Tencent Games, which includes the developers of the popular PUBG Mobile, announced a new title. This is a role-playing zombie shooter with survival elements called Undawn . The game is being developed on the Unreal Engine 4 for PC and mobile devices running iOS and Android.
Rick Lee, executive producer at Lightspeed & Quantum Studios, commented on the news:
At Undawn, we wanted to create a new type of action that combines the freedom of the open world with RPG elements that would completely change the genre, regardless of platform. The fact that we have created such an amazing project for mobile and PC platforms [like PUBG Mobile] means that even more players around the world will be able to survive the apocalypse together and have a completely new gaming experience in this genre.
In Undawn, players will explore a vast open world teeming with the walking dead and survival rivals. To do this, you will have to collect resources, procure supplies, craft weapons and basic necessities. Together, gamers will be able to build a reliable shelter, break up a farm and establish trade. The developers promise several character classes that will be able to join the free faction and protect the survivors from the zombie hordes.
The release of Undawn is scheduled for late 2021.
