Sega has served up a slab of fresh details concerning the
second exclusive PS3 level for its forthcoming House of the Dead: Overkill
Extended Cut. Entitled Creeping Flesh, the added mission will see Varla and
Candy from the first Naked Terror bonus mission butchering mutants in a
meat-themed environment guaranteed to turn a few stomachs.
The level will place within a local abattoir which
(predictably) has become overrun with unspeakable horrors, some of which use their
meat bodies as living, oozing shields. Creeping Flesh will also feature what
Sega and the developers at Headstrong Games lovingly refer to as meat walls and
meat tunnels, as depicted below:
In addition to introducing Creeping Flesh's meat-mutants on PlayStation's European Blog, Sega's digital campaigns manager Mike Kebby spoke a little
about the level's main baddie, explaining:
“Meat Katie is armed with a massive cleaver, and has a nasty
habit of flinging large chunks of meat at her intended victims; I imagine Varla
and Candy have had plenty of practice avoiding unwanted meat, so it’s probably
not too much of an issue though. In other words, you’re going to need good
reflexes, steady aim, and perseverance, because this melee monster is going to
take a lot of bullets until she’s beaten.”
The first exclusive level for the PS3, Naked Terror,
resulted in House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut being denied
classification in Australia, making it technically unsellable down under.
Creeping Flesh isn't likely to do anything to fix that.
House of the Dead: Overkill
Extended Cut is scheduled to release in North America on October 25th
and in the UK on October 28th. Check out more images from the
