Far Cry 5’s Dead Living Zombies expansion is lurching out next week

It’s Romeo and Juliet. But with zombies. And, for whatever reason, Romeo is a B-movie mega-monster.

Described in the trailer as the entirely unprecedented “Return of the Living Dead meets Bridges of Madison County” you didn’t know you’d always wanted, Far Cry 5’s third DLC introduces the hideously reanimated corpses of Montana’s dead grannies and granpappies as the game’s new bad guys, in a sort of meta film plot featuring campy film director Guy Marvel. Also, is that a Blood Dragon? It’s a Blood Dragon. THE BLOOD DRAGONS ARE BACK.

Dead Living Zombies launches on 28 August, sold separately or as a part of the Far Cry 5 season pass.
