Few things motivate me to run more than the threat of disembodied zombies pursuing me through city streets. For a while now, escaping the undead has felt dull and repetitive, as if I'm just going through the same motions over and over again. Fortunately, Six to Start is back with a brand new season of Zombies, Run! Fans of the fitness game have been eagerly awaiting a new chapter almost as fervently as Walking Dead watchers crave their favorite AMC hit.

For owners of the app, this update brings a refreshed look to the UI, revamps the base-building experience, and adds seven new missions to the storyline. To keep your blood flowing, the developer will begin launching new episodes every week, starting April 29th. Unsurprisingly, to get in on the weekly expansions, runners will have to drop a few extra bucks in the form of in-app purchases. The prices are very reasonable considering the amount and quality of the content.

  • Season Pass: $3.99 (currently $1.99 - 50% off)
    40 season 2 missions
  • Side Quests: $5.99 (currently $2.99 - 50% off)
    20 side quests
  • Season Pass Plus: $7.99 (currently $4.59 - 40% off)
    All 40 season 2 missions and 20 side quests

What's in this version:

- Season 2 begins! Seven free new missions, and new missions released weekly from April 29th. Find out what happened to Abel Township!
- Buy a Season Pass for access to the rest of the Season 2 missions as soon as they're released.
- A completely redesigned app and all-new new base building experience
Coming soon:
- Building add-ons
- Six race missions for 5K, 10K and 20K races
- Abel Radio will be back on the air very soon

Reviews in the Play Store indicate that the update is wiping out progress and causing some random crashes. If you already have time invested, it would be advised to wait on a fix before grabbing the new version.

If you're on the fence about having brain-hungry monsters motivating you to work up a sweat, check out our review of the original version. In celebration of the new season, the developer is putting the app (normally $7.99) and all IAPs on sale for half-off.

    Based on the video: Who the hell wants this?

      You really should check out some of the earlier videos. I think this one is intended for people who already know the game. The some of the videos, especially from the kickstarter campaign, do a better job of representing the idea.

      People who want to have some fun running.

      • http://www.deathbycone.com Jared Kotoff

        Doesn't look very fun. I can use my imagination for all this. Do you have to actually dodge/avoid zombies at any point?

        • Danielle

          Yes. When you have zombies on your tail, you have to run faster. If you don't speed up enough, the zombies catch you. You can check out the website if you want to know more; of course, if you're only here to continue expressing disinterest in an app you haven't played and have no interest in playing, let us know so that we don't have to worry about taking your questions seriously.

            I never was expressing disinterest. It was a question. The video looks bad and i was wondering if people actually wanted this app because I'm curious about it. Actually the opposite of disinterest.

            The first thing you said was, "Doesn't look very fun." Is that not an opinion, and Is an opinion not a form of interest/disinterest?

            I actually thought the video was pretty good, but it probably could have used narration.

          Essentially. They catch up, you run away, they breathe down your neck, you want to get the hell out.

    Apparently I purchased this app already. Thanks for reminding me AP!

    Weird, this update wiped the icon from my home screen and launcher. Had to reboot my Note II to get it back.

    While i have used this game/app quite a few times, it did make the run more enjoyable. that said, i hate running, so this only made running a little bit more enjoyable. If there was an option/story line for using a bike with this it would be better for me since i bike more than run. Also, i bike with a friend...if there was a way for two people or more to jointly work a base, and work as a team it would be the perfect app for me. But bravo on the concept, and even though i hate running, it's well worth the money...

    • james fox

      I would love if this app supported Bikes.

  • Jimmy Beaulieu

    Where are the missions for 5, 10 and 20k runs? I'm training for a half marathon and those would be great, but I can't find them in the app...
