PikPok’s most ambitious event yet arrives just in time for Halloween
NEW ZEALAND, Wellington, October 24, 2019 – Leading games publisher PikPok® today announced they will launch their Tempest live event for smash hit videogame Into the Dead® 2 beginning from midnight on 25 October UTC. PikPok began teasing the event and unveiled a trailer last week:
Beginning 25 October (UTC) and running through November 1, Tempest follows the story of father and daughter Hector and Kayla as they journey through the zombie apocalypse. When a raging storm strikes, they must navigate a treacherous environment that includes a flooded river, all while evading and eviscerating the hungry hordes of the undead. With safe spaces a scarce commodity, they are forced to decide who among the other humans they can trust, and where the greatest danger lies.
PikPok’s original titles Into the Dead and Into the Dead 2 have amassed over 100 million downloads since the series launch in 2013. In Into the Dead 2, players journey through the zombie apocalypse in a race to save their family. Armed with an arsenal of powerful weapons, players must fend off ever-increasing zombie threats while crossing treacherous terrain. The Tempest event is the latest in a series of narrative-driven events that have included original stories set in and expanding the world of Into the Dead including Frostbitten, Divided, and Untamed, as well as themed events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters.
Tempest presented by Into the Dead is available on October 25 (UTC) for download on App Store and Google Play and will run for a limited time until 1 November (UTC).
