Death Road to Canada released on consoles today
Take the zombie infested journey from Florida to Ontario.
Death Road To Canada tasks players with surviving its brutal, hyper-violent combat with over-the-top, looted weaponry. Scavenging the derelict environment, tough, sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player local co-op mode.
Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way. Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat.
Kepa Auwae, Co-founder of Rocket Games said:
“We’re thrilled to finally release Death Road To Canada for consoles. The game translates incredibly well to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It plays great, the pixel-art looks suitably blood-splattered and local co-op is blast. Onwards to Ontario!
Paul Hann, Managing Director of Ukiyo Publishing added:
“We’re proud to have partnered with two of the most talented studios around, Rocketcat Games and Madgarden, to release Death Road To Canada for consoles. I can’t wait for players to jump in attempt the gruelling, gruesome trip to Canada.”
Death Road To Canada is now available for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch for £11.99 / €14.99 / $14.99. Death Road to Canada originally released on Steam back in 2016 and has since received very positive reviews.
