Dead End Job Release Date Blue Background

After a yearlong wait since its original announcement, the Dead End Job release date has been announced! This spooky twin-stick shooter will finally be making its way to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on Friday, December 13, 2019.

In Dead End Job, you take on the role of Hector Plasm. Hector is an employee of Ghoul-B-Gone, an extermination company that are the experts in controlling paranormal pests! As various locales have become haunted, it's up to you to deal with the problem!

That's not all, though! You're working for a company, after all, so you want to get the best performance possible! Every captured ghost and rescued bystander adds an additional charge to your invoice at the end of the level, increasing your company's profits and making your boss that much happier. Now, you'll be able to get this game on the last Friday the 13th of the year according to a news post on the game's Steam Community page.

Play Couch Co-Op on the Dead End Job Release Date

While some of you out there might not be afraid of no ghosts, a fair few folks may not be brave enough to take on this task alone. Thankfully, you'll be able to play couch co-op with your friends on the Dead End Job release date.

Console players will have to be in the same room to enjoy this game, but PC players on Steam will be able to take advantage of the newly-launched Remote Play Together feature; this new Steam client feature from Valve will allow you to play local co-op games over the Internet.

If Dead End Job sounds like your kind of jam, you'll be able to get your hands on it for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch when it launches on December 13, 2019. No price has been announced just yet. For now, you can add Dead End Job to your wishlist on Steam. Check out the game's Apple Arcade Trailer below to see it in action!
