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.
