One more video for Wanted: Dead is here to show off how messed up the world we will have to navigate is in Wanted: Dead
Only one more sleep, potential, before the launch of Wanted: Dead on February 14th here. If you will be able to sleep, that is, since there has been a whole lot of hype built up around the game by 110 Industries and Soleil to get us all in on what it has to offer. We have seen enemies, we have seen the finishers, now we get to see more of the world we will be roaming around in. A world that feels like it could be where the real one is heading towards, but with a bit more of the over-the-top feel instead. That is how Wanted: Dead has always felt to me, but sometimes that is how the world feels out there.
In the new video here, we get to see a bit on the Great War that brought the world close to an end in Wanted: Dead and brought the new Super Powers into…well…power. All of that and the reasons we are taking up the role of Hannah Stone to lead the Zombie Unit in our hack-n-slash ways. Okay, maybe not lead, but be a solid member of it while still leading the way in the bloody combat we will have in Wanted: Dead. All over the place with the Hong Kong police and various other cast of characters. Most of whom we have seen before, but for those that need a reminder before tomorrow, here is a fun new look at the game and all of the big personalities we are going to be riding along with.
Wanted: Dead — Game World Overview
110 Industries gets you up to speed with an action-packed Wanted: Dead Game World Overview trailer (feat. Stefanie Joosten) in preparation for its launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, & PC this Valentine’s Day.
Developed by Japanese studio Soleil, Wanted: Dead shows that there’s much more than meets the eye in the new trailer that dives deeper into the story of Wanted: Dead and who we will meet along the way. Vivienne Niemantsverdriet the multi-disciplinary Olympian turned celebrity chef, turned master gunsmith, and now working for the Hong Kong police force, gives us a quick tour of the Wanted: Dead story so far.
With the Great War ending the world we once knew, the super powers that ruled over us have now become obsolete. This made way for a powerful force called Dauer Synthetics, with the police force in Hong Kong forming part of their private security. This is where the Zombie Unit come in as an elite team working outside the purview of the traditional police force. Master gunsmith Vivienne works for them alongside Cortez, Doc, Herzog, Captain Simmons and Detective Stone.
Players will take on the role of the elegant but deadly Lt. Hannah Stone, stepping into a dark and dangerous vision of cyberpunk Hong Kong as leader of the Zombie Unit. Stone’s superior hack-n-slash combat skills combine style and substance, delivering cool slow-motion sequences and bone-shattering, limb-severing mechanics.
Wanted: Dead serves up a truly hardcore experience where the fights are not for the faint of heart. Dealing out a brutal blend of merciless melee sword combat, thrilling gunplay and a unique limb severing system, Wanted: Dead is developed by talent behind the Ninja Gaiden series and carries that series’ DNA into this love-letter to the sixth generation of consoles.
Have you been properly hyped up for the launch of Wanted: Dead or did you need this last little push to make it for you? Will it be the next big title in the hack-n-slash games out there or will its weirdness be something that holds it back for you? Is it weird that with the name of the unit being the Zombie Unit, we only really see Hannah taking down human enemies that are trying to stop things? Sound off in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all as you so wish to do. More for Wanted: Dead will be on the site as soon as we can get it out there. Please keep checking back in for all of those updates and everything else we have to offer along the way.
