If there’s one thing that we can confirm, it’s the fact that zombies won’t stand a chance against humans if the zombie apocalypse were to ever happen given all the experience we all have gathered through gaming alone. The number of zombie games released on any platform each year seems to surpass all other genres and still the game devs are not able to satisfy our inner desire to blow up some zombies. It’s a win-win situation anyway (except for the zombies) as we are able to treat ourselves with leading titles every year and also prepare ourselves for the inevitable.
However, how many times can you recall in the recent past when you were playing a survival horror late night and you just wished there was someone by your side? Well that’s exactly what we were wondering and hence we thought of presenting a compilation of games that are based on zombies in a multiplayer setting. You can play these top multiplayer games on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Andriod or even online.
