Football DLC released for Typing of the Dead Overkill

Football Manager-inspired add-on is a free download

In what may be the oddest DLC release of the year, Sega has launched a Football Manager add-on for The Typing of the Dead: Overkill.

The downloadable content, entitled Football Manager of the Dead, replaces all the words and phrases in the game with football-related ones.

This means players will have to type the likes of "Manchester derby", "Looking for a new manager" and "Accept all loan offers" to kill zombies.

The Typing of the Dead: Overkill was a surprise release, appearing on Steam this year just before Halloween.

The game follows the same story as the Wii and PS3 lightgun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, but instead of shooting at zombies to kill them, players have to type words that appear underneath them.

The gameplay is similar to the original Typing of the Dead, the 1999 title which did the same with The House of the Dead 2.

With three difficulty levels and full Steam integration (including achievement support), the game also includes a full port of the PS3 version of The House of the Dead: Overkill, should players wish to shoot with a mouse instead.

It is available to purchase now on the Steam store, priced at £14.99 / €17.99 / $19.99. The Football Manager of the Dead DLC is free.
