Lifeless is a multiplayer FPS zombie survival MMO from Rigid-Soft Studios. In Lifeless, players are faced with the grueling task of surviving in a post-apocalyptic zombie world, where resources are scarce but threats are plentiful. It’s a dog-eat-dog world and only the most cunning and cutthroat stand a chance of capitalizing in the aftermath of societal breakdown.
Lifeless promises an on-edge experience where players are constantly on the brink of death. Respawning is not a safety net on which players can rely as permadeath constantly threatens a swift reset to square one. Indeed, a constant state of heightened awareness will be imperative to surviving in a wasteland filled with crazed zombies, NPCs and other human players.
In developing Lifeless, Rigid-Soft Studios understood that to stand apart from the massive selection of zombie survival MMOs (many lackluster, at best) already on the market, they needed to include features not yet seen in the genre. Perhaps the game’s most defining features in that regard are the inclusion of NPCs and questing. Scattered about the world, players can come across various NPC characters. Some will request small tasks be completed while others may be hostile, determined to protect their residence. These are features that serve to keep players engaged and drive unique, exciting and risky narratives.
Also noteworthy is the fortification of structures. With aggressive, intelligent zombies all around and ever hostile players looming about, the importance of a safe place to rest cannot be understated. Players can craft barriers and traps which can be used to enhance defenses on any variety of building featured through out Lifeless’ massive six kilometer world. Your structure will be persistent on that server until another player breaks it down.
Lifeless entered early access on August 25th, 2014. The game is buy-to-play with access purchasable for a one time fee of $25 for Lifeless Standard Edition or $40 for Lifeless Deluxe Edition. Beyond the initial cost, the game is completely free to play with microtransactions available in-game for various materials and weapon skins.
