The zombie-filled endless runner Into the Dead has just run into another major update.

Released in December last year, Into the Dead puts you in the middle of a grim zombie apocalypse. In order to stay alive, you have to run from the surrounding undead and unlock various weapons and perks while you’re at it.

As it happens, the latest update to Into the Dead adds a couple of new perks for you to unlock.

One of these perks proves that even during the zombie apocalypse, you can still count on man’s best friend to save the day, or save you at the very least. In the new version of Into the Dead, you can take advantage of the new Canine Companion perk to kill zombies and help you survive longer than ever before.

The other new perk is exclusive to the game’s Massacre mode, wherein you have to kill as many zombies as you can. It’s called Exploding Barrels, and you can use this perk to take out a dozen zombies at once.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Into the Dead is available now in the App Store for free.

The newly updated Into the Dead also lets you compare your score with your friends’ by signing in to the Friends leaderboard via Facebook.

Into the Dead is developed by PikPok, the same studio behind such games as DreamWorks Dash n Drop, Oreo: Twist, Lick, Dunk, and Adult Swim’s Super Monsters Ate My Condo.
