505 Games and console developer FunLabs have announced that the acclaimed open-world zombie survival sandbox game Unturned is now available digitally worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is priced at £19.99GBP/€24.99EUR/$24.99USD and is available from the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store.
Unturned is created by Smartly Dressed Games, a studio launched by Canadian developer and game designer Nelson Sexton. The studio has partnered with publisher 505 Games and remains actively involved in the console development process.
After a hugely successful PC launch (with over 400k ‘very positive’ reviews on Steam), Unturned now turns its brain munching attention to consoles, offering an enhanced gameplay experience and a host of new features.
As well as specific console improvements such as a redesigned camera system, enhanced physics and graphics as well as specific console controller support, Unturned will also offer local split-screen multiplayer for zombie killing fun from the comfort (and safety) of your couch. Another exciting addition for consoles will be the option for players to create their own persistent game worlds on private servers so they can either play with their friends or open them up to anyone in the community. These private servers will be made available free of charge for all console players.
Unturned is an open-world survival sandbox game where players assume the role of a survivor, dropped into the zombie-infested ruins of modern-day society and must work with friends and forge alliances to remain among the living.
Players must search out supplies such as clothes, food and weapons, as well as scavenge for resources like wood and metal to create strongholds and defences to fend off the zombie horde. Survivors must also keep an eye on their health by finding food and water as well as checking on radiation levels.
Getting hit by a zombie or entering ‘dead zones’ without the proper hazmat protection will have an impact on their health. As they progress through the game, players can earn experience points that can be used to upgrade their character improving their chance of survival!
