Ever since it morphed into an open world MMO earlier this year, Dead Frontier 2 had our attention as a developing title. But how has this zombie survival game fared during a year with a real-world plague raging?
It turns out that for a game about dead things, it’s been pretty lively. Dead Frontier 2 officially released on Steam Early access in September with the goal to at least present a “a nice, polished core game game loop” for players. It’s actually garnered respectable player reviews since then.
The developer has been taking all of the feedback from early access players and vowed to work hard to improve the title. Dead Frontier 2’s bigger additions since then include outpost attacks, a large outdoor PvP zone, challenges, and armor. It recently ran the Halloween Howling event that included some competitive werewolves.
Dead Frontier 2 describes itself as an “old school survival horror” game where players have to “make every shot count” and trade amongst themselves for precious resources. It also operates under what developer Creaky Corpse says is “ethical free to play,” so take that as you will.
