XSEED Games Unearths DEADCRAFT’s First DLC, “It Came From the Junkyard,” Today on PC and Console
Reid and Friends Head to the Junkyard to Battle the King of the Dead; “Jessie’s Wasteland Wares” DLC Confirmed for June 16
TORRANCE, Calif. – June 2, 2022 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today released the first of two DLC packs for their recently launched genre-blending zombie title DEADCRAFT, “It Came From the Junkyard.” This content is available now on Windows PC via Steam, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, the Nintendo Switch™ system, and supported through Smart Delivery on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S for $7.99 individually, or as part of the DEADCRAFT Deluxe Edition including the base game, an in-game costume and items, and both DLC packs for $39.99.
Inspired by the additional stories often included at the end of manga, “It Came From the Junkyard” introduces a new post-game storyline as the King of the Dead, Revenant, and his zombie army plan to invade the Ark. To defend humanity from this new existential threat, Reid will need to team up with his friends and venture deep into the Junkyard using his zombie powers, wits, and arsenal of crafted weapons. Help Reid save humanity from Revenant, and stop the undead from claiming the last remnants of humanity!
DEADCRAFT’s second DLC pack, “Jessie’s Wasteland Wares,” will release digitally on all platforms on June 16, 2022. This new game mode gives players a different perspective on the post-apocalyptic wasteland as they slip on the shoes of the eccentric nurse, Jessie. Together with her teddy-bear companion, Jessie is tasked with raising funds for her beloved lady Duna, never questioning the requests from the object of her obsession. More information about DEADCRAFT and its DLC can be found in the ongoing Developer Blog series on the XSEED Games site.
DEADCRAFT KEY FEATURES
- Farm the Dead to Stay Alive ‒ Plant fresh corpses (or just a combination of limbs) into the ground and give them a little TLC until they sprout into an undead army of infantry, sentries, and more!
- Creeptastic Crafting ‒ Surviving the apocalypse sometimes means using whatever scraps one can find to make new weapons. Other times it means enlisting a loyal undead to assist in building and running an entire factory of grotesque machinery churning out an unholy amalgamation of survival items.
- Death-Defying Powers of the Undead ‒ Reid’s zombie side gives him a powerful advantage in a fight, allowing him to shield himself from danger or swat enemies away like annoying gnats. But as each devoured enemy pushes him closer to his zombie side, he’ll have to take care to maintain what little humanity he has left.
- Become a Savior…or a Scourge ‒ Help out other survivors to learn new recipes or abilities. But if Reid’s hard up for money or supplies, shake down a local and take it off them…as long as he doesn’t mind potentially becoming a wanted man.
