D3Publisher Inc., a leading Japanese games publisher, along with developer LANCARSE Ltd. today announced the full release of their zombie-filed survival rogue-like action title, Ed-0: Zombie Uprising for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on July 13, 2023. Additionally, the companies have announced pre-orders are now available on all platforms. Anyone who pre-orders Ed-0: Zombie Uprising will unlock a bonus mini-quest titled “Rounding up Thieves”. The game will retail for a MSRP of $29.99 / €28.99.
Ed-0: Zombie Uprising has been in Early Access on Steam since April 2022, and the developers have taken that time to add additional content and address community feedback by implementing major improvements that significantly enhance the overall player experience. Some of those improvements include the quality of combat, difficulty level, and a new option to save mid-game, in addition to regular bug fixing and ongoing changes to gameplay elements. The 1.0 launch also includes a handful of brand-new features, such as new blessings and charms, adaptive triggers for PS5, an EDO shader, which allows the player an option to toggle on a fun “Ukiyoe” style filter, and enough content for over 100 hours of gameplay!
Designed for brutal strategic battles in a rogue-like format, Ed-0: Zombie Uprising takes place in a fictional Edo-era Japan where hordes of hungry zombies have raided the isolated country. No dungeon run will be the same, so players’ judgment will be of the utmost importance, having to face “once-in-a-lifetime” challenges with a wide variety of random elements amid dangerous foes. Ed-0: Zombie Uprising includes various undead enemies, ranging from “newly interpreted” Japanese zombies to foreign invaders born after the “Zombie Industrial Revolution.” Players will unlock more as they play (and succeed) with an increasing number of possibilities to customize builds to their liking—with the option to bump up the level of difficulty to test one’s capability.
