Dead Block Gets Defensive This July

June 29, 2011 Written by Cameron Teague

Dead Block, the upcoming zombie defense game from developer Candygun Games, will be releasing next month on the PlayStation Network and XBLA. Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, the version on the PSN won’t release until July 19th, a full two weeks after the XBLA version.

In Dead Block, the world has been devastated by the birth of rock-n-roll and this music genre caused a zombie apocalypse where the dead have now become the walking dead. As one of only three survivors, players will need to fortify whatever area they are in; boarding up windows, settings up traps, or going toe to toe with the oncoming zombie hoards. The game will feature plenty of items, power-ups, and the ability to upgrade a variety of weapons.

To celebrate the announcement of a release date, Candygun Games have released a new Zombie Elimination trailer, which you can see below.

Dead Block will be releasing for the low price of $9.99 and will hit the PSN on July 19th.
