Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone Infests PSN Today

Pearl Lu's Avatar + Posted by Pearl Lu on Oct 25, 2011 // Associate Brand Manager at Konami

Hello Zombie aficionados! I wanted to let you know that Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone will be available on PSN later today! Now for those of you who played the first Zombie Apocalypse (released in 2009) welcome back to Konami’s take on the world of the undead. For those of you who are new to this whole experience, I’m here to give you a few brief and yet thoroughly engrossing (emphasis on “gross”) tips about a world that’s near and dear to my heart.

At its core, the game is an overhead twin stick shooter which places a focus on more of a fast-paced arcade type feel. You’ll deal with thousands of zombies throughout the game, all of which are trying their absolute hardest to eat your brain and steal your soul. That’s the bad news. Your job is to use every arsenal at your disposal to fend off the zombie wave and get the hell off this godforsaken Canadian island.

Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone for PS3 (PSN)

Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone was developed by our good friends at Backbone Entertainment. Believe me when I say, Backbone and I are proud of the work we’ve done on this little game so please do me a favor and check it out. When you finally get your hot little hands on the game, here are a few tips and tricks to keep you alive and well.

Fools Rush In!
Do not play this game as if you were playing the very first Zombie Apocalypse! Meaning – don’t think you’re going to survive solely on blasting zombies left and right. What’s worse, if you try and rush through the traversal levels you’re gonna get pwned! That said, take your time. Use some strategery. Make sure to use your secondary weapons as often as possible. However, my recommendation is that you try and keep some of your Pwnage Powers handy until you’re in a jam. ESPECIALLY, Father Bill’s. Keeping Father Bill’s Pwnage Power handy at all times will definitely mean the different between beating the level and seeing the “reload the level” screen. Sorry people. No mid-level save points here!

Don’t Get Too Fond of Jeremy
Most players will probably try and focus on Jeremy due to the fact that he carries around a fast shooting Sub Machine gun. But ignore your other characters for too long and your skills will absolutely, positively not improve. This will, of course, make the game tougher than it really needs to be. The ONLY way to upgrade any of your characters abilities is to use them and use their abilities. Keep in mind that someone like Alma may not seem as powerful at first (due to her slow shooting Sniper Rifle) but upgrade her skills and you can take out multiple zombies with just one shot making her a bit of a heavyweight out there!

Konami Code
Will you get a bit of an advantage if you use the Konami Code somewhere in the game? Hm… maybe!

A final thought… be on the lookout for Downloadable Content (Pure Pwnage pack!) coming sometime in mid-to-late November. You’ll get a chance to play as the missing character, FPS Doug, and possibly be reacquainted with some old Zombie Apocalypse friends.

Enjoy the game when it hits PSN later today for $9.99.

    Hey, thanks for being a Zombie Apocalypse fan! While we are offering a discount for Zombie Apocalypse 1 this week (especially for PS+!), there are no additional discounts right now for Never Die Alone. Sorry :(

Be interesting to see if this game still runs at 480p @ 5fps like it did at E3.

    Cool, thanks for stopping by at E3! We definitely made a LOT of improvements to the game since E3. Be sure to check out the demo to get a feel for how the game shaped up!

I don’t want to sound mean but next time you release a game, pass on these external “writers” you had help you with this game :/

It is a zombie game and I’ve never heard the word “pwnage” used so many times in 5 minutes ever.

Not impressed by the demo, its like a wanna be Dead Nation, I liked and enjoyed the first Zombie Apocalypse more, I think what ruins this one for me is the characters, they are beyond annoying and just not that likable and I found it too chaotic at times with all 4 characters on screen at once. Good attempt though.

+ SNAKE-EYES73 on October 28th, 2011 at 4:40 pm said:

Why no left 4 Dead view? This series sucks so bad from Konami & Sony! Damn it already change the stupid view! and talk about annoying characters that never shut up! Well it does have custom sound tracks but horrible camera view I can see why its only $9.99 lame and no Platiums as well lame Sony just lame!
