It looks like you made it onto the “nice” list this year, so you’ll find some neatly-wrapped Zombies, Run! updates nestled under your tree.
iOS 5.1.1 Update
Beta testers have been putting the new iOS update through its paces, but now it’s ready for everyone to use. We have the all-new mission progress bar which will tell you how far through a story mission you are and how many supplies you’ve collected. We’ve also included improvements to zombie chases and lots of bug fixes to make the app better for you.
Our new Apple Watch app will now stay on display while you’re on a run, so you can check your run progress and supply count at a glance! You’ll also be able to access a list of missions, instead of just the next one, and you’ll see that we’ve added a load of UI and run info improvements.
Android 5.0.10 Update
This update includes general performance and UI improvements, as well as some bug fixes. This means you’ll be getting the most stable version of Zombies, Run!
An Extra Treat
Finally, we present the entirely non-canonical Ballad of Abel Township Runner Five, just for you:
How does a walker, jogger, glum of boring Workouts, airdropped in the middle of a Forgotten spot by Abel Township, by providence Infested, by zombies Grow up to be a hero and a Runner?
The fifth-time successor runner without a trainer Got a lot farther by moving a lot further By sweating a lot longer By working with real honour, By mission end, they placed her in charge of a Town’s protection
And every day while zombies were tearing people’s hearts out Away across the land, she struggled and kept her guard up Outside, she was running to keep the town unparted The sister was ready to run, fight, become a martyr
Then a madman came, and devastation reigned Our woman saw humanity drip, dripping down the drain Put laces on her trainers, headset tight to the brain And she ran without complain, ignoring the pouring rain
Well, the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man” Bringing back supply collections all ‘cross the hinterland “New destination: don’t forget the whole kingdom ‘cos The land is gonna know your name. What’s your name, man?“
Abel Township Runner Five My name is Abel Township Runner Five And there’s a thousand miles I haven’t run But just you wait, just you wait…
