'Dead Dozen' Details Different Roles - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 27, 2017 @ 8:20 a.m. PST

Dead Dozen is a multiplayer action/horror game where you turn into a ghoul after your death as a human.

Loot, barricade and cooperate when you play as a Survivor or infiltrate, infect and eat your former human friends when you play as a Ghoul.

Previously, Fntastic studio worked on The Wild Eight, which they sold to their publisher.

The game is played by two teams - Survivors and Ghouls. At the beginning of the round, among 12 players, one random player becomes a Ghoul Leader - the most dangerous Ghoul, whose goal is to hunt the Survivors and coordinate the actions of those who turned into Ghouls. Whether you fight for your life as a Survivor, or have already gone over to the side of the Ghoul Leader - you need to know your role:

Playing As A Survivor:

  • Every Survivor who died or was infected in combat becomes a Ghoul.
  • Victory conditions: Kill all Ghouls, bringing to zero the counter of their respawns, or hold out until the end of the game round timer.
  • No matter what, try to stay alive: Collect weapons, ammo and items to confront beastly enemies.
  • Use your brain while you still have it: Barricade doors and passages, move objects to construct obstacles and prevent Ghouls from getting closer.
  • Empower yourself: Access special items and utilize them to your advantage in combat.

Playing As A Ghoul

  • Each perished Ghoul respawns again, reducing the total number of respawns.
  • Victory conditions: Kill or infect all Survivors.
  • Accept your next incarnation: Infect and spread the panic among survivors.
  • Find new ways to achieve new goals: Destroy brittle walls and break the doors on your way.
  • Get the best from being undead: Gain the Blood Lust and apply the special abilities you have acquired.

Scheduled for January 8, 2018, Early Alpha Access gives you exclusive builds and eventually a copy of the full game. It's intended to give you a behind-the-scenes look at Dead Dozen and how it will morph into a final game. The Alpha 1 will include core game loop alongside a lot of the mechanics, 1 map, multiplayer, matchmaking, good graphics. Also be prepared for bugs and various glitches.
