Just wondering if the Zombie promos have special abilities, or are they just pretty versions of the standard zombies.zombie

Not sure. But I remember having seen a comment somewhere that with future expansions there will be special scenarios or game-elements that require the survivors' zombies.

All the best!

There WILL be an expansion early next year that include, but not limited to:
new characters, most likely the 2 custom ones sold via kickstarter
zombie versions of the base 6 survivors
rules for how to use the zombie characters

Your promo zombie characters will ship around the same time as the expansion. I find it unnecessary to invest in the new expansion since you will have 6 zombie characters hopefully and can just print off the rules from a friendly community member upload!

There WILL be an expansion next year that will include:
- new characters, most likely a cheerleader and a football team captain, as described here (college or high school themed?)
- zombie versions of the base 6 survivors
- rules for how to use the zombiefied characters

Since the promo characters, including the two sold via Kickstarter (Eva and Marvin), won't be included in the expansion, they are offering zombified versions "free" to Kickstarter supporters for use with the expansion when it comes out. That way, when you purchase the expansion, you'll have matching zombie versions of all your heroes.

Hi!

Yes, the zombie heroes have special abilities and can be played as "zombie survivors". Their gameplay is a little different; living and zombie survivors just complete perfectly.

I really hope the expansion doesn't feature promo models. I don't mind them selling the promos later but I don't want to have to buy them with an expansion if I already have them
