Today, Maximum Games has officially launched the free multiplayer open beta of the upcoming team-based shooter Dead Alliance, running from today July 27 through July 31 on the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The open beta invites players to turn the undead into weapons against their enemies in three intense game modes – Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill and the MOBA-inspired Attrition mode – across three zombie-plagued maps.
Dead Alliance raises the stakes of competitive shooters with the advent of zMods, zombie-controlling tech that can be used to strategically strike, swarm, flank, block, distract and surprise opponents in the heat of battle. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where teams of warring military factions fight for control of humanity’s last resources. At launch, Dead Alliance will feature a variety of single-player and 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Attrition, King of the Hill, Capture and Hold, Free for All and Solo Survival.
Dead Alliance is expected to officially release on the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on Aug. 29. The game’s Multiplayer Edition via digital download is currently $24.99, while the Day One Edition is available to preorder now for $39.99, containing three bonus early-access loadouts, featuring unique multiplayer weapons and perks.
