tinyBuild and TALLBOYS have announced a new game to be hitting Steam early access on May 2nd, 2019. Pandemic Express is an exciting, action-packed multiplayer experience which pits 30 players against each other in a race for survival. 30 players spawn into a train station and one is randomly infected with a zombie virus, the zombie player must run around and infect the other players while the human players do their best to escape and make their way to a train. Once they arrive at the train the humans must ride it to safety while zombie players constantly respawn and swarm all over it to try and stop them.
Pandemic Express has DNA made up with bits of pieces of some classic games. It bears some similarities to battle royale games with a huge open world to explore littered with weapons and equipment to help the human players survive. It also bears a striking resemblance to infected game modes/mods found in things like g-mod and Counterstrike which also feature a group of infected players trying to kill a group of human players, turning them against their former comrades. Pandemic Express is a stand-alone experience requiring no previous purchase and with its own distinct art style and themes.
The game is available for early access playtesting right now over at their official website, and you can get your hands on the game over at the Steam page starting from May 2nd. The game is planning on an early access period throughout 2019 to iron out bugs and kinks that come with trying to do something new.
