About Dead Age 2
The newest game in developer Silent Dreams' fan-favorite franchise blends the survival, management, and role-playing game genres with elements of rogue-like gameplay and turn-based combat as players battle to survive the zombie nightmare while rebuilding society. Players will experience a brand new, stand-alone story and all-new features, as they once again brave a world infested with flesh-eating devastation.
Building on the strengths of the original Dead Age — which currently has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam by over 3500 user reviews — players can expect improvements across the board to the mechanics that drew thousands of players to the franchise. Dead Age 2 introduces a new, open world where players can explore unique indoor and outdoor environments, and additional exciting ways to reach over 80 locations including boats, trains, and other vehicles for faster travel. A new, advanced combat system will make the survivors a deadly match against enemies, and an upgradeable 3D base will provide players with the tools they need to survive and thrive, such as a crafting room for creating helpful items and a radio station to help them locate essential supplies.
- A Brave New (Open) World: A new feature for the franchise, players can now freely explore the open-world map, limited only by walking distance as well as the number of resources that will keep them alive until they reach one of the 80 destinations. New indoor locations, including desolate hospitals, dangerous bunkers, eerie diners, and resource-rich army supply stores, as well as a return to the barren wilderness, bring a new depth to the struggle for survival.
- Home, Sweet Home (Base): Dead Age 2 introduces the Advanced Base Management System. Players can increase their chances of survival by assigning tasks to survivors on their team, such as crafting essential items, building and upgrading stations used to improve defense and the quality of life at their base. Growing your base will unlock advanced crafting recipes that will improve craftable items and resource yield.
- We're All In This Together: As the undead apocalypse progresses, new factions of survivors spring up: the merciless Military, the devious Smugglers, and branches of independent civilians who have banded together to survive. Players must visit these factions’ outposts, take on missions and make quick decisions during events to gain their favor (or gain new enemies) through an all-new Faction Reputation System. Gaining the support of the factions will improve trade relations in order to purchase upgraded faction gear and unlock new endings.
- Upgraded Combat: A new and improved combat system allows players to strategically place their combatants with new front and back row positioning. With the ability to use up to 24 skills and execute powerful knock-back attacks in battle, players are more powerful than ever as they engage deadly flesh-eating zombies and other survivors hell-bent on taking their resources for themselves. Random events now appear in 3D, adding a terrifying layer to the spine-chilling battles.
