'Burn Zombie Burn' (PS3) World Tour 2009 Announced

by Rainier on Oct. 6, 2009 @ 6:21 p.m. PDT

Set across six classic American horror movie-inspired levels, Burn Zombie Burn is a third-person shoot-'em-up in the classic coin-op tradition featuring next-gen gameplay mechanics, and possessing that "one-more-go" addictiveness that defines all of the great shooters.

You play Bruce – an average every-day Joe who was looking forward to some ‘quality time’ with his girlfriend Daisy. In true B-movie style their Saturday night is ruined by an invasion of zombies. Set across six classic American horror movie inspired levels, Burn Zombie Burn is a third-person shoot-em-up in the classic coin-op tradition featuring next-gen game play mechanics, and possessing that ‘one-more-go’ addictiveness which define all of the great shooters.

The aim of the game couldn’t be simpler; shoot, burn and blow up as many brain munching zombies as possible using a variety of classic zombie killing weapons before they overwhelm you. Use fire to build up your multiplier and then destroy zombies en masse with explosives to increase that oh-so-important leaderboard high score. But beware! A burning zombie is a faster zombie – burn too many and they will burn you!

Burn Zombie Burn is frantic, arcade gaming at its best, delivering humour and bloody zombie violence in copious amounts!.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 6, Burn Zombie Burn! players who synch their consoles after achieving a high score ranked on the Secret Lab Level (Freeplay mode) leaderboard will be automatically entered for a chance to win an eerie European vacation, exploring two of the world's most famous tombs: the catacombs of Paris and Valley of the Kings in Egypt.The player who posts the highest score in the Burn Zombie Burn! Secret Lab level on Freeplay mode from Tuesday, Oct. 6 through Monday, Nov. 2 will be rewarded with the eight-night vacation package.

The winning player and a friend will be swept off to Paris, where they will spend three nights at the Aida Opera Hotel and visit the Catacombs de Paris, a labyrinth of tunnels covered entirely in the skulls and bones of 18th century Parisians, and Pere Lachaise Cemetery, eternal home to the likes of Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. If there are zombies to be found in France, the master zombie-killer who wins this tour is sure to find them at these
eerie historic locations.

Once Paris has been cleared of any undead, it will be off to Egypt, where the winner will stay at the Mercure Hotel in Luxor, and spend five days exploring ancient Egyptian history with tours of the Valley of the Kings, final resting place of King Tutankhamun, and Hatshepsut Temple, a mortuary temple dedicated to the sun god.
Additional details and official contest rules can be found on the PlayStation website, and the Burn Zombie Burn! website.
