Stare in wild wonder as the half-human, half-zombie protagonist Reid slices through foes on a quest for righteous vengeance! Wield his inhuman zombie powers to fend off enemies while searching the wasteland for answers to what happened to the only man he could trust. Build fantastical new armaments, conjure curious concoctions, or even grow and harvest zombie soldiers to stand by Reid’s side against whatever the apocalypse throws at him. Throughout his adventures Reid will need to take advantage of the strength his zombie side can provide in combat while taking care to maintain what little humanity he has left to stay in the good-graces of the locals…or not, and fully embrace his inner-zombie to shake down the inhabitants. It’s a dangerous world, and in order to stay alive Reid must take full advantage of the dead!
DEADCRAFT is the newest deadly and daring game from Marvelous’ First Studio, creators of DAEMON X MACHINA. As if a hail of meteors reducing earth to a barren wasteland wasn’t bad enough, the devastation released a mysterious virus that resurrected the dead. Ravaged by fire from the sky and the dead below, only a fraction of the human population remains, largely clustered into small outposts where power-hungry opportunists capitalize on the chaos. A rare survivor of exposure to the virus, part-zombie Reid is captured by the twisted Nebron, leader of the Ark. After escaping from the torture table into the surrounding wasteland, Reid is determined to return to the city and exact some apocalyptic justice.
Developed by Marvelous’ First Studio and published in North America by XSEED Games, DEADCRAFT launched on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch™ and worldwide on PC via Steam on May 19. The title is published in Europe on all console platforms by Marvelous Europe. The PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch™ releases of the game have been rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB; the PC release has not been rated.
