Zombasite (PC) Announcement - Soldak Logo

Drox Operative developer Soldak Entertainment has announced their next release, Zombasite.

The infected retain some of their former skills while also developing new powers as the parasite attempts to spread itself to others. Players will take on the role of a clan leader, alone or with a friend in co-op multiplayer, trying to survive the undead hordes as well as maintain their clan’s numbers by keeping its members from becoming infected. As the leader, players will also be able to negotiate with, trade with, and raid other clans in a constantly evolving game world.
