From the 22nd of March, gamers in Bristol, Manchester and London will be able to take ‘missions’ using augmented reality zombies on an iPhone and Android app. As far as I can work out from the excitedly-worded press release you walk around the city eliminating zombies on your app.
If you’re in London there’s a live event as well (details below) which will let players (according to Capcom) “[enter] the challenge to hunt around the capital’s urban environments after a mission briefing from operatives in a zombie-free location.”
