Are you looking to survive the zombie apocalypse once more? How about you do it from the comfort of your own sofa? Well, UNTURNED is coming to Xbox One and PS4 and today 505 Games have confirmed the release date.
After previously launching on PC rather successfully, UNTURNED will now be coming to Xbox One and PS4, with a November 12th 2020 release date confirmed.
Created by those at Smartly Dressed Games, and picked up by the console devs at FunLabs and the publishing team of 505 Games, UNTURNED is an open-world survival sandbox affair, one in which we’ll get the chance to assume the role of a survivor. And as with most ‘survivors’ we’ll be dropped into the zombie-infested ruins of modern day society, left to work with friends and forge alliances to remain among the living.
In order to find success in UNTURNED we’ll need to search out supplies – clothes, food and weapons – as well as go on the scavenge, grabbing as many resources like wood and metal as possible in order to create strongholds and defenses to fend off the zombie horde. At all times though we’ll need to keep an eye on health levels, boosting it by finding food and water, as well as checking on radiation levels.
There are going to be other things to keep an eye on too. Getting hit by a zombie or entering ‘deadzones’ without the proper hazmat protection will have an impact on health, but thankfully as progress is made, experience points will be earnt that can then in turn be used to upgrade matters and improve survival chances.
When UNTURNED drops onto Xbox One and PS4, it’ll come with a host of specific console enhancements including a redesigned camera system, enhanced physics and graphics as well as specific console controller support to improve the player experience. Expect to find private servers too, letting anyone create their own persistent server where they can play with their friends only or open it up to anyone in the community. That is where UNTURNED threatens to come into its own too – buddying up with friends, local hosting and split screen functionality mean you won’t have to face the undead alone.
Some of the key features of UNTURNED on Xbox One and PS4 include:
- 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
With a MSRP sitting at £19.99, UNTURNED is certainly going to be one to keep an eye out for. We’ll be sure to remind you when it arrives and should hopefully have a full review coming along too.
