Dead Trigger 2 picks up first update, nabs new tournaments, performance improvements

Back in April Madfinger Games finally brought their popular zombie shooter Dead Trigger 2 to Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 (but only for ARM devices). Today, their 'summer update' has gone out with some nice additions that users will want to know about.

Dead Trigger 2 Summer Update

  • M.A.D. Virus European Tournaments
  • New improvements for best performance of all devices
  • Unlocking new regions for tournaments
  • Improving message relevancy based on player's activity
  • Reward for the update

Unfortunately, there are still two big drawbacks with this game:

  1. Still no support for 512 MB devices
  2. Cannot run on Windows 8.1 PCs just ARM tablets like the Surface 2

Those two setbacks will keep this game from being enjoyed by many users. Although we suppose the 545 MB download size of the game and intense graphics makes sense, at least for 512 MB phones. The ARM thing is a bit baffling.

Regardless, in terms of updates, this one looks quite solid so go and grab it now or read our full-review.

  • Nice!!!
  • Great game indeed
  • Indeed great game
  • Moga controller support?
  • I see some gamepad thing in the settings .. Maybe you should try that ??
  • I know they force us to play these games online so that no one could hack but requirement of constant internet connection takes away the fun for me.Farmville 2:Country Escape offers online/offline feature which is quite handy.
  • And also the guns take days to produce.. Till then we are on our previous guns that become weak enough for zombies to dominate us..
  • I paid $10 bucks right off the bat for dual Uzi's and an M16. It was worth every penny. 
  • Love it.. The most played game in my list..
    Also, happy to see myself getting credit for the tip :P
  • Fantastic
  • Queue the "no 512mb support" comments.
  • You were actually the first person to mention it. You should at least wait for people to actually complain before you make fun of them. 
  • How much is the reward for update? :P
  • One of the best graphic designed games on OS, should integrate with Xbox live
  • I hope they fix the wp10 compatibility soon
  • Any idea guys when Homerun Battle will release for windows phone....
