Project Winter is all about deception and its a game where players must push beyond the paranoia and attempt to overcome the traitors of your group. Matches are set up with teams of eight players and the entirety of the group is stranded in the wilderness. In order to escape, players must work together and attempt to gather resources and complete tasks. However, in this team of eight are traitors.

World War Z
- Developer: Saber Interactive
- Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: April 16, 2019
If you want a bit more chaotic action to your zombie game then we have to suggest looking at World War Z. This title focuses on more horde based zombies where players can work together and fend off a massive horde of undead. They are a bit fast in movement similar to what we’ve seen in the film based that bears the same name. Zombies even pile up to reach higher grounds which we imagine no area is really safe from being reached and attacked. Apparently throughout the game players can strategically place traps to thin out the herd of zombies and you’ll be taken to different locations around the world.

Vigor follows after the release of DayZ and in a lot of ways it resembles the game. For those of you who didn’t enjoy DayZ, you’ll want to check into Vigor. The game has been available through early access, but players will find a full launch this year. Overall, the game follows a worldwide event which humanity is on its last legs where players are left in Norway. Best of all with this game you don’t have to fetch over any money because it’s a free-to-play title described as a shoot ‘n’ loot. Players will have to build shelters, gather resources and deal with the threats that lurk out in the open world.
