ZOMBIE DRIVERTM HD NOW AVAILABLE ON PSN IN EUROPE
EXOR Studios, an independent game development company is proud to announce that Zombie Driver HD is now available on the PlayStation Network in Europe for €9.99. In Japan the game will be available on January 29th.
“Zombie Driver HD on the PS3 is the first console version of the game rendered in native 1920×1080 resolution with no compromise. We wanted to make sure that the game looks really good in Full HD and a simple “up-scale” of our 2D art was out of the question. Instead we took the extra effort of actually manually re-making all of the HUD elements, character images, cut-scene subtitles, etc. to make sure all elements of the game are extra crisp.”
“Not only that, but we also prepared an exclusive reward on the PS3 for completing the Story Mode. If you like smashing zombies with your car, you’re going to enjoy it a lot more with a super fast Drifter super car. It is the fastest car in the game and as soon as it is unlocked, it becomes available in all game modes.” – said Pawel Lekki, co-founder of EXOR Studios
Zombie Driver was first released on the PC platform in December 2009. Zombie Driver HD is a hugely expanded and improved new release and includes more than three times the content of the original.
EXOR Studios received a lot of questions about the differences between the old PC version and the new HD version. Here is a short description of the things that were improved in the past 2 years:
The original game had 17 missions – the HD version has 31 missions with much more gameplay variety. In the HD version, there are multiple different objectives like defending against waves of zombies, epic boss fights, spraying anti zombie repellent, driving special vehicles like the military truck, the tank or the bulldozer as well as bombing missions. The city is a lot more alive in this version because there are moving military vehicles, soldiers fighting with zombies or birds feeding on corpses. A bunch of in game cut scenes tells much more about the story than the previous version did. New enemies have been introduced in the form of zombie spawning infected buses, cargo containers or huge mutated mounds of flesh. The game is a lot more focused on using weapons against zombies which improves the pacing. There is a new Mission Select option that allows to play any mission with any already unlocked car, weapon or upgrade. The minimap is also one of the additions that were made to the HD version along with a large city overview map accessible at any time.
To sum things up – the original version of the Story Mode took about 4 hours to finish – the HD version Story mode takes about 8-12h to finish depending on the player.
There are also other numerous improvements and enhancements to the gameplay mechanics and graphics. These have been described in more detail at www.zombiedriver.com.
