Konami Digital Entertainment announced last August 17, 2011 that the direct sequel to Zombie Apocalypse will be coming this October on Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. The game is dubbed as Zombie Apocalypse: ‘Never Die Alone’ and will feature four new heroes that will have to battle hordes of undead to survive.
Using whatever weapons come to hand, the player must scour the island looking for survivors and eliminating the flesh-eaters in order to create safe zones. The action is viewed from an elevated position, with the player central to the action. As the undead attack from all directions, the player uses both control sticks to turn and shoot in all directions, with extra items discarded by fortunate survivors instantly added to an inventory. Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone also introduces a new squad-based mechanism, which allows players to work together. A new class-based system allows users to switch weapons between each other, and also distribute powers and energy to those that need it.
