In the mood to dive into some post-apocalyptic gameplay on the PC? Luckily for you there are a ton of different video games that feature the undead and there’s definitely a massive catalog of video games to pick through thus creating this list was extremely difficult. We tried our best to narrow down the best video game title that are worth picking up on the PC. All the titles listed below are available for purchase right now as full title release or for early access.
- Developer: 10 Chambers Collective
- Publisher: 10 Chambers Collective
- Platforms: PC
- Release: TBD (Currently Early Access)
GTFO is a four-player action-adventure game. As it stands right now, this is an early access title so at the time of writing this, you may find changes. At the very basic, players venture down into the depths below from where a meteor struck the Earth surface. Looking for valuables and answers to history, those that take on the journey will find that something else is living below. As a result, the journey not only becomes a race to find resources, valuables, and ultimately, a means of escape back to the surface.
If you enjoy games like Left 4 Dead then you may find that this is worth checking out. For now, the game doesn’t look like it has an official release date quite yet. Currently, the developers are hoping to see the game make it out of early access this year, but you can enjoy it right now on the PC platform. Because this game is not fully released, we’ll just make it our honorable mention.
#27 7 days to die
- Developer: The Fun Pimps
- Publisher: The Fun Pimps
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: December 13, 2013
7 Days to Die is a voxel video game by indie developers The Fun Pimps. The game takes place after a world war which caused much of the planet to be wiped out after being exposed to nuclear weaponry.
Exposed to the radiation, a large majority of humans became infected, becoming mindless zombies leaving the remaining few survivors to scavenge for survival.
Players will find themselves seeking a variety of items to maintain their survival such as shelter, food, and of course, water. Currently, the 7 Days to Die video game is only available as an early access title.
#26 How to Survive
- Developer: EKO Software
- Publisher: 505 Games
- Platforms: PC, PS3, Wii U, PS4, XBO
- Release: October 23, 2013
How to Survive was developed under Eko Studios where the game plays in a top-down perspective. Players are tasked with scavenging items while making their way to an exit point which will take them to safety. However, what stands in their way are hordes of infected.
The video game was easy to pick up and play in spurts which later inspired the developers to go back and release a sequel known as How to Survive 2. Much of the mechanics remained the same, though the narrative followed the events of the first game.
Instead of the pandemic being an island problem, the infection had spread globally making it difficult for players to escape but rather build up a shelter to separate themselves from the undead.
