US East Coast fighting up to 22 different enemy types with 8 unique weapons. There’ll also be a plethora of “old-school” bosses for you to take on. If you’re not feeling like playing a story-driven game and just want to shoot some undead you can also try out the game’s “endless gameplay mode.”
Whilst the title may still be a few months off you can play KINGDOM of the DEAD’s first mission right now on Steam.
