Tencent has revealed a brand-new survival game named Undawn, which offers adventures of a group of survivors in the post-apocalyptic zombie world. But the zombies are not the only obstacles that players will face.
Undawn has promised to bring PvE and PvP, and along with normal crafting and scavenging, players will be able to group up to trade resources and build shelters that will help them to ride out the end of the world with more ease.
“With Undawn, we wanted to create a new type of action game that combines open-world freedom with RPG elements that would completely redefine the genre, regardless of platform,” said Rick Li, executive producer at developer Lightspeed & Quantum Studios. “The fact that we created such an amazing experience for mobile and PC platforms means that even more players around the globe will be able to survive the apocalypse together, creating the potential for a huge new type of open-world experience.”
Tencent stated via an email that Undawn is the “official name” for the previously mobile-exclusive Dawn Awakening. Right now, it’s not clear about the crossplay, and Tencent said that crossplay “is something the development team wants to include, but is still under development.”
A recent gameplay video of Dawn Awakening suggests that it is a straightforward third-person shooter game but when looking down the sights that shift into first-person. Zombies will be the main attraction but the website of Undawn is giving hints at some deeper weirdness. Storefronts haven’t announced anything officially yet, but according to the website, Undawn is coming very soon.
