Psyop Games and Illfonic have announced a new zombie shooter – Moving Hazard. Set fifty years after the Zombie Apocalypse, the game is a team based competitive first person experience where the zombies become the weapon.
Humanity has broken up into separate groups of military factions at war with each other. The zombie’s are more than just a threat, they are tactical advantage.
Game Synopsis: In Moving Hazard, zombies are not simply an enemy to be sought out and exterminated; they are a dynamic part of the battleground which you must navigate, manipulate, and ultimately weaponize in order to defeat your human foes. In addition to having a selection of military-grade assault weapons at their disposal, players will also need to take advantage of technology specifically evolved to allow them to control the zombies that they encounter by attracting, repelling, sedating, angering, or booby-trapping them, as well as a wide variety of additional tactics. You’ll even be able to parachute a box of zombies down onto your enemies.
Moving Hazard features realistic weapons and a military approach to using tactical equipment and skillstreaks to weaponize and herd zombies to the player’s liking in order to gain the upper hand. On top of classic frags, smoke grenades, and claymores, equipment at your disposal in Moving Hazard includes the Pheromone Attractor Molotov (aka The PAM), which make any infected hit become frenzied and hunt down enemies for a short period of time. The Chaos Grenade will stun your enemies while frenzying close by zombies, making for some interesting zombie kills. The Templar will broadcast a unique signal that zombies truly despise, turning them in their tracks to head away from it as fast as possible. These items and more (turrets, infected ammo, distractors, and onward) will allow your team to greatly shift the flow of each map and present tactical options not found in any other squad-based shooter.
Moving Hazard is currently one year into production and is slated for release sometime in 2016. The game will feature six multiplayer maps with game modes like Team Deathmatch, Scavenger, King of the Hill and more.
