While we still don’t have a release date yet for the upcoming zombie-killing game Kingdom: The Blood, at least, we have new two trailers showcasing more action-horror gameplay.
Based on the popular South Korean live-action series on Netflix, Kingdom, the upcoming game has been developed by South Korean videogame studio Action Square. And according to the latest promo content, the studio’s very excited for a global audience to play their RPG Kingdom: The Blood.
Similar to the show, the game will be set during the Joseon Dynasty and will showcase the beauty of Korean culture in various environments, along with hungry zombies, of course. The two new trailers highlight some exciting content for fans. The in-game Korean-style combat looks authentic because a professional Korean sword dancer was hired for the motion capture process. Judging by the trailer, the hard work does come across very well in how the character moves when slashing at zombies and other human enemies.
From what I could understand, there’s customization when it comes to character creation and the types of combat styles your playable character will be able to perform. A level of strategy is involved when trying to defeat certain enemies. And it does look like you might be able to select a female warrior as a playable character.
As far as the game modes are concerned, the Story Mode will follow certain events from the show. There’s also a PvP mode and even a multiplayer boss mode, which sounds very chaotic, but in a fun way. While the title is currently in development, cross-platform compatibility will be available so you can continue playing the game on mobile phones and your PC.
The developer commentary trailer below features producer Hyungseok Kang.
There’s just something about slashing zombies with a sword!

While there’s still no news about a new installment in the live-action series, which premiered back in January of 2019 and has aired two seasons (6 episodes each) and a special (2021’s Ashin of the North), I guess Kingdom fans will have to make do with a video game for now.
