Survival games are good if you want to channel your inner Bear Grylls but how about a zombie survival game? Some would argue that it would be good training for the inevitable end to real-life, for others it could be one step too far. Either way, Zombie Watch has arrived today on Xbox to prepare you for the end of days.
As one of the few people who survived a virus that turned the rest of the population into cannibalistic shufflers you must create a new life for yourself and survive this post-apocalypse. Explore a variety of different biomes from desert like areas to those not unlike a tropical jungle environment. Scavenge for resources but be warned, it isn’t only the walking dead you should be fearing.
Use these resources to craft weapons, clothing, food and items to help you with your base building. Zombie Watch demands you create a robust base with defences fit for a king as it will challenge you with random zombie attacks on your base. Survive these, and the need for more resources begins again.
Zombie Watch features an unusual top-down perspective which will help you as attack can and will come from any direction.
Available today, Zombie Watch on Xbox will cost £9.99. It is also Optimised for Xbox Series X|S consoles if you want your zombie shambling in next-generation goodness. Will you be picking this up, let us know in the comments if you are? The post-apocalypse can be a lonely place out there on your own after all.
Welcome to the world of Zombie Watch! You are one of a few people who survived a virus that has infected most of the population and turned them into flesh-eating zombies. They may be dead but they are not resting in peace and they will come after you. Take on the challenge of survival in a harsh and brutal environment and prove you can conquer them all. Zombie Watch is a top-down survival game that will take you to the post-apocalyptic world, where you are going to encounter numerous zombies and wildlife. Gather, mine, scavenge for resources and build a self-sustaining base with defenses to fend off the incoming zombie hordes. Craft or find weapons, armor, medicine, and much more. STORY: You wake up in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by bloodthirsty zombies that are after you around the clock. They can smell you from a distance, hear every step you take if you are not careful, and will make you their one and only target once they spot you. While living in hiding or fighting for your life, you also have to attend to your basic human needs. It would be a shame if you perished from starvation or thirst.
