Zombies, Run! Season 3 out next month
I went for a 5k run before starting work this morning, and as always Zombies, Run! provided me with the motivation required to not come to a stop, bored, after ten minutes. I’ve covered the immersive app several times in the past, but if you’re not familiar with it, Zombies, Run! basically turns a real-world jog into a journey through the zombie apocalypse. Episodic stories unfold in between tracks from your playlist as you run.
There are plenty of episodes on offer for regular runners, and a radio mode will give you something to listen to once you’ve finished with the main story and side quests. However, sooner or later you’ll have listened to everything and be ready for new tales, and the good news is they’re on their way.
Season 3 of Zombies, Run! will be launching this April (there’s no firm date yet) and according to Six to Start, the developers, bring big changes for the people of Abel Township where your alter ego, Runner 5, is based. Intriguingly, it sounds as if things may not be as linear this time -- "Excitingly, once or twice this season, some crucial decisions will be down to you, the player -- choose wisely, for you hold Abel Township in your hands" Six to Start teases.
There will be several new features introduced in the app, including detailed statistics, a new and improved codex, additional sharing options, and a redesigned interface.
