Pre-orders open fire today, November 17th, for arcade on-rails shooter Railbreak on Xbox Series X|S!  Immerse yourself in good ol’ classic shooting action just in time for the Holidays when Railbreak officially launches on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on December 22nd!

How do our heroes detox after a stressful week of surviving a zombie apocalypse? The stars of Dead Drop Studios’ upcoming Outbreak: Shades of Horror, Lydia and Hank, enjoy an entertaining night out to test a hot new arcade game! What’s better than slaughtering zombies day in and day out? Laying waste to bright pink ones with heavy artillery, of course!

Collect ammo and blast your way out across seven unique scenarios! Enjoy a deliciously corny and fully-voiced adventure in Story, practice individual levels and secure the best rank in Score Attack, and take on a never-ending horde of zombies in Onslaught! In all modes, special and varied enemy monsters ensure Railbreak stays rotten – we mean fresh! 

Strap up and play your way with optional co-op support and customizable controls including optional support for Sinden Lightguns on PC platforms! Choose from multiple difficulty settings so that even the fairest summer child or the most rugged arcade veteran can leave the undead resting in pieces. Unlock seven playable characters with distinctive load-outs to really shake-up your playthrough!

With the latest technology courtesy of Unreal Engine 5, Railbreak steps up the arcade experience with delightfully disgusting visuals; volumetric lighting, stunning weather effects, and more will dazzle you while you explore diverse environments. Be careful where you shoot! Railbreak’s fully-featured dismemberment system isn’t just for show; taking out certain limbs can either help or hinder your chances of survival!

From the Developer:

“We created Railbreak to be the ultimate throwback arcade shooter with waves upon waves of creepy creatures for you to destroy,” says Evan Wolbach, co-founder of Dead Drop Studios. “With so many options and means to enjoy Railbreak’s nostalgic and simple-to-learn but tough-to-master gameplay, anyone can jump in and rain down sweet, sweet carnage on Cypress Ridge’s newly unwelcome guests.”

Get those trigger fingers ready when Railbreak calls in the big guns for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on December 22nd at an MSRP of $19.99 USD. International pricing may vary. Pre-order Railbreak now on Xbox Series X|S to get locked and loaded for launch!
