Glu Mobile has just announced that Contract Killer Zombies 2 will be headed to the Google Play Store later this week. The sequel to the original (which, in turn, was originally a spin-off) will bring a lot of great new changes and features, including things like a survival mode, rankings tracking with leaderboards, multiple types of missions and more.

You assume the role of heroine Evelyn this time around, and you move her around from the third person perspective in an open world that’s yours for exploring. At your disposal are a number of weapons and combat skills to take on the many different zombified enemies who will be throwing themselves at you to find their next feast of brains with a side of blood.

In typical Glu Mobile fashion the game will feature what looks to be some pretty great graphics (well, for mobile standards anyway) so this will be one that many will want to check out. It’ll be free to download, but expect in-app purchases to entice you to use real currency to help you get the weapons and upgrades you need to help fight off the zombie apocalypse.

Unfortunately there’s no concrete date set just yet, but we’re told that “this week” is a definite goal so keep an eye out for it on the Google Play Store. In the meantime, be sure to watch a quick trailer above and check out the first game in this awesome new series to get an idea of what you’re in store for.
