Huge FREE update just released

August 27

We have just released a huge FREE update to Zombie Driver HD which includes a lot of improvements to the game.

Major changes:
- more than doubled the number of zombies roaming the streets,
- a lot more weapons around the city which results in much more dynamic gameplay,
- a new "Retro" camera setting which presents gameplay from an entirely top-down perspective with no camera rotation,
- bloody skidmarks when driving through blood splats
- dust particles are emitted when a car is drifting
- soft ambient occlusion shadows (HBAO),
- depth fog,
- environment reflections,
- new animated objects,
- improved particle animation and physically simulated particles,
- improved atmospheric effects and rebalanced all missions,

The new update enables HBAO by default (it is called Screen Space Ambient Occlusion in the config window). This option may be hard on some older or integrated graphics cards so if you are experiencing performance problems please disable it in the config screen or decrease your rendering resolution (the rendering performance cost of this feature is directly tied to the screen resolution). We also strongly encourage everyone to leave Vsync turned on.

Huge Free update available in Beta

August 20

We are currently working on a huge FREE update to Zombie Driver HD which includes a lot of big improvements to the game.

Major changes:
- more than doubled the number of zombies roaming the streets,
- a lot more weapons around the city which results in much more dynamic gameplay,
- a new "Retro" camera setting which presents gameplay from an entirely top-down perspective with no camera rotation,
- bloody skidmarks when driving through blood splats
- dust particles are emitted when a car is drifting
- soft ambient occlusion shadows (HBAO),
- depth fog,
- environment reflections,
- new animated objects,
- improved particle animation and physically simulated particles,
- improved atmospheric effects and rebalanced all missions,

We have just released the update as a public beta and it would be great if you could help us spot any problems before we make it live for everyone. If you want to check out the update right click on Zombie Driver HD in your list of games on Steam, select Properties, go to the Beta tab and select the Public Beta from the drop down menu. The update should download approximately 1.1GB (we've changed a lot of stuff).

The new update enables HBAO by default (it is called Screen Space Ambient Occlusion in the config window). This option may be hard on some older or integrated graphics cards so if you are experiencing performance problems please disable it in the config screen or decrease your rendering resolution (the rendering performance cost of this feature is directly tied to the screen resolution). We also strongly encourage everyone to leave Vsync turned on.

If you would encounter any crashes or problems it would help us greatly if you could send us the debug information that should be created with each crash. You can find crash dump information here (Exact location depends on which windows version you have and may be slightly different.):
C:\Users\your_username\Documents\ZombieDriverHD

Memory dump file name should be similar to this:
ZombieDriverHD_3221225477_2010_1_8_T13_50_3.mdmp

Please send the files and your feedback to support@zombiedriver.com. We would very much appreciate your help in smoothing out any problems!

If lavender tea and deep breathing don't help after a bad day, try this. Mixed with the proper metal this game's survival mode is a great stress reliever. Plus, it throws out achievements like candy making you feel like even more of a rock star. I sat down planning to spend 30 minutes killing some zombies...I walked away 4 hours later feeling as if I had been at a day spa.

I really recommend that! You can have a lot of hours Fun with that game and it have many possibilities, options and gameplay settings. The HD Version runs well on lower Systems, too. The game, as you know, is individual and special in that case. There is nothing to regret to check it out.

Very interesting game, I'd say.
I really enjoyed playing it and will definitely continue playing it when I'm in the mood from some zombie killing with a vehicle that has weapons on it.
Unlockable cars, ugrades for your cars, weapons and so. I really recommend this game.

And for people who like to get achievement from games, I've played the game for about 8 hours now, and I've already unlocked 60 of 103 achievements in the game.

This remake of Zombie Driver adds some new content and modes to play, though the modes are kinda useless the base game itself is still very enjoyable and fun. A top down isometric GTA style view except now with more zombehs. Choose diff vehicles and enjoy mowing them all down. The plus for the remake in HD is the controls work much better instead of the confused mess they were in the last version. The tournament mode is sorta meh, rubberband racer AI, weird things that make your car flip over or spin around. Ignoring the modes which are a failed experiment, the game itself gives what all zombie fans want more of, more zombies! Lots of replayability with mission select so you can test out all the cars to get your zombie fix.

Rating: 10/10 Value: $9.99

Suddenly it's a very nice game. I'm shocked, lol. Dynamic racing action, blood, gore, zombies and interesting car upgrades. Cool.

I didn't have high expectations for Zombie Driver HD, but it's suprisingly good fun mowing down zombies in your car! My fav mode to play is Slaughter (survival) where the zombies keep coming which also has an online scoreboard to challenge your friends. Story mode is repetitive and gets pretty boring; there is a lot of content for the money though! Blood Racing is OK but most enjoyable once you get a good ride. Decent array of weaponry & cars to choose from which are all upgradable (off course :p).

I created a section in the guide above which has a quick list of what you get in the DLCs. Also covers things like the vehicles, game modes etc which might be helpful if you still want to get a better feel for the game.

Definitely good value, a few weak points short of a classic but overall a solid, fun game!

Worth checking out if you like top-down racing games.
