Zombies are still cool, right? Even if they're not, Dead Trigger 2 could potentially tip the scales of trendiness in favor of the undead. The zombie shoot 'em up has been teased a few times, but now we've got a date. Madfinger Games will release Dead Trigger 2 on October 23 – just in time for Halloween.
The game will be optimized for Tegra 4 devices like the Shield and just announced Tegra Note devices, but any modern Android device should be able to get in on the fun. There will still be lots of zombie shooting, but Dead Trigger 2 will be taking place in an expansive multiplayer world that develops in real time.
Dead Trigger 2 will be a free to play title and should be released simultaneously on multiple platforms. We don't know how big the download will be, but it's a safe bet you should clear some space. Full PR below.
