After the apocalypse, we'll speak in hushed tones of luxuries like hot baths, limitless electricity, ice cream sandwiches, and fiber internet. And we'll realise that sturdy boots, reliable headsets, and a massive stock of sports bras are the new essentials.
What other essentials will we need? We have a metric ton of them in this update!
There's A WHOLE NEW WAY TO RUN - you can now set a precise time or distance you'd like your missions to last for. Training for our Virtual Race? Now you can make a story mission last for exactly 5k. Want a quick 30 minute run? Yes you can! Just tap the new 'cog' button on the Mission Screen.
You can PREVENT SONGS FROM BEING INTERRUPTED. We are not immune to the zombie virus, or to your fervent requests, which is why there's an option in the 'Music' settings on the Mission Screen to reduce the times songs are interrupted by story. Radio Abel will suddenly make a lot more sense!
The 'next' story mission can be AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOADED, because time is precious. This is optional and can be toggled (along with cellular downloads) in More > Settings.
We've IMPROVED SYNCING WITH ZOMBIELINK so that it happens more often and better handles a loss of internet connection. All downloads now occur in the background, which will make things smoother and faster.
Fixed: We now ask for permission to read and write your weight from the Health app.
Still reading? Have you signed up to our Virtual Race yet? No? It's going to be awesome - do it, before all the places have gone!
We won't ask you to rate Zombies, Run! in the app, but if you're enjoying saving the world, please take a moment to rate and review us in the App Store - it helps a lot!
Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1.8 million runners on an epic adventure!
You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!
Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home.
BBC NEWS - “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.”
WIRED - “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.”
LIFEHACKER - “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.”
CNN - “Turns exercise into a game - a terrifying, terrifying game.”
TIME - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app."
WHAT PLAYERS SAY:
“Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!”
“This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.”
“Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.”
WALK, JOG, OR RUN ANYWHERE
Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!
YOU ARE RUNNER 5
Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?
A WORLD OF STORIES
You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running really matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.
UPGRADE TO PRO
Unlock all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode.
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom playlists: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
Saving the world not exciting enough? When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?
KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE
Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine and ammo. Use supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies, or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.
