Just announced from companies Animantz and Dysotek, is the first person zombie shooter called Deadly Walkers. What they are pushing however is what sets them apart from most of the other droll zombie shooters. You MUST shoot a zombie in the head to kill it. I know, that sounds like a no brainer (eh? eh?). A lot of zombie games let you unload on a zombie and if you fill it with enough bullets it dies. They also move slow. Very slow. We’re talking early early zombie movie slow. But if you’re not careful you can get surrounded by massive hordes of them. Trailer, screens, and more past the break!
If you don’t already know, a second The Walking Dead game is in the works. However it’s not going to be like Telltale Games’ hit game, this one is going to be more like we expect a zombie game to be. Though you will have the choice to avoid zombies, you can take them head on in a first person fashion like you’re used to. I’m pretty excited to see how this one is going to turn out. Check out the trailer below that only hints at what’s to come.

A few months ago we reported on EA’s desire to expand the Dead Space franchise by branching it off into other subgenres. This included the possibility of a FPS, flight sim, and third-person action game (similar to Uncharted) all set in the Dead Space universe.
