Top 10 New Zombie Games Coming Out 2021

Are you a fan of zombie games? It is time to rejoice! The year 2021 will come with a wide range of horror, action, and survival games. Many of them will include zombies or zombie-like creatures and will take place in a post-apocalyptic universe invested with deadly creatures. We will see some of the original titles and sequels that became part of the genre.

Let us take a look at my top 10 new zombie games!

1. Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2 was announced at E3 2018 with a flashy trailer, but starting with 2019 details have been sparse. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was delayed in January 2020 and is now expected in 2021. 

Much like its predecessor, the dynamic first-person melee combat combines clever use of the environment, the world’s day-night cycle, and a cooperative multiplayer campaign that supports up to four players. The action will take place 15 years after the events of the first game. The infected protagonist Aiden Caldwell parkours his way through the massive, open-world map in an attempt to outrun the virus in his blood.

You will fight against a totally new breed of mutated alien parasite. This new enemy is more lethal and challenging than ever before, it infects humans hosts and their surroundings.

7. A Way to Be Dead

A way to be dead is an asymmetrical multiplayer game with deep horror elements. The action takes palace in a zombie-infested hospital. The game implies that you can play as one of the 4 survivors or as the crazy infected doctor.

I can say for sure that this is a game for people that play Dead by Daylight, the idea behind it is similar to it and it can give players a really nice change of scenery and gameplay.
