There are more dead to block in this Dead Block DLC map pack


Just when you think there aren't any more undead to deal with, more come out of the woodwork. The same goes for themed video games, apparently, as a new map pack adding four new levels to Candygun Games' zombie-defense title Dead Block is currently available for download on Xbox Live Arcade.

240 MS Points ($3) will grant players access to the More Dead to Block map pack, which includes a Turkish Bath, a Slaughter House, a Motel and an Office Building level. Each map is playable both in single-player and via three-player online co-op. We'd suggest the latter -- facing the undead alone is kind of like covering all of your clothes in A-1 and taking a weekend getaway to Cannibal Town.

Admittedly, Cannibal Town does have a sweet rollercoaster.

Budapest, Hungary –August 17, 2011–Digital Reality and developer Candygun Games today announced the first major downloadable content (DLC) for their zombie defense video game Dead Block on Xbox LIVE® Arcade. The zombie title that has rocked the apocalyptic gaming world to shreds now has four new themed levels, where the town's survivors - Boy Scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster, and no-nonsense meter maid Foxy Jones – are driven deeper into hiding as they use defensive instincts, along with nail guns and hamburger smart bombs, to survive the undead onslaught.

The freshly served up DLC includes four new maps of zombie defense fun including a Motel, a Turkish Bath, an Office Building, and a Slaughterhouse. Available in either single or multiplayer modes, players can choose to defend themselves on their own or with a motley crew of up to four players. With each new level survivors will find challenging enemy setups, calling for creative destruction of zombie hordes, along with customized intro cut scenes and updated leaderboards.

Dead Block DLC is now available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 240 Microsoft Points. Set in the U.S. during the idyllic 1950s, Dead Block takes players to a simpler time when a gallon of gas cost a few pennies, the "golden age" of cinema was in full swing, and that new (and apparently insanely evil) craze called rock 'n roll swept the nation-and caused an apocalyptic musical plague to turn the deceased into the walking dead!

Dead Block is now available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points and on PlayStation Network for $9.99. For more information, please visit the Dead Block website at, follow the characters on Twitter, subscribe to our YouTube channel and 'Like' the game on Facebook.
