TORONTO - May 8, 2012 - Today during the first “PlayStation <3 Canada” event, Frima Studio announced the development of Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge for PS Vita and PS3. The sequel to the 2009 PSN hit Zombie Tycoon, Brainhov’s Revenge steps up the hilarious, irreverent RTS gameplay of the original with an array of new zombies, sharper graphics and multiplayer Cross Play capability.
In addition to providing hours of zombie blasting fun, Zombie Tycoon 2 will ambitiously tackle one of the biggest debates in pop culture, pitting classic, shambling zombies against Dr. Brainhov’s new breed of frantic, über-fast undead to open an entirely new dimension of gameplay.
“At Sony we’re always excited to see new titles pushing the envelope of our technologies and with its real time, cross-platform gameplay Brainhov’s Revenge is no exception. We’re pleased to have this kind of great content in the development pipeline and look forward to providing players with an innovative Cross Play experience,” said Matt Levitan, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Sony Computer Entertainment Canada.
“With Lights, Camera, Party! and the latest Zombie Tycoon title, Frima Studio continues their track record of producing high quality work with the support of the Canada Media Fund. We’re proud to invest in such digital products that utilize the latest in development technologies and highlight the state-of-the-art capabilities of Canadian studios,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.
Players can look forward to:
• Cross Play on the PS3 and Vita
• Console-oriented RTS action
• A single player campaign as well as a strategy-based multiplayer
• The return of favorite characters such as Professor Tycoon, Ernest, Dr. Brainhov and, of course, hordes of silly zombies
• Sharp graphics powered by Unreal Engine 3
Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge is expected to launch in early 2013. Check out screenshots from the game here.
