'Dead Dozen' Will Be Adding Co-op Mode Next Month

by Rainier on March 22, 2018 @ 11:39 a.m. PDT

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.

In April, Dead Dozen will be getting a brand new co-op mode "Escape" where you team-up with 3 of your friends to beat the various challenges and defeat AI-controlled enemies in your quest to escape from the depths of the mysterious pyramid in the heart of Siberia.

But beware, one of your friends can be infected…

"The game became available on March 7, 2018 on Steam Early Access. We made several key mistakes at the start, but we nevertheless do not regret about it. We still hope for the comeback of Dead Dozen and continue to support it - we release updates 2 times a week, and as described above now we are working on the new mode."

Dead Dozen is currently available on Steam Early Access for $14.99.

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.
