It has recently dawned on me that cutting my blog output from seven to five posts a week has meant I have far more emails cluttering up my 'news' folder on my email. A quick glance and I can see 92 emails sitting there, actually quite daunting! This month I will be writing this monthly news post over three days, so shall see if that results in me managing to get through a bunch of that.
Starting with some video game news, season 3 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War released on April 15th and it brings with some new Zombies content. I have to admit I was hoping for a proper Zombies map, instead there is a fifth map added to the surprisingly enjoyable Outbreak mode. That map is Duga and looks slightly similar to the forest based Ruka, but with a lot more buildings and a gigantic metal frame you can climb. I do like the Outbreak mode, it changes the Zombies experience into something mainly more chilled and relaxed. On the flip side though these maps were never designed with Zombies in mind, as such the environmental details are quite generic. Ok, after that little geek-out onto the proper news.
Lurking Woods released on April 6th from Midnight Releasing and can be found on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo, and Fandango. A traditional sounding story of a group of friends heading away to a cabin for a partying holiday, as always though there is a masked killer there to ruin their plans.
On May 4th Bayview Entertainment are to release Zombie King. This horror stars Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys, Gremlins) and Edward Furlong (American History X, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) and is about a man who, desperate to see his deceased wife again makes a pact with Kaifu - the God of malevolence. In exchange for bringing chaos to Earth the man will become the 'Zombie King' and be reunited with his wife. In this mad situation a group of misfits in a small town must find a way to stop him.
