    ZOMBIE RISING 1.26

    MAP SUMMARY: Zombie Rising is a Diablo inspired Dungeon Crawler map, players must escort the Priestess through a landscape invested with foul undead and powerful bosses.

    Some may remember this map from years ago but I have decided to edit this map to its full potential, Harald even did a live cast of this map while it was in alpha mode and it has come a long way since then.

    The map is highly challenging and includes a mix of hero siege defence quests, Boss battles and typical dungeon crawler/hero survival gameplay.

    The setting is a dark and atmospheric land besieged by ravenous undead monsters, you must protect the Priestess through her perilous journey as she navigates this plagued Fantasy realm.

    LORE: The Vampire Princes have launched an attack upon the Empire of man. But as the dark power of the Vampire Lords rise, so too does the light rise to face it…The Priestess holds the key to defeating the undead armies.


    She is infused with the power of Hoeth, the god of Light.


    You are part of an elite group tasked with protecting and escorting her through the waves of zombies sent by the Vampire Lord.


    While the Vampire lord: Vlad von Carstein, (from Rise of the Vampyr) launches an attack on the realm of Talabhiem, his brother: Aurel von Carstien has been sent to hunt down the Priestess and stop her from reaching the King of Talabhiem.


    If The Priestess dies the Kingdom of Talabhiem will surely fall, leaving the undead free to swarm over the whole Empire of Man…




    KEY FEATURES

    NEW ZOMBIES: Unique Zombies types include Infectors, Tanks and Boomers (inspired by Left for Dead).



    BTNPower Gem 2.PNG
    POWER GEMS: Each powerful boss or complete mission grants Power Gems, which can be used at the Gem Trader to customise the attributes of your character.



    BTNHellmode.png
    HELL MODE: The Priestess player can turn on Hellmode for an extra challenge, however this can not be turned off. As far as I know no one has been able to complete the map on Hellmode yet.

    WARNINGS
    - Map unfortunately cannot be played on Mac Computers, for unknown reasons Mac players will desync at the first Village.

    - Sadly, previous versions have been hacked, I have no idea why someone would hack a Players vs Comp map but they have. Map versions follow same convention as usual so always beware of hacked versions.

    I thought this map would not be updated.It seems that the new version still appears.
    Is it the prequel of vampires?

    Yes its the prequel to Rise of the Vampyr, its the story of how the healer (the priestess) got to Talabhiem.

    Id love to see you cast it! But might be worth doing one play before you do as it has high learning curve and a lot of players die at the first scene, you will also want an experienced priestess as well, otherwise you could die early on.

    Yes it was year ago since your cast lol. Hopefully you will find it alot better now than it was back then :-)

    Hellmode makes the zombies harder to kill and deal alot more dmg, so its only for experienced players that really want a challenge. The 1 time we tried Hellmode we all wiped so yea it is quite hard as intended!
