Oh, to be dead again
In today’s contest you can win a Steam copy of Dead Age 2!
Zombies are everywhere! They’re in armies, in U, and they even ate my neighbors! We just can’t get away from them.
And today is no different. Dead Age 2 just hit Steam Early Access, so we’re giving away some keys to let you experience the horrors of a zombie apocalypse. Watch your fingers, kids.
Lead a group of survivors in the human wastelands of Earth to find a cure to the outbreak that turned the world to hell ten years ago. You’ll complete quests, scavenge for resources, build up a small base, and fight humans and zeds alike in the search for a cure. Engage in tactical turn-based combat to fend off looters, claim new territory, and of course, eradicate the living dead.
- A Brave New (Open) World: A new feature for the franchise, players can now freely explore the open-world map, limited only by walking distance as well as the number of resources that will keep them alive until they reach one of the 80 destinations. New indoor locations, including desolate hospitals, dangerous bunkers, eerie diners, and resource-rich army supply stores, as well as a return to the barren wilderness, bring a new depth to the struggle for survival.
- Home, Sweet Home (Base): Dead Age 2 introduces the Advanced Base Management System. Players can increase their chances of survival by assigning tasks to survivors on their team, such as crafting essential items, building and upgrading stations used to improve defense and the quality of life at their base. Growing your base will unlock advanced crafting recipes that will improve craftable items and resource yield.
- We’re All In This Together: As the undead apocalypse progresses, new factions of survivors spring up: the merciless Military, the devious Smugglers, and branches of independent civilians who have banded together to survive. Players must visit these factions’ outposts, take on missions and make quick decisions during events to gain their favor (or gain new enemies) through an all-new Faction Reputation System. Gaining the support of the factions will improve trade relations in order to purchase upgraded faction gear and unlock new endings.
- Upgraded Combat: A new and improved combat system allows players to strategically place their combatants with new front and back row positioning. With the ability to use up to 24 skills and execute powerful knock-back attacks in battle, players are more powerful than ever as they engage deadly flesh-eating zombies and other survivors hell-bent on taking their resources for themselves. Random events now appear in 3D, adding a terrifying layer to the spine-chilling battles.
There’s even a tiger fighting for you. WTF. The apocalypse is weird.
To enter to win, comment below telling us the perfect companion for battling the hordes of the dead. Clearly, the tiger is already taken, so you’re going to have to come up with something else. Like a bat, or a lemur, or something. I don’t know, anymore.
We have three Steam Early Access keys to give away; winners will be randomly chosen Thursday, July 23. Make sure to comment using a Dtoid account with your current email address on file. If you’re new, sign up here to debate the merits of pet tigers in a zombie outbreak.
