Following the extremely positive reception of the original Drop Dead, Soul Assembly has unveiled Drop Dead: The Cabin. In this twist on the first-person zombie shooter, two players must team up to survive a night in the woods with the living dead.
Zombie shooters, in any aspect, are not exactly a rarity. However, you play The Cabin with a Meta Quest 2 on your head, which puts you much closer to the action. And then suddenly it’s a lot harder to stay calm and make the right decisions when it comes down to it. Because survival is not that easy if you also have to ensure that the generator remains supplied with fuel, the lights have to stay on and the communication with the outside world continues.
Players are expected to work together to achieve these goals, which can translate to fighting side-by-side, splitting the work, or backing each other up. But, in theory, mostly to heart-pounding action as they try to cope with Dr. Monday.
“With Drop Dead: The Cabin, we wanted to create an immersive cooperative survival experience that is more than a massacre, but rather a tactical challenge that requires teamwork, planning and good communication to survive,” explains Soul Assembly CEO David Solari. “We’re big fans of 80’s horror like The Evil Dead, The Cabin in the Woods and Stranger Things, so we wanted to deliver our love letter to the genre in the most immersive way possible: VR.”
Drop Dead: The Cabin is due out later this year. Players who are interested can sign up here sign up for the beta.
