Society has been obsessed with zombies for decades and pop-culture has continued to worship the living dead through film, television, song, text and art like never before. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has even gotten on board and created a zombie novella to promote emergency preparedness.
Google zombies and you’ll get nearly 76.5 million hits — that’s more than Elvis Presley, McDonald’s or Wells Fargo Bank. Pretty impressive and also indicative of our ongoing love affair with reanimated corpses.
One specific area where zombies have made the biggest impression is in video gaming. Countless numbers of zombie video games have emerged over the years featuring zombies front and center, or the addition of an occasional zombie to keep game play lively (no pun intended). Understandably, there are plenty of other outstanding video games in the zombie genre, but many of these are for either specific gaming platforms or they require purchase.
For the budget savvy gamer on the go we’ve pulled together a list of free online zombie games to explore and play. These free online zombie games are just as enjoyable as a console game and a fun way to cut your teeth (again, another unintended pun) on becoming a world-class zombie slayer.
Free online zombie games
A free browser-based multiplayer game that groups players into post-apocalyptic towns comprised of 40 citizens each. Your goal is to try and survive as long as you can by plotting out strategies with your community.
An MMORPG-based game with a zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic backdrop that features 10 million registered players and 3D graphics.
Dubbed an open-world survival horror game, DeadZ allows players to either take on hordes of zombies or battle survivors.
Find a key for your and escape the endless waves of zombies. Use a suite of powerful weapons — shotguns and rocket launchers — as you progress. Undead Highway is a simple, but entertaining game.
You’re the only survivor of a nuclear accident and your mission is to escape from the city, which has been rendered a wasteland. Radioactivity has resurrected the former population into flesh-eating oddities. Let the slaughter begin.
Seven years ago, a government quarantine locks down a city’s borders leaving those within to survive. Create your character and play alongside millions of others to triumph over the undead. NOTE: Urban Dead has no graphics. It’s similar to a MUD (yes, we’re dating ourselves).
What makes this zombie game different from the others is its integration of Google Maps. Essentially, you are a leader and protector of zombie survivors and you must use Google Maps to route them to safe destinations. Keeping track of distance, fatigue and population density based on census data are key to your success.
If you’ve come across any other free online zombie games that you’ve enjoyed, please let us know. We’d love to hear from you. Happy zombie hunting!
