It seems we can’t get enough of zombies and no matter how absurd the concepts of zombie games become, we just accept it anyway. It seems there is a different sense of satisfaction when you are spraying hordes of humanoids with lead bullets and our human psyche just can’t get enough of it. There has been a wrong perception that PC players get to experience the most of the zombie games, given that a keyboard and mouse is extremely efficient when you want to keep killing them monsters while escaping at the same time and hence we wanted to set the score right on this one. There are loads of good zombie games on the PS4 and the Xbox One available as of now but they seem to get overshadowed by the big names of the industry. So we did some research and dug out the best zombie games available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The list includes multiplayer zombie games, 2 player zombie games, open world zombie games.
14. Zombie Army Trilogy (2015)
Ever imagined a world where Nazi Germany raised the dead as a last ditch effort to win the war leading to the utter infestation of Nazi Germany and gruesome deaths in the battlefields? That’s exactly what Zombie Army Trilogy is all about, a game that was a spin-off of the Sniper Elite series and places the player in the zombie infested fields of World War II. The game is a tactical third person shooter that relies heavily on stealth mechanics and will require you to shoot targets from afar while remaining hidden in the shadows. Mechanics are borrowed from Sniper Elite v2 where if you are able to make a successful shot, a kill cam animation triggers showing you the exact path of the bullet and then displaying an anatomically correct X-Ray of the victim’s condition after the shot. The game also requires you to correctly judge the trajectory of the bullet according to environmental conditions and wind direction and also allows you to hold your breath in order to steady your shot. The gameplay is quite linear as compared to the other games in the Sniper Elite series though and sometimes requires you to shoot explosive objects in order to take out hordes of zombies at once.
13. Evil Within 2 (2014)
Evil Within 2 is a direct sequel to the 2014 game Evil Within directed and created by Shinji Mikama, the mind behind the creation of the Resident Evil series. The game has been mostly appreciated for its gameplay and environment design which is largely due to the amount of experience behind the development team. The game however did receive some flak for its character development and storyline but it has largely been shadowed by the unique atmospheres and the unique gameplay moments. Evil Within 2 picks up from where Evil Within left off, following the protagonist of the story, Sebastian Castellanos, who is being pulled between the very fabrics of different dimensions and facing nightmarish creatures in the process. The player needs to craft various materials in order to survive from these hellish creatures and will have the option of either confronting them head on or from the shadows. The game was developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softwares in the year 2014.
12. Days Gone (2019)
