What are Deadzones?

Deadzone takes place in containment zones – cities or whole planets that have been erased from planetary maps and left for dead. You control an elite team of soldiers ready to enter the potentially lethal Deadzone and scavenge for whatever lucrative resources you can find. But competition is fierce, and other Strike Teams will be out to thwart you on your mission. Get in, get out, get rich, or get dead.


Deadzone uses an innovative cube-based system for movement and shooting without the need for tape measures. Models can be moved anywhere in a cube, which ensures you can make the best use of cover and obstacles to avoid the enemy. Movement takes seconds, rather than minutes. Shooting is just the same – measure the distance in cubes and, if you can see it, you can shoot it! Wargaming has never been this fast or cinematic.
