Maybe I am way off.

I saw this. This look awesome. I just did the Zombicide season 3. I love the fight against the ever spawning army and a few mistakes will kill ya.

I saw this and i love that it isn't zombies.

But is this same/different/similar to zombicide? I havent seen anyone compare it. I know it isn't out. But some people did the playtest. Or at least your impressions...

I just did the full kickstarter for zombicide and i ordered season 2,3 and all the expansions and add ons. So i'm very very very hesitant to spend this much money on another game that is basically the same.

It's not the same mechanism at all nor the same ambiance.
That's not zombies in Fireteam but more Chtulhu like monsters.

For heroes, it's not survival it's hunting.

And the design is a lot better in my opinion of course.


I think you can play both without having the sensation tu play the same game.

I think that similarities basically end with
"dudes on the map fighting monsters".

This should be much tightly tactical, heavily relying on the
deck-based abilities of each hero etc.
There is quite a lot of meaningful choices.
Zombicide is more like random dice-fest in comparison IMO.

Watch the gameplay videos, read the reviews. Perhaps it will help.

Have to agree with all of this. I see very few similarities at all. This is much more like an evolution of Gears of War with a heavy emphasis on team play, supporting other players, and managing your hand of cards.

If you watch the gameplay video you will see it is a very different game to Zombicide (which I really didn't like at all).

Then maybe that is a question I should ask. I was going to get gears of war for Christmas. Should I skip gears of war for this? I thought gears of war looks awesome.

Gears of War is cool but you need 4 dedicated players. The learning curve is steep but once you master the game it's pretty darn great!

It's on a massive sale on FFG's website, FYI.

I haven't played GOW but I hear it shares some mechanics. Personally I'd rather go with FTZ because it is an active product that will get more expansions and support going forward.

We've only ever played GoW with 2 players, and it's still great.

I'm so glad people don't think FTZ is like Zombicide. I loved the idea of Zombicide but found myself hating the stupid mutant zombies and the ridiculous friendly fire mechanics and the nature of having to spam either driving around or searching. That game is all fur coat and no knickers.

Quite sandboxy, so easy to alter.
