Maximum Games has launched the free multiplayer open beta of its upcoming team-based shooter Dead Alliance, running from July 27th – July 31st. The open beta invites players to turn the undead into weapons against their enemies in three intense game modes – Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill and the MOBA-inspired Attrition mode – across three zombie-plagued maps.
According to the press release, Dead Alliance aims to raise the stakes of competitive shooters with the advent of zMods, zombie-controlling tech that can be used to strategically strike, swarm, flank, block, distract and surprise opponents in the heat of battle. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where teams of warring military factions fight for control of humanity’s last resources.
At launch, Dead Alliance will feature a variety of single-player and 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Attrition, King of the Hill, Capture and Hold, Free for All and Solo Survival.
Dead Alliance is expected to officially release on August 29th, and those interested can download the free open beta from here.
