The game works better if played 2+, but it could be eventually played solo.

Thanks.

Can you explain why it works better with 2+ players? Is it because the game is harder to win if you play solo, or is it because there are interactions between players that are an essential part of the game?

Rich,

this is a cooperative game and it is clear that the interaction among players is giving spice to the game experience.

If you play solo, using two or three characters, you will miss big part of this experience because you will apply your own strategy and you will not have to deal with other players choice or unexpected decisions or mistakes.

But the game works in solo mode as well.

I hope it helps.

Thanks

percy

Fortunately for me I often forget my own strategy and make mistakes while playing games solo. So, for me, it'll be win-win.

I am intrigued by the game and can't wait to see more. Love co-op/solo games.

Thanks for clarifying that

I am still very interested in this from a solo perspective - so will continue to follow developments / news with interest.

Cheers !

Yes you can play solo.

It's the game that manages the zombies so whether you're on your own or six players it's all the same to them.

Cheers
