There’s a new shooter on the block: Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is a free-to-play online multiplayer shooter version of Valve‘s FPS classic Counter-Strike, that is – unsurprisingly – writhing with the undead.
The game was designed to appeal primarily to Asian gaming markets, but the team at Nexon has decided to release it worldwide. It’s more than a little different to the original – you can still play as terrorists and counter-terrorists, but now there’s the option of playing as the living dead, too. (All three teams come with male and female options, by the way.)
Kenny Chang, CEO of Nexon Europe explains:
Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies provides customers with a wide variety of gameplay options, from traditional death-matches on classic maps to zombie boss fights in unexplored territories. We appreciate the feedback that we received during the Open Beta. This feedback has helped us to make important decisions about the future direction of the game, and I really hope that you have a blast playing it.
We understand if you’re not immediately sold on the idea, but why not give it a shot before you write it off? Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is free to download right now via Steam, so you’ve really got nothing to lose! Act fast, and there are five different in-game events to explore, each one offering a wide range of items and weapons to be won.
