Undead Horde 2: Necropolis brings more top-down mayhem to mobile

10tons’ fantastic top-down battler Undead Horde is getting a sequel. Titled Undead Horde 2: Neceopolis, the Dysmantle developers are aiming to one-up themselves once again with this ambitious follow-up. 

Originally released in 2019, it’s been three years since Undead Horde graced mobile gamers. Are you excited for this new instalment in the series? 

Undead Horde 2: Necropolis comes to mobile and more 

Announced for mobile, PC and consoles, Undead Horde 2 aims to be a massive sequel to its predecessor. With bigger crowds, more enemies, more complex maps and more, this is a true sequel. 

The big mechanic of Undead Horde is its revival mechanic. After you kill an enemy, you’ll be able to resurrect it to fight alongside you. In the sequel, you’ll be able to revive hundreds of corpses to join you in your quest. 

One shot of the new game’s trailer shows a massive horde of followers travelling down an alleyway. It’s a truly impressive feat of AI crowds on mobile, maybe even rivalling TABS Mobile

In the sequel, there’s a lot more strategy to the resurrection mechanic. You’ll now be able to use a new Raise Wheel to select which class of fallen foes you wish to revive. Maybe you’ll be able to get enough small mobs to overwhelm the enemy. On the other hand, a few strong allies could be just as effective.

What about the Necropolis? 

In Undead Horde 2: Necropolis, your entire purpose revolves around the subtitle. In the sequel, humans have broken into the Necrpolis, stealing all of the souls. It’s your job to not only rebuild, but also to repopulate the house of the dead. 

The introduction of the Necropolis adds a lot more depth to the game. By building up the undead realm, you’ll be able to unlock a host of new abilities to play with. 

Undead Horde 2: Necropolis will launch on PC, console and, of course, mobile next year. Unfortunately, no solid release date has been announced, but we’re excited to raise the virtual dead in 2023.
