After a hugely successful PC launch, 505 Games and console developer FunLabs today confirm that the acclaimed open-world zombie survival sandbox game UNTURNED will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 12th November.
UNTURNED is created by Smartly Dressed Games, a studio launched by Canadian developer and game designer Nelson Sexton. The studio has partnered with publisher 505 Games and remains actively involved in the console development process.
UNTURNED is an open-world survival sandbox game where players assume the role of a survivor, dropped into the zombie-infested ruins of modern day society, and must work with friends and forge alliances to remain among the living. Players must search out supplies such as clothes, food and weapons, as well as scavenge for resources like wood and metal to create strongholds and defenses to fend off the zombie horde. Survivors must also keep an eye on their health by finding food and water as well as checking on radiation levels. Getting hit by a zombie or entering ‘deadzones’ without the proper hazmat protection will have an impact on their health. As they progress through the game, players can earn experience points that can be used to upgrade their character improving their chance of survival!
The console launch will also see a host of specific console enhancements including a redesigned camera system, enhanced physics and graphics as well as specific console controller support to improve the player experience. Private servers are free of charge for all players, so anyone can create their own persistent server where they can play with their friends only or open it up to anyone in the community. Speaking of buddying up with friends, local hosting and split screen functionality mean you won’t have to face the undead alone.
