Road of Devastation: New Weapons, New Enemies, New Rules

Road of Devastation: New Weapons, New Enemies, New Rules

2011 Housemarque

HELSINKI, FINLAND – September 16, 2011

As Road of Devastation begins, you (and your partner if co-op) escape from a laboratory and find yourself at a crossroads leading to three different roads. Each road has its own perks and dangers lying in wait – with different environments, items and enemies for you to discover. Choose your road, and let the devastation begin…

Crossroads

 

New weapons.

Road of Devastation will give players several new tools and ways to dispose of enemies with. And not just something you can carry with you but also elements found in the environment.

Electrified fences will fry anything that touches them when you turn the power on, so keep your distance and timing right.

Electrified_Fence

Eat 1.21 Gigawatts!!

You may even get to operate heavy-duty industrial saws – perfect for disposing masses of zombies with (personal safety measure – keep your distance from the cutting end while operating heavy industrial equipment).

A new heavy weapon you can carry with you comes with a computer assisted, automated targeting system – more details about this high-tech equipment will be revealed in the very near future…

Enemies evolve.

As the virus evolves, so do the enemies. Road of Devastation will put your skills to the ultimate test as enemy waves start growing and growing in numbers, and getting more and more aggressive…

The virus has now also begun to infect even plant life – be careful when treading plant-infested environments. As you wade through areas with heavily overgrown plant life, you can make your way through by destroying the overgrowth that blocks your progress.

But beneath the ground, masses of buried corpses, all but decomposed have now fused with infected plant life. When these monstrous atrocities burst from amidst the plants, you’ll notice they have no problem treading the infested terrain as they make their way toward you.

Plant_Zombies

Even plant life has been infected by the virus.

In the original game the Mouth’s loud screams alerted walking corpses from the nearby area to your position, but a well-placed shot was all that was needed to stop it from screaming. But it’s back with a vengeance…

“Big Mouth” – true to its name – will have you running and gunning while it lets out its gargantuan scream, unstoppable, summoning its minions straight from hell, from right below your very feet.

Big_Mouth

Big Mouth calls its minions to the surface – you’re on the menu.

New rules.

In order to become the ultimate zombie killing machine you must master the arts of death completely – this time you will be rewarded for pulling off different levels of multikills, making constant tactical decisions based on new money, score and other collectible mechanics, etc.

Multikill

Execute multikills for new bonus rewards.

Road of Devastation features both single player and two player co-op modes (online and offline), as well as a new set of Trophies to get. Prepare to experience Dead Nation in a brand new way in Road of Devastation, scheduled for release on September 28th.

Keep up the fight, your country needs you!
