'The Hungry Horde' (Vita) Announced - Screens & Trailer

Lead a horde of zombies on a manic mission to expand the ranks of the undead and destroy humanity.

Chase, corner and infect humans to grow your horde and stop it being nuked by the military. Herd through a variety of locations, causing damage and grabbing brains to power up your horde’s human-chomping abilities. Battle the clock and attempt to trash the planet in this highly addictive, run-till-you-die zombie rampage – one game and you’ll be “turned”!

You start the game off controlling a couple of wayward zombies. Every time you bite a human they join your ever-increasing horde, until you’re controlling whole streets full of the undead. Unfortunately, rampaging through the streets eating brains is always going to grab someone’s attention, and sensing the danger to the population the government has decided to do the only sensible thing they can: quarantine the area and nuke you. So it’s a race against the clock to gather a big enough horde to smash down any human defenses and take on armed guards, tanks and any other opposition that gets between you and those tasty brains.

The Hungry Horde is packed with extra features and content to discover and unlock, like the zombie creator or the boombox mode, but the thing we’re really pleased with is the minigames. Each one feels like a standalone game in its own right. In The Hungry Horde, where you play as a zombie, playing an arcade game where he’s playing a human, shooting zombies. How terribly meta! Then of course there’s “Conga Zombies,” which is about… well… conga dancing zombies.
