Cold Comfort is an asymmetrical co-op/multiplayer horror survival game that is set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Players can choose to play as either a Survivor or a Gamma Prime (genetically mutated zombie), pitting two teams of 5 against each other.
The players – Survivors and Gamma Prime alike – are thrown into a hostile game world where they need to make a simple choice: Will they play as a team or will they try to survive on their own? This choice is forced onto them by an atmosphere of imminent danger and the overwhelming odds of a world that changed too suddenly. Behind the curtains of this struggle for survival a much bigger story is playing out – a story involving a huge pharma corporation with a vision and all the things that can go wrong, because humanity is simply not ready for immortality.
As an online multiplayer game with a strong focus on cooperation and teamwork it is a fast paced and story-driven FPS with two distinct factions divided into five classes with their unique play style, strengths and weaknesses.
Cold Comfort is designed to allow the player to build and break down defenses and make use of the various items in their environments, such as electricity, fuel, light and more, with an emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives.
Multi-level maps combined with strong pack mentality/cohesion mechanics, moral conundrums and survivor fortifications make Cold Comfort a heart thumping visceral gaming experience which mixes organized tactical group planning with split second decision making in real world scale battles with up to 5 players per side.
