Released back in September last year, Deadly Days put a fun spin on mixing together a rogue-lite gameplay loop, a zombie apocalypse and strategic group action. It also just got a lot bigger.
If you've not played it the loop is simple enough: you have a crew that you send to different locations, and then engage in real-time combat and looting before it turns to night and you need to escape back home. Your people level up, gain different weapons and eventually you might find the cure. When you fail (or win) you level up and gain extras through different specializations for future runs.
Now though, it's been expanded quite a lot with the 1.5 update put out June 16. Some of what's new includes:
- Base upgrades
- Weapon crafting
- New languages: French, Italian, Korean, Polish and Spanish
- New map tiles that make runs more varied
- And a lot more
Check out the new update trailer:
A fun strategic rogue-lite about taking town tons of zombies with a little people management. I can highly recommend it and now even more so, that's a nice big free update to play with. Quite a casual game too, although challenging it's easy to get into and play.
