The sequel to one of the most graphically rich zombie games for mobile is almost upon us, and we finally have a release date to look forward to. I’m talking about Dead Trigger 2, the zombie mayhem first person shooter from Madfinger Games that has us all extra prepared for any real-life zombie apocalypse that might occur (oh, it’s going to happen, folks).

The game is launching October 23rd, which ironically is just in time for Halloween. The original Dead Trigger took a more traditional story approach when it comes to zombie shooters — brain-obsessed undead look to munch on you for no good reason, and you are doing everything you can to stop the growing threat.

The sequel is more or less the same, except it’s shaking things up a tad as it is poised to take place in “real-time.” We weren’t sure what that meant at first, but Madfinger used this week’s ongoing Tokyo Games Show as an opportunity to reveal more:

With each following update, the action will shift to varying locations and continents with the concrete development influenced directly by the participation of players. The action will be global, players will fight against local zombies in Shanghai, London or in the middle of the desert far away in Africa.

With that, Madfinger also dropped a new video on us. It’s the first minute of the game’s opening sequence, which we’d say is deserving of some peeled eyes. Catch your glimpse above, and be sure to circle October 23rd on your calendar if you’re itching for some more zombie genocidal action on your mobile device.
