I hate running. I don’t mind riding bikes, swimming, or even lifting weights. Running, on the other hand, is just about the lamest exercise I could possibly do. If you are like me, you need some kind of incentive to get off the couch. An attack of surprisingly fast zombies would do the trick.
Six to Start hit it big with their fitness app Zombies, Run! Today, the company has launched Season 2 with 60 new missions, better graphics, and more interactive gameplay. Grab your trainers and get out there. If the threat of getting your brains eaten doesn’t make you want to run, nothing will.
Season 2 begins with seven new missions. Each week, additional missions will be added as the story of the end of humanity unfolds before you. If you already own Zombies, Run!, the first set of missions are free. Just download the update to version 2.0. To add the rest of the story, buy the Season Pass through an in-app purchase.
Existing players will notice that the app has a complete redesign with better graphics and the new base builder mode, which allows you to customize Abel Township. Each player’s base will be different with upgraded buildings and one-off amenities. You’ll be able to share your town with other runners through the app’s free online service, ZombieLink.
You can also track your mission status, view maps of your runs, and track your progress of time and distance through the ZombieLink website.
Adrian Hon, CEO of Six to Start and the app’s co-creator, said, “In only a year, Zombies, Run! has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world get into running and enjoy it more than ever before. This follow-up is a huge step forward, with fantastic new graphics, more advanced gameplay, improved accessibility, and of course, a continuation of our amazing story. And with our weekly missions, Zombies, Run! 2 will be like a TV show that you run to. There’s nothing else out there like it.”
Zombies, Run! is on sale for half off at $3.99 to celebrate the launch of Season 2. All in app purchases are currently on sale for half off, as well. Pick up the Season Pass for only $1.99 the Season Pass Plus, which includes Season 2, plus the Sidequests, for only $3.99, or get the Sidequests separately for only $2.99.
Maybe running isn’t so bad when you are trying to keep the undead from turning your intestines into a spaghetti dinner.
