dead effect 2 face your fears on consoles
Monsters, robots, and a terrifying presence on a derelict vessel in space. Of course, it all sounds familiar, but it doesn’t make the premise, or the experience, any less exciting. Making the leap from PC’s and smartphones, Dead Effect 2, from Badfly interactive is arriving on consoles this coming Tuesday, January 17th.
Dead Effect 2 features players as part of a squad of futuristic super-soldiers, that board a derelict space vessel, as all communication is ceased. Of course, everything goes terribly awry, and it’s up to you to shoot lots and lot of bad guys in order to survive. These include zombies, mutants, cyborgs, robots, and many more monstrosities. Over the course of the entire campaign, players will participate in a variety of mission objectives across the ship, unlocking new game modes and challenges.
There is a vast assortment of gear, ranging from pistols to swords to bazookas and much more. There won’t be a single dull moment in dispatching your twisted foes. The overall feeling and atmosphere is clearly inspired by EA Games’space horror franchise, Dead Space, a series that focuses on a lone engineer and his horrendous encounters with a mysterious alien race.
The game was originally released on May 6th, 2016 on Steam and mobile platforms. Currently, it holds a “Mostly Positive” rating in the overall category, with 388 reviews. Many have likened it to other indie-shooters, and even Shadow Warrior 2 from Devolver Digital.
