Rumour: French OPM to reveal a new zombie game next month

The next issue of the French Official PlayStation Magazine will reportedly feature a zombie-themed cover, and the publication is apparently claiming a previously unannounced title will be revealed.

Play France spotted the magazine’s art reveal, as well as some auto-translate garbled tease text for the April issue.

“Frissions guaranteed! Exclusively, the editor of the magazine has managed to break ground. The legend of horror. A title that can wake the dead and to shiver the living pleasure, here is what awaits you next month,” we are told.

The art has since been revealed as that of the European PS2 cover of Resident Evil: Outbreak, which adds a hefty pile of salt to the story – although it’s not unprecedented for magazine art departments – and publishers – to recycle old assets.

2004’s Outbreak was the first, often-forgotten Resident Evil title to feature online multiplayer, although those features were stripped from the PAL territory release.
