Zombie aficionados are going to want to book a flight to Australia to play Patient 0. Patient 0 is an IRL zombie shooter played with real actors and kick-butt laser guns. The game is attempting to simulate a zombie attack with unparalleled realism, while also giving gamers a chance to experience Patient 0 in a way that's familiar.

The realism from Patient 0 comes from the actors and the weapons. All of the game's zombies will be actors trained in the art of the walking dead. The game's guns do fire lasers, but they are designed to be as real as possible. The guns are models of actual weapons, and they can track hits, including friendly fire. Muzzle flashes and recoil may also be implemented into the weapons.

The gaming side of Patient 0 comes from its stat tracking, mission objectives and boss characters. The game is set to open on October 31st, and will be set up in cities around Australia. Stats for Real-Life Zombie Shooting Games Trending: Older & Mild
