The House of the Dead 4 Special is a two-player attraction based off The House of the Dead 4. Players enter an enclosed room, sit down, buckle up, and experience zombie blasting like never before. The game makes use of two 100 inch screens, one in front and one in back, and a 5 speaker sound system, giving the impression that zombies are attacking from all sides. The seat shakes as zombies attack, and players are blasted with air for every bullet that penetrates their defenses. Sega's modified the game's light gun to make it more suitable for an attraction. Guns are now fully automatic and include a hand grenade button. This update to the Lindbergh debut gun shooter will follow a new side story in the House of the Dead plotline, teaming Kate Green up with "G".
