This is my first post on the US PlayStation.Blog – nice to meet everyone! After months and months of hard work I am proud to tell you that Zombie Driver HD will soon be coming to the PlayStation Network. Zombie Driver was originally released on the PC and after lots and lots of improvements it will soon be ready for you to enjoy on PS3.
In the game’s Story campaign, you find yourself trapped in a city full of walking corpses, locked in by a military quarantine. Your only way to survive is to use your driving skills to smash through hordes of zombies and try to save anyone left alive in the city.
Zombie Driver HD features a more varied narrative campaign that is twice as long as the original, adding epic boss fights, demolition missions, new enemies and special vehicles such as a fire truck, bulldozer and even a tank, as well as many more gameplay enhancements. The gameplay mechanics have received a new round of polish by introducing an improved camera system, a recharging afterburner that will help you get out of tough spots and a minimap that will guide you through a labyrinth of zombie-filled streets.
If you’re not interested in complicated plot lines and corporate conspiracy theories, you might want to check out the adrenaline-pumping Blood Race mode full of insane cars, guns, and explosions. It includes three distinct game types that will satisfy all racing and reckless driving fans. In Race events the objective is simple – the first zombie driver to past the finish line wins (unless he gets ripped to shreds by his opponents, that is!). Eliminator events are even simpler in that you have to destroy as many opponents as you can before the time runs out. Finally, Endurance events place a ticking time bomb on your car and you’re forced to smash zombies, demolish the race track, and pass through checkpoints to extend the timer. Not to mention that the entire Blood Race campaign includes 30 different events…
Even that’s not all! The third available game mode is called Slaughter and it puts you in a desperate fight against endless zombie waves on specially crafted arenas. The goal is to survive as long as possible, make huge kill combos, and show your friends who is the best zombie driver on the leaderboards.
I don’t have a final release date to share with you yet, but I’ll try to do my best to keep you updated. I’m looking forward to your questions in the comments below. You can also find more information about Zombie Driver HD on its website and our forums.
