newest game in developer Silent Dreams' fan-favorite franchise blends the
survival, management, and role-playing game genres with elements of rogue-like
gameplay and turn-based combat as players battle to survive the zombie nightmare
while rebuilding society. Players will experience a brand new, stand-alone story
and all-new features, as they once again brave a world infested with
Building on the strengths of the original Dead Age — which currently has a "Very
Positive" rating on Steam by over 3500 user reviews — players can expect
improvements across the board to the mechanics that drew thousands of players to
the franchise. Dead Age 2 introduces a new, open world where players can explore
unique indoor and outdoor environments, and additional exciting ways to reach
over 80 locations including boats, trains, and other vehicles for faster travel.
A new, advanced combat system will make the survivors a deadly match against
enemies, and an upgradeable 3D base will provide players with the tools they
need to survive and thrive, such as a crafting room for creating helpful items
and a radio station to help them locate essential supplies.
- A Brave New (Open) World: A new feature for the franchise,
players can now freely explore the open-world map, limited only by walking
distance as well as the number of resources that will keep them alive until
they reach one of the 80 destinations. New indoor locations, including
desolate hospitals, dangerous bunkers, eerie diners, and resource-rich army
supply stores, as well as a return to the barren wilderness, bring a new
depth to the struggle for survival.
- Home, Sweet Home (Base): Dead Age 2 introduces the Advanced Base
Management System. Players can increase their chances of survival by
assigning tasks to survivors on their team, such as crafting essential
items, building and upgrading stations used to improve defense and the
quality of life at their base. Growing your base will unlock advanced
crafting recipes that will improve craftable items and resource yield.
- We're All In This Together: As the undead apocalypse progresses,
new factions of survivors spring up: the merciless Military, the devious
Smugglers, and branches of independent civilians who have banded together to
survive. Players must visit these factions’ outposts, take on missions and
make quick decisions during events to gain their favor (or gain new enemies)
through an all-new Faction Reputation System. Gaining the support of the
factions will improve trade relations in order to purchase upgraded faction
gear and unlock new endings.
- Upgraded Combat: A new and improved combat system allows players
to strategically place their combatants with new front and back row
positioning. With the ability to use up to 24 skills and execute powerful
knock-back attacks in battle, players are more powerful than ever as they
engage deadly flesh-eating zombies and other survivors hell-bent on taking
their resources for themselves. Random events now appear in 3D, adding a
terrifying layer to the spine-chilling battles.
