OH MY BLOB..is she actually going to write about a video game….yes..yes I am. The game is called Dead Frontier and I was very much hooked on this game for about 2 years. It was one of the first games I actually got a subscription for. Which of course has since lapsed, but I still play it off and on.
Dead Frontier is a free-to-play, browser-based MMOG which takes place in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested setting.
You pretty much give your email, make an account and boom your in. You get the option to make a character, now the options are super limited – but thats fine. Certain avatars have stats and money already or not.
It’s a top down view – the graphics are good for a browser game for sure. There are cycles of night and day. So the background story is pretty basic – big corporation unleashes virus known as N-4, people get infected (All of this taking place in the Summer of 2016, sooooo yeah seeing how the world is doing right now I kinda wouldn’t be surprised at this point) – where the game play starts this has been going on for a while already.
It’s pretty much do what you like – they do offer missions if you want to take them where you are rewarded in some money. Looting is a good way to get supplies and money as well. The zombies start as regular ones and they just get bigger and harder in different zones. (Personally I was not all that good with the dogs. ) There are 5 Safe zones or Outposts. You start at Nastya’s Holdout – thats the beginners area. Don’t be fooled, yeah its for beginners but it can get crazy when a swarn comes. When I first started playing you couldn’t go into any houses and a few larger buildings – but that has since changed.
A large amount of my DF time was spent either being on the Forums or the Market place. The Market place is an area where you could sell or buy stuff ( sorry I know thats a derp statement).. Now when I usually start playing a new game I do a lot of research, watching youtube videos, reading reviews – in all honesty I didn’t really follow any of that.
I’m not good with stats and numbers and what have you – never have been. But I did actually pay a bit of attention in this game.I knew I was never going to get the best of the best of the best – but hey thats cool. All I know for sure was I wanted a P90 machine gun….my god I was in heaven. But of course that raises aggro and there are somethings that go bump in the night that you don’t want to deal with. SO it sometimes came down to close combat – which usually had me with either a Bowie/Kitchen knife and a Luger.
Now the gun raises aggro so you have to be careful when you use it – I have tried lots of different combos – I prefered double knives…..SO if you get a chance check it out for sure.
