Project Zomboid Releases A Massive Update, Co-op Play Returns

By - | Views: 11,329
Project Zomboid is the fantastic zombie survival game that you can play in single-player, co-op, or online with other survivors. Myself and Samsai have really been getting into it, and a massive update was released.

Big changes
This update brings back the co-op play to be able to play on the same screen with multiple users, and with game-pads too. Your party can even join online servers, and that's fantastic.

Added a "Beginner" mode.

A brand new health system.

The Erosion mod is integrated in the vanilla game, and it brings with it many different trees, bushes and plants. This makes the game look a LOT more interesting, as lots of the same trees did make it look a bit bland, but no more! See below (yes I realise my guy is half-naked!):

Tweaked brightness and colours to make it a bit more realistic.

Added auto zoom on joypad.

And a lot more features are in, which includes lots of bug-fixes. See their changelog post for details.

The best place to grab it right now is Steam, as it gets updated more than Desura. Article taken from

Does anyone have any issues with the F310 gamepad for this game? I am only able to move sideways for some reason. I spent half of yesterday trying to figure out why to no avail. I tried changing the numbers in the configuration file but that had no effect. Can anyone help me?

I have been watching Project Zomboid progress for years... this is the best feature I've been waiting for. Now we can survive together and hack those minions. I'm interesting in purchasing once again!

Bought it last week. Totally worth it. I'll check out the new features ASAP
