Fntastic Announces its Asymmetrical Multiplayer Horror Game Dead Dozen

Who here remembers the custom Zombie mode from Halo 2, Infection mode in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach, and Flood mode in Halo 4? Those are some of the franchise’s most popular multiplayer game modes, and the independent game studio Fntastic is trying to bring them over to PC with the new horror game Dead Dozen.

Ok, claiming that Fntastic is trying to port Zombie/Infection/Flood mode over to PC is a bit of a gross oversimplification, but the basic gist of Dead Dozen is the same: players who take the role of humans must survive as long as possible, and players who play as zombies only need to kill the human players (and convert them into more zombies) to win. There are, however, many differences between Halo‘s Zombie/Infection/Flood modes and Dead Dozen, the most obvious being the setting, which is an abandoned Siberian research base in 1993. Furthermore, while the Zombie/Infection/Flood modes are merely custom Halo multiplayer matches limited by the games’ existing rules and mechanics, Dead Dozen seeks to create a survival horror experience. Human players (Survivors) will be able to barricade rooms and search the base for loot, while zombie players (Ghouls) can sneak up on Survivors.

Dead Dozen will not release for a while, but players can pre-purchase the game right now. Fntastic is currently selling two different versions: the First Infected Edition and the Limited Supreme Edition. First Infected Edition will give players access to the alpha test (scheduled for January 8th, 2018) and the unscheduled beta test, the full game, and exclusive “First Infected” skins for both Survivor and Ghouls. The Limited Supreme Edition comes with all of the above, exclusive “Supreme” skins, a digital wallpaper, an invitation to the developers’ Discord group, and a special thank you gift in the form of the player’s name/nickname in the credits and in an in-game location. The First Infected and Limited Supreme editions are currently priced at $14.99 and $39.99 respectively, but they will increase to $29.99 and $79.99 on November 30th.

Dead Dozen appears to be yet another game that seeks to provide an asymmetrical multiplayer horror experience, alongside the likes of Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th: The Game. Only time will tell if it can deliver on its promises and provide a worthwhile experience gamers can enjoy for years to come.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.
