2018 is fast approaching. While we all expect to get more Walking Dead and hopefully a few good zombie movies; we can wait to get out hands on some of these new zombie video games set to be released in 2018. While we are unsure what to expect in the horror movie genre; we have a good idea of what to expect when it comes to the new zombie video games of 2018.
Check out the descriptions and trailers below for the new PS4, Xbox One, and PC zombie games:
