Green Man Loaded and Rigid-Soft today released an unexpected new trailer for the upcoming relaunch of the online zombie game, Lifeless. The game originally released in an Alpha capacity in 2014 developed under the Unity Engine. The Swedish development team at Rigid-Soft listened to community feedback and felt that the Unity Engine was not capable of delivering the full experience they wanted to create and made the decision to start afresh and work on the same ideas under the much more powerful Unreal Engine 4.
Developing the game under a newer engine will provide players with more immersive environments, better character and weapon models, smoother framerates and more in-depth gameplay mechanics. We’ve only been given a glimpse of what’s to come with today’s new trailer but check it out below before comparing it to the 2014 version, the difference is impressive to say the least.
