In this article we list some of the best zombie games releasing this year and beyond. We haven’t just stuck with the highly anticipated but also some lesser-known diamonds in the rough to look out for.
There’s something about fighting, fleeing and surviving in a world plunged into chaos by a flesh-eating army of the undead which players love. Fortunately for us, this year is a big one for zombie titles and we couldn’t be more excited! So let’s get into it.
5 of the best zombie games to look out for
Resident Evil Village (7th May / PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S)
This will be the eighth mainline entry to the historic iconic, Resident Evil franchise.
Set a couple of years after RE7, Ethan Winters, the protagonist is happily living after being reunited with his wife, Mia.
Of course, happiness never lasts long in Resident Evil and true to its nature, thing’s take a turn for the worse when Chris Redfield shows up, setting off a chain reaction of events which causes Ethan to hunt out a mysterious village in search for answers.
Resident Evil Village will be in first-person and focus more on combat and exploration than RE7.
Undying (TBC / PC)

With only a few days until the virus takes full control of her she has to fight to survive and teach her son as many valuable survival skills as possible so he can survive in this hostile post-apocalyptic world.

We don’t really have that much information about this upcoming game but it has been described as a “3-player tactical co-op FPS” which is everything we’d expect a Rainbow Six zombie game to be like.
Back 4 Blood (22nd June / PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S)
Sadly, Valve is refusing to make another Left 4 Dead, enter Back 4 Blood, not quite a new Left 4 Dead but could it be better?
