Like a reaper tick that controls the spinal system of corpses.
That’s a no from me. (Someone didn’t look at the dev’s survey, zombies were not mentioned as a suggested new enemy) Sorry not sorry
I agree with tene kinda. I would say do not waste a lot of resources to add it to the base game. As it definitely does not the fit the game. But as a funny April Fools, or Halloween thing. It could be funny. Like they announce zombies. But it is just a hunter with human flesh all over it making corrupted audio sounds. Like just a reveal video even. Not an in-game enemy. But just having a dead hunter with human flesh all over it in a cave or something.
First, we get Zombies into GZ, then some more creepy atmosphere. After that - a bit of supernatural entities and apparitions with high levels of physical and mental influences. The only sting would be left is name it S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and we done.
Copyright problems, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is being made (again), let´s hope they make it this time.
But you can always name it “Zombie Zero”.
No. Just No.
When devs started working on GZ, zombie games were (and still are) popular. And rather than making another “zombie-survival” game, devs opted to go with machines instead.
IMHO, this is the best choice devs ever made. If there would be zombies in place of machines, i wouldn’t be here.
Yes, there is a topic (not poll) about char bios and i created my 4 girls as machines of FNIX.

And my next reply in the linked topic explains in-depth about the method of my char bio creation (under collapse tag).
Zombies in GZ? …no!
BUT, if they made an entirely new game, with a copy-paste of GZ’s mechanics, gameplay, gunplay, loot system, graphics, everything, and gladly set in Sweden in the 80’s as well, then build a new game with zombies instead of machines, a darker lore, and then paint the whole thing with blood, guts and a post-apocalyptic atmosphere… Let’s just say it would be another pre-order from me!
That what I was thinking tbh…
Because zombies in 80s Sweden would be pretty cool
To be honest, almost any game set in the 80’s would be funny as hell with zombies.
Just think of all the zombies with mohawks, and leotards and leg warmers and great rocker hair, and those great (porn) mustaches. Of course as time went by they wouldn’t look so cool anymore; but initially the look would IMHO look pretty cool!
But not this game! Robots yes, zombies no!
I voted no. This is not meant to be a zombie game.
Ok. IMO, zombies would be pretty good, but my favourite part of GZ is the robots.
Most Zombie games are a bit of a worn out cash grab now tbh.
In response to the “this is not meant to be a zombie game”, I think some zombie-like elements could be part of an AI apocalypse and applied to a game without necessarily making it a “zombie game”. IRL, of course an AI would weaponize human corpses if it was possible and cost-effective, which it certainly is compared to building new machines and shooting bullets.
How would that affect the game? Maybe just provide some spooks when looting houses, an occasional distraction to break the monotony of looting (which frankly, could be achieved through plenty of other ways). In short, I’d probably like it but I don’t see this becoming a prominent game feature.
I think it would be cool too, but that’s not the problem for me. To implement it means the developers would have to spend time and money on it, which could be better spent on more important stuff.
So, overall most forum members do not want zombies in the game, so devs don’t make it!
I think someone should probably close this topic now, as there is a large majority.
Although most people don´t want zombies, that is not the reason for the devs not implementing it.
You think 60 game users/clients decide the fate of the game future and DLC?
We give them some ideas sure but we don´t decide for them what they implement or not.
Bringing zombies is something colossal, there are no animations, npcs, no melee mechanics at all, it would take a lot of work.
It would take them 6 months, maybe more because of the VIRUS to bring some sort of beta zombie mode to the game.
And guess what, we would be again all frustrated during that time because we would have no new content for the game.
I know. You put,
`And guess what, we would be again all frustrated during that time because we would have no new content for the game.’
That shows that you don’t think it’s worth it, and neither do I. This was just an idea from a player that I was interested to see people’s opinions on.
