If you're a fan of the top-down zombie carnage free-for-all that is Dead on Arrival, good news: N3V Games just opened registration for the private beta of the game's sequel – the appropriately named Dead on Arrival 2. image

There are a few requisites, of course – namely in device specification. For starters, you must have a device with at least a Tegra 2 (or equivalent), though a Tegra 3 (or equivalent) is recommended. Aside from that, you'll need a minimum of Android 3.0 (though 4.0 is suggested). Past that, the additional recommendations are the best part:

Have a stomach for wave after wave of bloodshed and mayhem!
Aren't scared of the dark.
Don't need aspirin for headaches.
Have no problem shooting your zombie friend in the head if you had too.

The first beta will be available in May, so if you think you've got the chops, head here to register – though be aware that you're signing into an NDA by agreeing to the terms of the beta.

    Didn't seem that great, the game will probably be dead on arrival.

    • Himmat Singh

      Well, if you put it that way, it's not the best of titles is it, for a game? ;)

    • Herman

      The first one was already Dead on Arrival.
      This one's Dead on Arrival Too!

  • Aaron Huffman

    ummm, where did the website go?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Their site is extremely flaky it seems. Yesterday it was completely down around the same time too.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    Hey guys at AP just check for a bug on the site I am unable to see the comment or post any comments from my android device only to gears show no comments

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Works for me. Can you please detail the issue?

      • yash khatri

        well I use opera mini on my android 4.1.2 and whenever I go to comments section in the mobile version it just shows me 2 or 3 gears instead of any comments

        • Andrew

          The 3 gears is Disqus's loading icon, so there's probably an issue presenting it from loading properly. Try going to another site that uses it and see if it works there. Seems to be used everywhere these days, for some reason.

          • yash khatri

            yep tried that works there it's only the AP and gizchina site that has the problem

          • yash khatri

            Tried it on stock browser also does not fix the problem

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            No idea what's going on. It's working for me. Anyone else care to chime in?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Opera Mini? I don't know, I've only tested with Opera Beta and Opera Mobile, not sure if Mini works. Either way, that's probably something only Disqus can fix if you can report it to them. http://disqus.com/support/

          • yash khatri

            also forgot to mention the problem was not there till last saturday friday night (IST) I see it saturday morning (IST) bam gone god knows what went wrong

        • silaslenz

          Opera mini renders everything on opera's servers. So if something is not finished when the data stream from opera ends, it will not be loaded. Try to download something from one of those sites with timers, and you will see that the timer is not counting down anymore after some seconds.

          The reason it might work on the full page is that the page itself takes longer to load, and then keeps the connection to opera long enough for disqus to load.

          TL;DR: Opera mini could be the problem. However if it doesn't work in other browsers, something is strange ;)

          • yash khatri

            doesn't even work with the stock browser bundled with android 4.1.2 and yes have observed it the countdown never works but it should work on stock browser atleast

    This looks fun (I don't tire of the zombie genre, when done right). I just hope it has a good story, immersing gameplay, and sane level progression.

  • Richard

    Please...no more zombie games...and no more endless runners..... How about being creative when creating games?
