Get ready for zombie hell! Arguably the biggest online first-person shooter is about to be invaded by a horde of flesh-hungry undead. Nexon announced today that Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies will be coming to Steam later this quarter.
But the biggest gem in this Owen Hart-like nugget is that the game will be free to play. Kenny Chang, CEO of Nexon Europe, told IGN, “Both players who are new to the game, as well as those that have been logging on to classic FPS games for years, will be surprised with the new action it offers.”
This seems like a step in a more accessible direction for a series that is known to be an absolute soul crusher for newbies.
The zombies will be of the modern, running variety. This choice makes sense in a video game as it is meant to push the action and pace. Aside from having new creatures and weapons, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies will feature new game modes. If for some strange reason you grow tired of killing zombies, you can enjoy the more traditional Hostage Rescue and Bomb Diffusion modes, ensuring that the game will have something for every Counter-Strike fan while keeping a foot firmly planted in the horror dimension.
Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is due out in the third quarter of this year, which means either sometime this month or September.
