A First-Person Zombie Shooter... On Facebook?

In case anyone is under the impression that Facebook gaming is all farms and candy crushing, zombie-killing epic Dead Trigger 2 has arrived to challenge that notion with extreme prejudice. Let's play!

Madfinger Games has spent the past couple of years impressing the hell out of iOS and Android gamers with its series of first-person undead murder simulators. Dead Trigger and Dead Trigger 2 received tons of praise from critics and players alike, and are considered to be some of the best first-person shooters on mobile devices, right up there with Shadowgun — also a Madfinger joint.

And now Dead Trigger 2 can be played on Facebook. I spent a substantial chunk of my morning verifying that fact.

What a time we live in, when we can click a link (like this one right here) and instantly be playing a first-person shooter the likes of which we'd be paying $50 for a mere decade prior.

It's not the most challenging first-person shooter, and yes — it's free-to-play, and there are things to buy. There are also more than 600 missions for players to work their way through, all of which can be completed without spending a dime.

Dead Trigger 2 is available to play for free on Facebook right now. You can also get it for free on iOS or Android, with progress shared and saved between all three platforms. It's like we're living in the post-apocalyptic future.
