Last week, we were thrilled to announce a special gift for our players: three new missions for Halloween! We won’t be charging for these missions, and – like The Simpsons ‘Treehouse of Horror’ they take place completely outside our usual timeline.
Horseplay is written by ZR-fan-turned-ZR-writer Andrea Klassen.
Wai chu xiao xin is written by ZR lead writer and co-creator Naomi Alderman.
And we’re especially delighted that Living Dead Girl has been guest-written by Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-nominated author Emma Bull. Emma’s been a fan of the game for a while and we’re huge fans of her work so it’s an honour to have her on the ZR team for some Halloween fun.
We hope you enjoy these missions – and remember, stay safe out there.
Just because Zombies, Run! Season 2 has concluded doesn’t mean we aren’t adding new features and content — we’ve just updated the app with a whole new game mode!
Airdrop mode is a free update to Zombies, Run! on both iPhone and Android which allows you to set your own real-world running destination. Simply select a nearby drop-point (in the real world) for the supply package, and go pick it up! We’ll fill in the story for you as you go, so it’ll feel like a completely new set of missions.
Airdrop dynamically creates a mission for you based on your distance from the airdrop site and updates the story and distance notifications in real time. If you’re feeling daring, you can set yourself a return journey, too.
You can access Airdrop mode through the Missions screen – it’s in the same place that the Season 1, Season 2, Race Missions, Supply Missions, etc, are.
Airdrop mode takes place during the first half of Season 2 of the game, so, if you’ve not finished Season 1 yet, we recommend doing that before delving into this new game mode.
We hope you enjoy this free new update and, as always, be sure to let us know what you think!
And of course, we still have our special Halloween missions coming next week…!
We wanted to do something a little bit special to celebrate Halloween this year, so we’ve created 3 free Halloween missions for Zombies, Run!
Because Zombies, Run! already contains a lot of zombies and other scary things, we had to think outside the box in order to come up with these new Halloween missions. As a result, they’re super daft and very fun.
You’ll notice that these missions are separate from the canon and, as a result, can be played by anyone regardless of where you are in the story. Think of them as the Treehouse of Horror of Zombies, Run! The… Sports Bra of Terror? Don’t worry, we’ll think up something catchier than that…
There are 3 Halloween missions in total and we will be releasing them, one a day, in the run-up Halloweek (see what we did there?). We’ll have more spooky info on these as we approach that ominous day, so keep scarily checking the blog. With fear.
