Yikes! Zombies are coming to Apple mobile devices courtesy of Epic Games’ Unreal 3 game development engine.

Nexon Mobile said Monday it licensed Unreal technology from the Cary-based company to build “Combat Arms: Zombies,” which will be released in November.

However, this is no simple, fun social game.

Zombies is a full-fledged first person shooter filled with gruesome characters and action. The game is based on a Nexon online game that the company says has more than 5 million players across America and Europe.

Epic has embraced the Applie iOS system for its own “Infinity Blade,” a forthcoming sequel and use of its Unreal engine in the Apple world for the first time.

“Using Epic Games’ cutting edge Unreal Engine technology, ‘Combat Arms: Zombies’ will set a new standard for graphics and quality gameplay on mobile devices,” said Nexon Mobile Chief Executive Officer Albert Rim in a statement. “‘Combat Arms: Zombies’ has been a major effort for us and it will help establish Nexon Mobile as a top developer of multi-platform games.”
