Voxel Zombies Invade Guncraft for Halloween

Guncraft_Paranoia01

You knew it was only a matter of time before voxel-based multiplayer FPS Guncraft introduced a zombie mode of its own. Well, that mode has now arrived, perfectly timed for this week’s Day of the Dead celebration.

Guncraft‘s free Halloween update has officially gone live as of today, strengthening the game’s catalog of free updates which have already added Team Fortress 2 characters and weapons. This latest update offers new features like admin controls for adjusting match variables, customizable voice packs for skins, and enhanced Gunsmithing allowing for the creation of dual-wielded guns and melee weapons. All that stuff is great, but the main attraction is the new “Zombies vs Humans” B-movie-style Paranoia Mode, which works as follows:

Paranoia Mode – This new mode spawns “Zombie Queens” who remain veiled as humans until they strike. At the start, one player is secretly selected as the Zombie Queen; they appear to be a normal Guncraft soldier but now they have the power to turn any human they kill into zombies with enhanced speed and jumping abilities. The Queens must turn all humans into zombies before the humans revolt to kill them and their minions. Humans must band together, survive the swift zombie horde attacks, and use special abilities to identify the Zombie Queen… but the question becomes, who can be trusted?

Sounds like a fun time, certainly more interesting than the stock co-op zombie survival mode. Plus, it’s a free add-on, and free is never a bad thing.

Guncraft, the game itself, is not free, but for this whole week (Oct. 28 – Nov. 4) you can buy it on Steam for just $7.49, a 50% discount on the regular $14.99 price. Check it out and have fun thwarting the voxel zombie invasion!
