Darksburg, the upcoming cooperative survival action game from indie French studio Shiro Games of Evoland and Northgard fame, debuts its PvP mode featuring humans versus zombies today, ahead of its playable debut at Gamescom, Aug. 21-24, 2019 in Cologne, Germany.
In Darksburg, a top-down cooperative multiplayer game for PC, players can either choose to rid the titular medieval town of Darksburg of the waves of undead that plague it or team up as zombies to oppose the filthy humans in completing their hopeless mission. Four players can team up to play against the computer, or against four other players in a fast-paced PvP game.
Darksburg features a roster of colorful characters to choose from, each featuring a unique set of skills and backgrounds, from the compassionate (but not overly so) Sister Abigail and the escaped werewolf (and man’s best friend) Varag to the powerful zombie Revenants such as incendiary Witch or the hulking Brute. Teamwork and great reflexes will be the key to survival.
Shiro Games will also present several interesting new projects related to their popular Viking strategy game Northgard at Gamescom, including the upcoming console version, new details on the next major expansion, as well as a (soon to be unveiled) secret game.
