House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut – Creeping Flesh Level Reveal

David Bruno's Avatar Posted by Public Relations Representative, Tozai Games

Not content with simply revealing the first exclusive level for the PS3 release of The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut, I’m back to give you the scoop on the second one too. Set in the cosy confines of an slaughterhouse taken over by a meaty disease of sorts, Creeping Flesh delivers you more of the additional awesome content we’ve lovingly added to the extended, and definitive, edition of OVERKILL.

House of the Dead: OVERKILL - Extended Cut – Creeping Flesh Level Reveal

We pick up the story with Varla and Candy again, and this time circumstances lead them to the local slaughterhouse. I’m not going to spoil any of the story or the details around what leads them there, but let’s just say it’s the standard House of the Dead fare; there are guns, motives of revenge and mutants galore, all wrapped up with grindhouse styling.

As you can see from the above image, there is something of a meaty infestation starting to take hold inside the building, and internally we’ve affectionately referred to this as the meat wall (there is also a meat tunnel later in the level, so that’s something to look forward to). Varla and Candy find themselves fighting amongst this meat wall, and as they proceed through the ‘meat factory’ they’ll be forced to take action against the new mutants shown above too. These mutants take the expression ‘meat shield’ to a new level, seeing as the additional flesh they’re lugging around makes them slightly more impervious to gunfire than your standard mutants.

I also wanted to give you a sneak peak at the level boss, which is one of the most horrid creations I’ve ever seen in a House of the Dead title. Meat Katie is a savage hybrid of mutant and…cow. Yes, cow. I can only imagine where all that anger has come from, but my personal belief is that she’s harnessing the powers of all the lost cow souls from within the slaughterhouse. Don’t mock, you come up with better. J

Anyway, Meat Katie is armed with a massive cleaver, and has a nasty habit of flinging large chunks of meat at her intended victims; I imagine Varla and Candy have had plenty of practice avoiding unwanted meat, so it’s probably not too much of an issue for them. In other words, you’re going to need good reflexes, steady aim, and perseverance, because this melee monster is going to take a lot of bullets until she’s beaten.

I hope this serves to only get you more excited about this exclusive PlayStation Move title, and confirm just how much effort the team at Headstrong have put into making the game even more brilliant this time round. You’re in for a meaty treat later this year when The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut fires its way onto North American shelves October 25, 2011.

co-op online would be a MUST BUY..but i highly doubt it will be..either way im getting it. PlayStation needs more games like these..i personally i dont like to move AND aim my character with the move controller gun :/ im hoping they bring back that other sniping game i cant remember at the moment..it had a blast with that one in the arcade era :p

I bought a Playstation Sharpshooter months ago in anticipation for this game. My body is ready.

    Trust me when I say that the Sharpshooter is hands down, the best way to play this game! You’ll see a big Increase in your accuracy, and the controls are near seamless. :)

I have been wanting this but with it being 2011 and it has no Online Co-op It’s Kinda A Deal Breaker For Day One Purchase Maybe Get It When The Price Drops With All The Great Games Coming Out This Fall And This Title Not Having Online I Know It Will Hurt The Sales Of This Great Title

This looks really good, but i’m going to hold off until I read some reviews.

Will there be a bundle out for this game? I dont own MOVE as i really dont see any games i want for it to justify 100$, but i do love the “The House Of The Dead” series so i am interested, but to spend that much money on only this game seems a bit too much. although i have been wanting to play EyePet as well, so that 2 game.

    Headstrong went through and completely overhauled this one. So don’t expect just another port like you’ll get with other games. ;)
    As we have seen so far: new levels, new characters, new mutants, new weapons, HD, 3D, trophies, etc.. They put a lot of love into HotD: OVERKILL – Extended Cut.

Interesting. I find this funny because I was planning to buy a Wii for some games- Just to see them show up on the PS3 a bit later. Granted, I liked House of the Dead more than No More Heroes. ( Played both on the Wii, NMH was boring on the Wii and it’s still boring on the PS3) House of the Dead on the other hand? I really liked that game.

I think I may finally break down and buy a move controller since it’s alot more durable than.. Well. Every light gun since the Konami Justifer and Namco Light Guns have always been terrible for people who stronger than a 10 year old.

Damn it guys, stop making me give you all my money.

    Wow, you just made a flood of memories come rushing back. I played the bejesus out of Project Horned Owl with the Konami Enforcer (green light gun) back on the PlayStation. I’m tempted to break it out and play through it again.
    But, I definitely recommend scooping up a couple PS Move controllers, especially for HotD. It is like bringing the arcade arcade experience home. Wow, that sounded like a total pitch. Ha! Hope you pick the game up when it comes out on October 25.
