Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs
PSI GNEZB01, $59.95

Somehow, I don`t know how or why, we survived the onslaught and escaped the pit of hell that was the urban wasteland. They always say the suburbs have it better, right? They weren`t hit nearly as hard; weve found a sturdy house. It still has a roof and everything. We`re hungry, tired, and it`s a struggle to hold back the dead from their nightly assaults, but we`re still here, we`re not going down...yet. You fled the city for the suburbs. It sounded like a good plan, but you`re still fighting for survival in Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs! A new, standalone, cooperative, zombie survival game set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, players in Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs each control their own squad of survivors equipped to the teeth with weapons, food, items, and hope.
