We haven’t had a decent zombie game set in the UK since Ubisoft’s ZombiU back in 2012, so Bloody Zombies from developer Paw Print Games and publisher nDreams is certainly something to look forward to. The announcement trailer debuted on the official PlayStation YouTube channel and can be found below.
From the Press Release:
London has been lost to the undead plague. Overrun by hordes of mutated zombies, the last hope rests in the united fists of four lone outcasts.
