A new horror game called Operation Dead Man offers a chilling twist on the Covid-19 pandemic. Set in an alternate 2020 where quarantines fail and the world descends into chaos, players will battle zombies and fight to survive the downfall of civilization. The trailer caught my attention and was found in a upcoming game compilation. The video comes courtesy of GameV.
Developed for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, Operation Dead Man aims to provide a cinematic, AAA-quality single-player and co-op experience. The game features large-scale maps and environments that visually decay into a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
According to the Steam description, “Operation Dead Man takes place in an alternate timeline of events dating back to the lockdown of 2020. However, this time the world and the infection has taken a turn for the worst.” Players take part in a “failed attempt at containment” as the infection spreads rapidly worldwide.
