More About Zombie MMORPG

The zombie setting is one of the most popular and widespread for the post-apocalyptic genre. In these games, humans are struggling from the exotic pandemic, which turns people into aggressive creatures. This plot has variations: the virus can turn people into the decaying living dead, or make them suffer from ‘rage virus’, which forces to attack in infected creatures. Some projects use even more unusual ways of spread, such as fungal infection. The infected humans’ appearance changes dramatically: they’re often covered with blood, wounds and pus, and their flesh decomposes.

Usually, Zombie MMORPG provides an opportunity to play like a usual survivor — it’s more common for sandbox survival projects because the gameplay in these videogames is aimed at routine survival. Many games of this setting offer an opportunity to play as a hero whose goal is to save the world. At the same time, any sort of zombie video games can have the most entertaining feature — an opportunity to play as infected. In this game mode, you can hunt down uninflected players, team up with other zombies and create different strategies which help to infect as many people as possible effectively. Still, this kind of gameplay usually available with additional content; video games almost never provide an opportunity to play as a zombie in story mode. Some games also offer game modes for PvP with other uninfected players, where zombies used as AI-controlled mobs which complicate the gameplay.
