Update: It's live now in the Play Store. Get it!

A major update is coming to everyone's favorite zombified first person shooter for Android. You want more blood? More guns? More zombies? More awesome? Check, check, and check.

Madfinger packed DT's first big update full of fun stuff - everything from chainsaws to repeating rifles, there are even more ways to slay the undead. That's not all, either; there are new environments, new zombies, and even a casino so you can play the slots. Yes, a casino.

Looks like Madfinger is also catering to those who play on multiple devices, too: DT 1.1.0 will bring a cloud backup and cross platform sync solution so you can pick up and play from the same spot on all devices. And that's awesome.

Update: Looks like it'll be just a bit - they hit a snag during the upload process. We'll keep you posted.

Unfortunately, at this point we're not sure when the update is coming. We've reached out to Madfinger and will update when we get more details. Until then, I'm going to hone my headshot and disintegration skills.

Full Changelog:

The new update brings more fun, more blood, more gadgets. From now on players can:
* experience personally four new savage weapons (including two melees): Chain Saw, Lewis Heavy Machine Gun, Marine Engine with sharp-edged blades and Repeating rifle, a classic of the American West
* enjoy the new funny and handy gadget -- the Head-Flator X100 enables to inflate the heads of zombies to XXL size and... Headshot!
* meet new zombie creatures -- mutated mobsters or armoured SWAT members
* explore new fantastic environments -- underground car park or secret research base institute
* try out new gadgets or get more money - reveal deadly survival arena, that is tailor-made for massacre of hordes of zombies
* visit Casino and try your luck with a slot machine
* and finally safe game data with cross platform cloud backup
This huge update brings Dead Trigger also to Adreno 205, including Sony Xperia Play!

    Cloud backup? awesome! I just got my Nexus 7 and haven't played Dead Trigger much on it despite checking out the enhanced graphics cause I'm already sorta far on my Xoom.

    My only other request would be a group mode a la Left 4 Dead

    This sounds totally legit, I can't wait! That new Lewis Heavy Machine Gun looks like it wants to be in my arsenal! Way to go Madfinger!

      I have to admit, I first read that as the "Huey Lewis Machine Gun".... and got kinda stoked about it.

    .99? Look what I have to buy then! I have about 8.5 left on my playstore credit (I had to get the essentials for a consumption device, what can I say?)

    I was wondering if this game will work with a bluetooth mouse. I really enjoyed 1st person shooters on PC and was wondering if this would work on it?

      Do not know about a mouse, but my PS3 controller works. Love it esp when my TF101 is plugged into the TV via HDMI

  • onpoint G

    MadFinger said on their twitter page the update everyone is waiting for (or something like that) with a youtube link....once i saw a chainsaw it was a wrap for me. L4D on my phone/tablet sleepless nights here I come (not really..kinda)

    The update is being uploaded, but MF ran into some issues, so there may be a delay.

    • Cheeseball

      I'M F5'ING THE G.PLAY PAGE IT DOES NOTHING :(

  • smeddy

    I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok just did an in app purchase for $40,000 in game money and it has not uploaded to the game yet! Arrgh anybody else having this issue?

  • GraveUypo

    this game was a nice surprise to me. i saw gameplay videos and comments on how "difficult" it was without pay2win and i almost skipped it. but i'm glad i didn't. it's not hard at all to play without expending any extra cash, and it actually plays rather well on cellphones, with nice short missions. a bit repetitive, but still very fun.

  • Sootie

    Got this game based on the AP review a while back and never really got to play it until last night but ehh maih gawd, this is a good game, not a good mobile game a good game, I would be happy to play it on the xbox or PC its frickin crazy awesome!

    Just need my nexus 7 to arrive cause I can only kill zombies for about 2 hours before the battery on my s2 dies :( (first world problems)

  • tomcat

    I hope theyll also add gyroscope aiming... its a shame they dont have it :(
    Still love the game though!! :D

  • Southrncomfortjm

    Cloud backup is huge. Doubt I'll be playing this on my GNEX much now that I have an N7, but its a nice option to have.

  • parrispayden

    Why is the game showing up as free for me??!!

    • http://brgulker.wordpress.com/ brgulker

      Don't ask, don't tell? :P

    The in-app purchases are still scaring me away. I'd rather buy the full game up front, and from the reviews, it sounds like you can't progress past the first couple levels without purchasing more.

    • John Petersen

      Then the reviews are wrong. Most of the guns can be purchased with in-game cash. Trouble is, nobody these days wants to actually play through a game, level up, and EARN the in-game credits. They think that if the game doesn't just shower you with them, it's "forcing" you into in-app purchases. The fact is, there are always several randomly-generated side-missions available to earn extra cash and experience in the game. You just have to be willing to play it. And no, it doesn't feel like "grinding." It feels like virtually unlimited replay value.

      Now, there are a few guns that have to be purchased with real money. But none, so far as I can tell, are required. Most of the guns in the store are available with in-game money.

    DEAD TRIGGER IS NOW FREE TO PLAY! You have zero reason to not play it now.

    Well, I wouldn't really call it live. . .Undead maybe. . .

  • Alan

    Live for non Jellybean users only though, seems as though there are issues with the 1.1 update!!!!

  • kosiara

    How can you do the cloud backup? I don't have this option in the game. Neither in the Google Play under Dead Trigger. I bought the game for 0.99 on Android. Any suggestions how I can make the backup?
