Zombie Army: Fortress of the Dead novel by iZombie creator, Chris Roberson

Rebellion Publishing announced ZOMBIE ARMY: FORTRESS OF THE DEAD, a brand new novel by Chris Roberson (iZombie, B.P.R.D) set before the events of Zombie Army 4: Dead War.

Zombie Army: Fortress of the Dead follows a squad of ‘deadhunters’ in as they journey deep into the Alps in search of answers – who carried out ‘Plan Z’? Are the dead being guided by hands unseen? And is there really a hidden Nazi fortress deep in the mountains? If they’re going to find the truth, the squad must fight their way through hordes of the dead – and even then they may not make it out of the mountains alive…

As announced this week, Zombie Army 4: Dead War is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 4, 2020. Featuring a harrowing new campaign for 1-4 players, huge new levels across Southern Europe, and hordes of ghoulish new undead to slaughter, it’s set to take the world – living or otherwise – by storm!

Zombie Army: Fortress of the Dead will launch alongside Zombie Army 4: Dead War when it hits bookstores in the US on February 4 and UK shelves on February 6.
