Milan, Italy. 12th November 2020 - 505 Games and console developer FunLabs are thrilled to announce 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. 

A brand new trailer, full to the brim with zombie stomping action, has been released to celebrate the launch of UNTURNED. You can watch the trailer on YouTube at the links below

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 defenses 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 ‘deadzones’ 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!

 

Key Features of UNTURNED for PS4 and Xbox One: 

• Massive maps - explore up to 8 sandbox maps by traveling by land, air, and sea  

Craft - create your equipment and structures from supplies you collect

• Power up - upgrade skills in three categories: Offense, Defense, Support

Customise - avatars can be fully cosmetically personalized  

Multiplayer - brave zombies and other foes alone or team up with friends

Split Screen - play locally with a friend in split-screen mode

Compete or ally - attempt to form alliances with other players or take out all the competition  

 

UNTURNED is now available digitally worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, priced at £19.99GBP/€24.99EUR/$24.99USD, from the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store.
