Zombie MMORPG ‘Dead Frontier’ Goes Into Beta

Bolt your doors and barricade your windows, the zombie virus is real and spreading fast! Jagged Blade Games is proud to announce the open beta of their free to play zombie horror MMORPG, Dead Frontier.

“The game has been in development and various stages of testing for the past 2 years. We’re now at a point where we believe the game is ready to be enjoyed by a wider audience,” said Lead Developer, Neil Yates. “I’m excited to see what gamers will make of a true horror MMORPG, it’s a pretty unique concept.”

Dead Frontier combines 3rd person survival horror action with more traditional role-playing elements to create a totally unique MMO experience. Players will need to have their wits about them as they struggle for survival in the decaying, zombie infested city of Fairview. Will you stay in the relative safety of the last remaining human outpost, or attempt to create your own hideout in the depths of the city? The choice is yours.

Dead Frontier plays exclusively in your browser and requires no extra downloads of any kind. What’s more the registration requires only a few seconds so you’ll be playing in no time!

Read on for screens and more info! 1)Unique survival horror gameplay. Unlike other MMOs, survival is a high priority. Food, ammunition and medical supplies are rare so there’s a lot more to staying alive than just defeating monsters. What’s more the game is hard, you’ll need keep on your toes if you want to do well. Despite being purely 2D, we believe Dead Frontier is one of the most scary and atmospheric games available.

2)100% player driven economy. There isn’t a single NPC vendor in Dead Frontier, everything is either bought from, or sold to other real players. The net result is a realistic, but highly unstable post apocalyptic economy. This opens up a lot of new interesting trade centric gameplay.

3)Create your own hideout. In Dead Frontier you can choose to live in the last remaining human outpost, or barricade an abandoned building deep within the dangerous inner city. Surviving away from civilization is hard, but the potential rewards are great.

4)Global events. At certain times during the day the main human outpost will be attacked by hordes of undead. Up to 3000 players will need to work together in order to fight off the horde and protect the innocent civilians in the outpost.

5)Explore a huge deserted city. Fairview is a massive metropolis spanning several miles. Loot from a huge array of realistic buildings, from office complexes to restaurants and supermarkets.

6)Choice of either single player or multiplayer. In order to give Dead Frontier a true horror feeling we decided to implement a single player version of the game when you venture into the dangerous zones. This gives you a feeling of isolation which adds to the eerie atmosphere. It also means you’re not forced to interact with other players if you don’t feel like it.
