Sony Ericsson in conjunction with N3V Games today announced the release of the eagerly anticipated survival horror ‘Dead on Arrival’ (DOA). The Android game is available exclusively on the Xperia PLAY. 

Featuring top-down 3D gameplay and a full arsenal of weapons to fight back against the un-dead horde, the stunning graphics allow players to experience the battle for survival in full gory detail, whilst comic-style cut scenes tell the story behind the mayhem. 

Optimized for the Xperia PLAY, the fast paced action survival shooter pits players against massive waves of the undead based inside a hospital. Players can purchase time and weapons, and board up doors and windows to defend themselves against the hordes as they aim to finish the fight. The game also offers a tutorial to help players get to grips with the gameplay. 

N3V Games Studio Head Paul Olsen said: “It all started about a year ago with ‘Call of Duty: Nazi Zombies’. The gameplay is very addictive with the replay-ability, and we wanted to create something along the same lines as this for the mobile platform. The third person top down view with thumb stick controls fits very well into DOA. And, after spending countless hours playing games like Minigore, Gorilla Bob, iDracula and Alive 4-Ever we put our final design into development to create Dead on Arrival.” 

Commenting on the exclusive release Spyridon Gousetis, Head of Marketing Unit, Sony Ericsson Middle East, said: “The Xperia PLAY is the first PlayStation certified phone. And, as our gaming-centric smartphone, we always try to ensure that we can deliver the best titles for our users.”
