Into the Dead Updated With Canine Companion Perk, Exploding Barrel Weapon

Screen Shot 2013-06-17 at 11.01.47 AM

Into the Dead, one of the most addicting zombie games to hit Android in the last couple of years, received an update this morning that includes the Canine Companion perk, along with a new exploding barrel during Massacre mode. The canine, as you would expect, will attack zombies during your run should you choose to include it. It’s violent, graphic, and makes you want to have a dog handy in case the real zombie apocalypse ever arrives. The exploding barrel, on the other hand, is used during massacre mode as a means to take out “dozens” of zombies at a time. Both new additions have been in the works since the game launched, but with their arrival we have a new reason to start playing this game again.

Oh, they also introduced a Friends leaderboard through Facebook.

    so weird how this game runs bad on my gs3, but runs like butter on my buddies gs2. Both on max graphics. Its a good game though.

      Seems to run fine on my S3. Not rooted or anything either.

    The new update now gives me full screen ads between every screen… what a huge disappointment.

      No ads here. AdAway ftw

    Oh yeah, Into The Dead is a very fun and really addicting running game. I’m a huge fan of running games and zombies so to make a game with both genres was a real treat.

    It’s funny…I was just playing a bit of this game yesterday and noticed that the “Companion” perk was still slated as “Coming Soon!” and then today, the app was updated to include that perk. Awesome! Can’t wait to take the hound out for a spin!
