Top 8 Upcoming Zombie Games (2021 – 2022)

Zombie games don’t know how to die, just like zombies. Although many games in the zombie genre are released every year, the popularity of zombie-themed games seems to never decrease. Because in 2021 and 2022, many promising and good looking zombie games are getting ready to debut.

Among the zombie games that will be released in 2021 and 2022 are the PS4 game Days Gone, which will come to PC, the new multiplayer Resident Evil game and a new zombie-themed Rainbow Six mode called Rainbow Six: Quarantine. If you are ready, let’s take a closer look at the top upcoming zombie games that will be released in 2021 and 2022.

Back 4 Blood

Release Date: October 12, 2021

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Back 4 Blood, one of the most anticipated games of 2021 in general, will be the new multiplayer zombie survival game that will keep the spirit of Left 4 Dead games alive. The game is quite simple, just like in Left 4 Dead games, you and a few friends pierce the endless hordes of zombies and try to reach the safe point. It is home to many different types of zombies, weapons, levels and game modes. 

SYNCED: Off-Planet

Release Date: 2022

Platforms: PC

PUBG’s publisher company Tencent is preparing to release SYNCED: Off-Planet, a new zombie game based on PUBG, in 2022. In fact, although the characters we will fight in the game are people who have been dehumanized by nano technology, they are quite similar to the zombies we are used to seeing in games. This game, which will have PvE and PvP modes, will have the elements we like to see in zombie games such as loot, item creation and survival, unlike PUBG due to its concept.

SYNCED: Off-Planet, which supports Nvidia’s Ray Tracing technology, looks pretty good with Ray Tracing and looks like it will be a game that will push the systems. SYNCED: Off-Planet will most likely put our graphics cards in a position to cook eggs, especially considering that its arena will be as big as PUBG and filled with endless hordes of zombies.

Dying Light 2

Release Date: February 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

The launch of the second game of Dying Light, which is perhaps one of the best games of the zombie genre with its first game, is constantly postponed. Techland delayed the game from December 7 to February 4, 2022.

In Dying Light 2, we will witness the emergence of new post-apocalyptic social groups, and role-playing elements such as a larger map, more combat variety and the effects of our decisions on the game world will be waiting for us compared to the first game. Let’s hope Dying Light 2 is not delayed again and we can continue this beautiful story even more effectively.

Resident Evil RE:Verse

Release Date: 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Especially in this period when PUBG maker Tencent is making a new zombie-themed PvE/PvP game, Left 4 Dead is back as Back 4 Blood, and Rainbow Six is releasing a new zombie-themed mode, CAPCOM also wants to get its share of this cake.

Next in our list of the upcoming zombie games is Resident Evil RE:Verse. It will be a multiplayer game with PvE and PvP modes where we can play good and bad characters from the world of Resident Evil. The closed beta of the game has already been tested by some players, and according to the current gameplay, we can see that the game is based on Resident Evil 2 Remake. 

Apart from that, Resident Evil RE:Verse has some features that we are not used to seeing in zombie shooter games before. The most interesting of these is that if we die while playing a human character, we turn into a biological weapon, that is, a very powerful zombie. The strength of this zombie we turn into varies according to the virus capsules we have.

The Last Stand: Aftermath

Release Date: November 1, 2021

Platforms: PC

Made with donations collected through Kickstarter, The Last Stand: Aftermath will be published by Armor Games, the known name of Flash games. The reason for this is that The Last Stand is the very popular Flash game of Armor Games. 

The Last Stand: Aftermath, which we have an isometric perspective, looks very good despite being made with a very low budget. If you are looking for a nice Diablo-like game where you will try to survive by killing zombies on your own, The Last Stand: Aftermath may be one of the best upcoming zombie games for you.

The Day Before

Release Date: will be shared this month

Platforms: PC

The Day Before, whose release date will be shared this month – hopefully -, seems to be more than a zombie game. The upcoming zombie game, which looks like a combination of The Last of Us, Days Gone, Resident Evil 2 Remake and many more modern zombie games that we love, takes place in a big realistic looking city and there are also real players in this city.

While trying to survive in this huge city, we can loot and produce new items, on the other hand, we can engage in actions with other players and also fight with zombies. 

Evil Dead: The Game

Release Date: February 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

The cult horror and comedy series Evil Dead re-enters the game world, this time with a zombie theme. Announced at The Game Awards event of 2020, Evil Dead: The Game will be a game with arena-based PvE and PvP modes. In Evil Dead: The Game, which will host many characters from the Evil Dead movie and game series, these characters will have skill trees and different weapons.

It’s also worth noting that Bruce Campbell is present in the game as Ash Williams. Evil Dead: The Game, where we can have the pleasure of mowing zombies with our friends as Evil Dead characters, maybe not the Evil Dead game that many of us expected, but still the game seems to be quite fun.

After the Fall

Release Date: Late 2021

Platforms: PC, PS4

Vertigo Games, the developer of Arizona Sunshine, one of the most popular VR zombie games, is preparing to release a new VR zombie game late this year. Bringing a lot of innovation on Arizona Sunshine, After the Fall also hosts beautiful and creative weapons. Focusing on multiplayer, After the Fall takes place in the city of Los Angeles 20 years after the apocalypse caused by the zombie epidemic. After the Fall, which has the air of Borderlands in the art and atmosphere part, seems to be the favorite zombie shooter game of VR players for a long time.
