About Trapped Dead: Lockdown
For an unknown reason, a small American town suffered from a strange rainfall and the dead rose up from their graves. As one of five different selectable characters you manage to enter the town just before the military locks it down. Each character is connected to the town in a different way and has its own objectives. Now it’s your turn to slice and shoot your way through thousands of zombies in order complete your mission in this action-packed Hack & Slash RPG.
In Trapped Dead: Lockdown, you can experience an interactive horror story from five different points of view – the characters of choice are a marine, a butcher, an assassin, a marshal and the exorcist. Every class comes with their own custom storyline, as well as individual strengths and abilities – the assassin is an expert in firearms, the butcher slaughters his enemies in melee combat and the exorcist fries zombies with his spiritual abilities. Each of the characters features his own individual skill tree, where you can unlock new defensive abilities and attacking moves to aid you in combat.
When experiencing the five individual stories, you will reveal the strange mystery behind this holocaust. Find out what are the protagonist’s motives and plans and finally find a way to stop this infestation. To successfully fight your way through the zombie-infested town, you can choose between wielding two weapons at the same time and equipping one powerful two-handed one. The huge number of weapons keeps the gameplay interesting by letting you experiment with new combinations all the time: Would you like to send a concussion shot with the pistol first, then grab your hammer for a double blow, or rely on the mystical powers of the magic cross to set the zombies on fire? Clubs, axes, knives, revolvers, tasers, rifles, shotguns, bows, grenades, spell books, etc. There are hundreds of different weapons with which to kill the living dead – you can even use vehicles to run them over!
While discovering the huge game world, you’ll encounter many different types of rotting enemies and menacing boss monsters whose different strategies and abilities will require you to think fast and hit hard if you want to live. The monsters thirst for blood and move in quickly from all sides, so make sure not to be surrounded! Friendly NPCs may ask you for help or fight alongside you, but in the end, there’s only one rule in this world: kill or be killed! Lucky for you, the multiplayer mode enables you to fight the hordes together with up to 4 friends!
