There’s a good amount of additions to the game if you’re familiar with the Zombie Army Dead War franchise. Players will receive new perks and weapon upgrades.

The Walking Dead started out as just a zombie comic book but the storyline was so compelling and popular that it quickly spawned not only a TV adaptation but a series of spin-offs, books, toys, clothing, conventions, and even video games. This franchise became a worldwide hit and fans can’t get enough, however, this year we got a closer look into the world of The Walking Dead with a VR title. Developed by Skydance Interactive, fans who want to really dive into The Walking Dead universe could jump into The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, a VR game that throws players into a survivor in New Orleans. Just like the show and comic books, players will need to go through the area carefully with the various undead zombies roaming about. Through makeshift weapons, players can attack the zombies either through firearms or melee weapons.

  • Publisher: Capcom
  • Platforms: PC,PS4,XBO
  • Release: April 3, 2020

While Resident Evil 3 is releasing, most might forget that there is a multiplayer component added into the title. Project Resistance was first unveiled prior to Resident Evil 3 and now we know that this game is actually a companion title that is launching with Resident Evil 3 so if you pick up Resident Evil 3 then you will have Resistance as well. This is a 4v1 multiplayer title that puts players together as they work to figure out puzzles, defeat monsters, and progress to the next room.

Meanwhile the opposing player has is constructing their doom in the rooms ahead. It’s a constant battle between the group of players as they seek out resources and weapons while the opposing player has the option to set traps and place enemies like zombies in certain areas.

Resident Evil is a staple franchise for zombie video game titles and as a result, we’ve seen several video game installments released. While we may have only seven of the mainline entry titles, there are several spin-offs and even some unique one-off type games. Still, for fans of the franchise, over the years we’ve some of the video game titles turn more action-horror oriented rather than being survival horror. That fortunately changed for the hardcore fans as Capcom opted to go back and deliver a more traditional survival horror game when Resident Evil 7 went into development.

The reception has been great and Capcom released another big hit in the franchise when they opted to bring out a remake of Resident Evil 2. There was plenty of speculation that Resident Evil 3: Nemesis would be next. Towards the end of 2019 we got the official announcement for a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake. Players will be going through the game as Jill in an attempt to pick up the pieces behind Raccoon City, why so many people are infected and if the Umbrella Corps can really be the cause of it.

#1 The Last of Us Part 2

  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA
  • Gameranx Before You Buy

The Last of Us was an instant hit when it first released on the PlayStation 3 and now in 2020, we’re getting a sequel. Releasing exclusively on the PlayStation 4, players will embark on a new journey with Ellie several years later. Just as before, there is a zombie-like apocalypse where a virus is turning people into mindless hostile creatures. Before you head to the comments, we do know that the creatures are not necessarily zombies but a fungus type virus. But with that said, they still behave and act like mindless zombies, so we’re tossing this game into the list.

Within the first installment, there was a big focus on the creatures with the goal of finding a cure to prevent this virus from spreading any further and claiming any more innocent lives. We’re not too sure how big of a role the zombie-like creatures will be taking in this installment. In the trailers released, it seems that the main antagonist force is a small cult faction group. We don’t know their end goal yet, but they did seemingly took out Ellie’s love interest and as a result, Ellie out for blood. That’s not to say we’re not going to see these fungus sprouting enemies roaming the world. At its core, you should still treat this game as a survival title.


Bonus

Hold Out

  • Developer: Open Brains Studio
  • Publisher: Open Brains Studio
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: TBA
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Hold Out is currently available on Steam through Early Access and as a result, we’ve put this title as a bonus game. In the title, players are going through Hold Out as a co-op shooter set in an infested world filled with zombies. Overall, the game is all about survival, seeking resources, exploring the various environments and ultimately overcoming the fast hordes of undead. As mentioned, this game can be enjoyed right now through Early Access, but the full version is said to come with new maps, game modes among other features. Unfortunately, we don’t know just when the game is slated to make its way out of Early Access.
