SEATTLE, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DoubleDown Interactive (NASDAQ: DDI), a leading developer of social casino games, is proud to announce the launch of Undead World: Hero Survival, a zombie apocalypse RPG that uses a mixture of idle gameplay and character collecting and upgrading. This launch marks a strategic departure for the company, which has previously focused on the casino genre.

“We’re excited to be expanding DoubleDown’s repertoire, developing mobile games in new genres,” said In Keuk Kim, CEO of DoubleDown. “With idle and RPG gaming, we’ve put together a blend of action-based gameplay with unique and memorable characters. We hope to bring the quality our DoubleDown fans have enjoyed for years to a new audience, and it has been encouraging to see the reception the soft launch of Undead World has received so far.”

In Undead World: Hero Survival, players will collect heroes, level them up, and battle zombies to advance through the main story campaign. Their idle rewards will fill up throughout the day, encouraging players to come back and collect. Players will be able to play with friends and join guilds for more rewards and gameplay benefits. Undead World: Hero Survival offers a variety of game modes, including gauntlet and PvP.

Undead World: Hero Survival is expected to launch worldwide in late September and will be available on iOS and Android devices.
