If you're a DeadZone player, there are now more ways and places to play than ever before: as of today, the game is also available on Facebook and PC. Mac owners, fret not – it's coming soon to your platform as well. This means you can now get your DZ fix regardless of where you are – all games are cross-platform, and you can log in with your existing credentials.

For those who aren't already playing DeadZone, you're missing out on one of the best multiplayer games to hit Android in... well, forever. Staying true to its name, DeadZone delivers familiar ShadowGun gameplay – but this go you're not slaying mutants, but other players. The game offers two different modes of play: Deathmatch, a player-against-player murderdeathkill slay-em-all; and Zone Control, a sort of capture the flag where teams have to take control of various zones. Both modes are quite enjoyable, and translate very well across the various platforms, be it mobile, PC, or Facebook.

To check it out on the desktop, head here for Facebook, or here to grab a PC download. As always, hit the widget to grab the mobile version.

    How are they going to keep it fair between mobile devices and PCs? It's already extremely difficult for me to control a touchscreen shooter.

      Yeah they are going to need to separate people by platform (tablet/pc) or it's not going to be fun to play on a tablet unless you have a mouse and keyboard attached.

      Even when it was just on tablets you could tell who was using a controller/keyboard and mouse. Just going to be even more people like that now.

        Just spent the last hour playing through Facebook and all of your concerns are dead on. I was able to completely dominate without losing a single game in 10 or so tries. It kind of feels unfair and at some point they at least need to add the option to play with only PC or only mobile users.

      I'm on the touchscreen, and trust me, at the highest level, a touchscreen is better than mouse or controller for shooting/aiming. The only area where controller guys can have an advantage is when you need to roll or throw grenades at precisely the right moment.

      • RocketScience11

        It might be better than a controller if you get good at it, but a good player with a mouse/keyboard should be able to win everytime.

        • Himmat Singh

          I should have made myself clear. I was comparing the touchscreen with a controller, and I shouldn't have mentioned the mouse/keyboard combination. So yeah, you're right.

      • hurrpancakes

        That might be the case if the touchscreen player is able to use assists, but I don't believe you otherwise.

        aaja khelne...main logitech g400 aur tu touchscreen...itna bura bajaunga nani yaad aa jayegi

      • GraveUypo

        there's absolutely no situation in which touchscreen is better than either a gamepad or a keyboard/mouse. period.

  • Alex Schroeder

    I need to ask the obvious question since they already ported shadowgun to the ouya, why not the awesome multiplayer game as well?

  • Mehmet Fatih

    Nice move, really.

  • Mehmet Fatih

    Every game I have played has ended with like that. Top 5 is always either PC or Facebook. They should definetly change this cross platform thing otherwise this game wont be fun anymore..

    I can't tell a cross-platform for a game like this is really a good idea. I doubt mobile players will stand a chance against a mouse and keyboard plus a 17-20" monitor...

  • tim

    if there was a way to play your game on your phone and have it sync'd up with the pc version to watch and use you phone like a controller that would be key - :)

    And for the OUYA?

  • zaldykun

    2 hands vs 2 fingers, who will win? do the math.

  • Martin James

    Why can't they make Order & Chaos 'cross platform'? I know it works on multiple devices but not with the same account.

  • Sz4r1ej

    They completely killed the game with pc access. It doesnt require too big brain to know that was a very bad move. Uninstall...
