Call of Juarez and Dead Island Riptide creators keep busy. Recently Techland officially announced its latest title - a zombie shooter called Hellraid.

This game was originaly entitled Project Hell. It shows us the struggle of the character (or characters) with hordes of evil spirits.

The game’s developers tell us that Quake and Diablo projects were the inspiration for this new undead slasher. All actions in Hellraid take place in early Middle Ages, when black magic and scary supernatural creatures are a constant.

Lets take a look at some Hellraid screenshots to get a feel for what we can expect:

A first-person slasher that focuses on both single player but also aims to provide very strong co-op. The player will customise their weapons, magic, and combat style and have to fight denizens from hell. Claiming that the Hellraid combat system is far from the repetitive click fest of other melee FPS games, we believe it will be more along the lines of War of the Roses sophisticated approach to melee, where timing and weapon choice is everything.

For the time being the devs are working solely on a PC version of the game, but there is a strong possibility that it will be released for consoles as well.

Hellraid may be with us later this year, but nothing is certain yet.

Zombie shooters have been very popular over the past handful of years is there room for another and if so what do you think this one will offer that will help it stand out from the horde? Tell us below!

well as long as they would provide epic worlds like that of Painkiller minus the overly repetitive and tiring gunplay, it would be okay i guess, provided they incorporate a true horror experience, otherwise it'd be indeed dead island in the dark ages.
