Deep Silver today announced that Suda 51's Killer Is Dead will be making its way to PC come May 9th, available in a new "Nightmare Edition" featuring exclusive content including the new difficulty mode - Nightmare.
• New difficulty mode called Nightmare Mode. In this mode, enemies can only be defeated using the following attacks: Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst, Headshots, so the gameplay requires far more skill and tactics. Players will not be able to use the Final Judgement finisher (QTE mode) to defeat enemies.
• Smooth Operator Pack for console will be included and unlocked after Episode 3.
• Theater Mode - Rewatch cutscenes and get extended background information on characters, helping to unravel the story after your 1st playthrough
Killer Is Dead is set in a not-so-distant future similar to (but not the same as) the world we know now. The player takes control of an executioner named Mondo Zappa who wields a Japanese sword in his right hand and brandishes interchangeable weapons in his left artificial arm. His ultimate goal is to execute various heinous criminals scattered around the world and beyond.
Killer Is Dead will be available for both digital and physical purchase at a price tag of $19.99USD. Check out the trailer and screens below for a look at the new mode in action.
