Square Enix has announced their upcoming game, “Deadman’s Cross,” a free-to-play, mobile sequel to the recently released “Guardian Cross.” The new game is set in the midst of a zombie apocalypse where the zombies, known as Deadmen, have taken over the world as we know it. Players have to hunt the corpses down using a rifle, a deck of cards, and a new first-person perspective.  Killing Deadmen will add them to your deck allowing you to use them in future battles.

If the game is at all similar to “Guardian Cross” players will also be able to bolster their decks through the game’s wide selection of microtransactions.

“Deadman’s Cross” will be released on both Android and iOS mobile platforms. . Square Enix has promised a trailer for the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. You can read the press release below:

LOS ANGELES (Sep. 3, 2013) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced the availability of DEADMAN’S CROSS™ a free-to-play, zombie card battle role-playing game. The game is available now for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch® and Android™ devices.

Following on from last year’s release of Guardian Cross®, this new game is set in a world infested with Deadmen, a race of zombies that have devastated the world. Use your rifle to hunt zombies within the time allotted. Acquire the cards of any zombies you defeat and use them to build your own deck.

In “GUARDIAN CROSS”, the player hunts around to collect cards and this unique mechanic will come back to the latest game whilst the hunter’s vision has changed from “top view” to 3D view so that the player can enjoy a brand-new feel from his hunting actions. There are other new systems which have been implemented together with visually impressive zombie cards. With all these additional elements, the new game will have a very different appeal to “GUARDIAN CROSS”.

The game is free-to-play and will be released as a free download this winter for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices. A first-look trailer for DEADMAN’S CROSS will be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, at the Mega Theatre in the SQUARE ENIX booth.
