House of the Dead: Overkill PS3: Another exclusive level revealed

Tackle a meaty infestation in new 'Creeping Flesh' level

Sega has revealed another awesome-looking PS3-exclusive level for House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut.


The second of two known exclusive levels - after the previously-revealed 'Naked Terror' level that helped earn the game a banning in Australia - is called 'Creeping Flesh', and has players blasting meaty enemies in what looks like a rotten flesh-covered abattoir.

"We pick up the story with Varla and Candy again, and this time circumstances lead them to the local abattoir," explains Sega man Mike Kebby. "I'm not going to spoil any of the story and the detail around what leads them there, but let's just say it's the standard House of the Dead fare; there are guns, motives for revenge and mutants galore, all wrapped up with the usual Grindhouse styling."

He goes on to hint: "As you can see from the above image, there is something of a meaty infestation starting to take hold inside the building, and internally we've affectionately referred to this as the meat wall (there is also a meat tunnel later in the level, so that's something to look forward to)."

He adds: "Varla and Candy find themselves fighting amongst this wall of flesh, and as they proceed through the 'meat factory' they'll be forced to take action against the new mutants shown above too. These mutants take the expression 'meat shield' to a new level, seeing as the additional flesh they're lugging around makes them slightly more impervious to gunfire than your standard mutants: it's body armour made of bodies, so to speak."

Sounds nasty. And awesome. There's shots of the level on this page, and more details through the source link.
