Power through hordes of zombies, '90s arcade style, in this on-rails survival horror shooter.

How do our heroes detox after a stressful week of surviving a zombie apocalypse? The stars of Dead Drop Studios’ upcoming Outbreak: Shades of Horror, Lydia and Hank, enjoy an entertaining night out to test a hot new arcade game! What’s better than slaughtering zombies day in and day out? Laying waste to bright pink ones with heavy artillery, of course!

Collect ammo and blast your way out across seven unique scenarios! Enjoy a deliciously corny and fully-voiced adventure in Story, practice individual levels and secure the best rank in Score Attack, and take on a never-ending horde of zombies in Onslaught! In all modes, special and varied enemy monsters ensure Railbreak stays rotten - we mean fresh! 

Strap up and play your way with optional co-op support and customizable controls including optional support for Sinden Lightguns on PC platforms! Choose from multiple difficulty settings so that even the fairest summer child or the most rugged arcade veteran can leave the undead resting in pieces. Unlock seven playable characters with distinctive load-outs to really shake-up your playthrough!

With the latest technology courtesy of Unreal Engine 5, Railbreak steps up the arcade experience with delightfully disgusting visuals; volumetric lighting, stunning weather effects, and more will dazzle you while you explore diverse environments. Be careful where you shoot! Railbreak’s fully-featured dismemberment system isn’t just for show; taking out certain limbs can either help or hinder your chances of survival!

“We created Railbreak to be the ultimate throwback arcade shooter with waves upon waves of creepy creatures for you to destroy,” says Evan Wolbach, co-founder of Dead Drop Studios. “With so many options and means to enjoy Railbreak’s nostalgic and simple-to-learn but tough-to-master gameplay, anyone can jump in and rain down sweet, sweet carnage on Cypress Ridge’s newly unwelcome guests.”

Pre-order Railbreak now on Xbox Series X|S to get locked and loaded for launch!

Key Features:

  • Next-generation arcade experience with cutting edge graphics powered by Unreal Engine 5.
  • Multiple ways to face the undead - Story Mode, Score Attack, and the endless Onslaught Mode!
  • First class support for mouse, keyboard, gamepads, and the Sinden Lightgun.
  • Extreme gore and dismemberment as you tear apart the undead with a massive arsenal of powerful weapons.
  • The cheesiest dialogue and voice acting ever featured in an on-rails shooter.
  • Optional 2-player co-op across the entire game.
