Below are the details, to quote: We are proud to announce that Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is launching on PlayStation Store today. Since it's Cross-Play and Cross-Buy, you'll get both PS Vita and PlayStation 3 versions for just $9.99. PlayStation Plus members in the US can pick it up for free!
Here's a quick recap, in case you didn't read our earlier posts. Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is a real-time strategy game. However, it's not your classic RTS with resource gathering, base building and tech-tree climbing.
No, it's pure, unadulterated tactical zombie assault! You've got two zombie packs, a mobile base and a monster at your beck and call, each controlled using a different symbol button on the controller.
In multiplayer mode, both teams start out at the opposite ends of the map. As they move across town toward an inevitable confrontation, they capture buildings that grant diverse benefits. The more buildings you take, the more zombies you have and the more special zombies you unlock.
Trophy hunters out there will be happy to hear that Zombie Tycoon...
