A team-based shooter, Dead Alliance from Maximum Games and Illfonic (Friday the 13th: The Game) is releasing on August 29 for $39.99 USD, but if you don’t want the single-player content, you can buy the Dead Alliance: Multiplayer Edition for $24.99 USD.
Only available on the North American PlayStation Store at the moment, the Dead Alliance: Multiplayer Edition disclaimer says, “This is the multiplayer only version of the game. Does not include single player content.” The listing also says that the download size is a minimum of 4GB, PlayStation Plus is required for online play, and you’ll receive seven Avatars as a pre-order bonus.
The complete edition of Dead Alliance is also on the PlayStation Store, priced at $39.99 USD. Pre-ordering gets you the seven Avatars and the Rapid Dominance pack.
Full details on what the single-player content entails weren’t included in the listing, but a previous description for Dead Alliance said:
Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where military bases are humanity’s last city-states, Dead Alliance pits warring teams of players against each other for survival in a world ravaged by the zombie plague. It features a variety of single-player and 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Free for All, King of the Hill, and Capture and Hold, as well as the MOBA-inspired Attrition mode and Solo Survival mode.
If you want to try Dead Alliance before launch, the Open Beta begins on July 27.
Do you think more companies should sell multiplayer separately?
