- Preorder Railbreak today
Hello Survivors! I’m Evan Wolbach, co-founder of Dead Drop Studios. We’re excited to share explosive details about our upcoming on-rails arcade shooter, Railbreak! This is our first ever game built in Unreal Engine 5, and it’s taking aim at Xbox Series X|S just in time for the Holidays. Get ready for zombie-blasting carnage that’s as gorgeous as it is frenzied.
An Arcade Shooter for the Modern Age
Although we’re traditionally known for Outbreak, our survival horror thriller series, Railbreak marks our first entry in the under-represented on-rails arcade shooter genre. We’re huge fans of classic arcade games like The House of the Dead and Time Crisis, and Railbreak is built to channel the spirit of those titles and infuse it with modern technology and new, unexpected twists.
Unreal Engine 5 Delivers the Visual Flair and Allows for Shrapnel-Spewing New Gameplay Twists
As this is our first game utilizing Unreal Engine 5, the graphical leap over our previous titles is astronomical. Featuring next-generation garnishes like ray tracing, lumen, and volumetric lighting, Railbreak is a visual feast for the eyes; that is, if you have time to appreciate it while mowing down hordes of zombies! The new tools at our disposal also allow for advances in gameplay; our dismemberment physics allow players to strategically minimize zombie attacks, and the improvements in processing power also massively scale up the enemy count, making this game more frenetic than anything we’ve made before.
Spread the Lead Alone or with a Friend in Three Distinct Game Modes
One important similarity to our previous games is support for optional two-player co-op in all modes. You and a friend can play through the very cheesy and fully voiced Story, test your skills in Score Attack complete with rankings, and take on an endless challenge in Onslaught. All modes can be played across a variety of difficulty settings, so regardless of if it’s your first time playing an on-rails shooter or if you’re an arcade veteran, you experience the game the way you want to.
Strapped with More Action Than You Can Shake a Boomstick at
Railbreak is jam packed with content: we have seven unique scenarios, tons of zombies and enemy variations, multiple weapons, and a bevy of unlockable characters each with their own loadouts. The game is maximized for replayability; whether you want to try achieving a higher rank on an individual level or you want to relax and pass some time with a friend, Railbreak has the action you crave.
Show the undead swarms you mean business when Railbreak launches for Xbox Series X|S on December 22nd. You can equip yourself for battle early when pre-orders begin on November 17th. Can you rise up to the retro challenge, or will the savage specters bite you to bits?
