The folks at Madfinger Games have offered up another holiday-themed update for its zombie shooter in the Google Play Store. I’m talking about Dead Trigger, of course, and today’s upgrade brings a lot of new content that fits with the theme of Christmas.

For starters, you’ll get a new arena that’s fixtured up in the North Pole. Here, you’ll take on waves of enemies who are led by the new boss that’s also coming along for a ride in his deadly sleigh — Zanta. Yes… Zanta. With a Z. I assume the “Z” is to play to the fact that he’s a zombified version of Santa, but if there was some other meaning then it went way over my head.

Other than that, a new grenade launcher can be added to you weapons inventory, new story missions can be played and Madfinger is offering special pricing offers on various weapons. You’ll also be able to play your way to a Dead Trigger t-shirt in a new underground puzzle. Beyond new content, Madfinger made a key tweak to the mini-mortar in order to make it even more deadly than it already was. You can’t be too mad about that.

As usual, the game is free for all to download but you’ll be urged to help fight the zombie apocalypse with tools and weapons that you buy using in-app purchases. Still, the game is totally playable without much of that so you should be downloading this with the quickness. Head to the Play Store for the upgrade.
