Summary

Zombie Master: Reborn combines FPS and RTS experience into one terrifying package. Each round a willing player is chosen to be the Zombie Master. ZM's job is to summon and command zombies, and kill the remaining survivors. The unlucky who didn't get picked, assume the role of a survivor. Their goal is to stay alive and complete the map objectives.

Reviving your favorite FPS/RTS hybrid from the dead

Zombie Master: Reborn is a rebirth of one of the first Source mods, Zombie Master. ZMR aims to build upon the foundation of the original with new features and long overdue bug fixes.

It's been a while since the last update. Do not fret, we've been working as usual. This update required quite a bit of playtesting.



Beta 4


Viewmodels shown on the last article are finally here!



New main menu UI

Team specific keybindings

Female shamblers by Sage




Gun changes

The survivor arsenal has a weapon for every use. You have shotgun for short range, a rifle for long range and... a bullet-hose. Despite the variety, their mechanics are fairly simply; Aim for the head and click. One zombie at a time. With this update, we'd like to introduce another dimension. Another mechanic for a good player to take advantage of.

So, we went ahead and introduced bullet penetration to the rifle and revolver, and widened the shotgun spread while increasing per pellet damage and decreasing pump time. This will reward players who take their time to align shots and take risks. We understand that this is a pretty big change, and the impact that it will have on the horde. To counterbalance the change, the zombie spawn rates were slightly increased, especially for the workhorse of the horde: Shambler.


Giving full control to ZM

Why does it NEED to feel so awkward to be the ZM? Why does every action like hidden spawn have to be done with a mouse?
Even if the answer was BaLaNcE, you should never artificially hamper player's ability to do something like basic abilities. Having the power to bind every ability is standard RTS practice, and it's crazy we haven't had it this whole time. From this point on, we will.

Hidden spawning was underutilized. The only reason to use it was to block survivors' path through a doorway or give survivors zombies to shoot on a boring level. Now, ZM is able to spawn cheaper and faster. The cost is based on proximity to other zombies. It's a lot easier to show it:

I wish that there was somekind of a range attack zombie, because sometimes survivors get into places that zombies can't reach and even banshies can't

Can't wait for yet another take on Zombie Master to end up dying out once it's fully out... It looks great that people still care for ZM, I'm just afraid it will happen like the original ZM, ZM Black and ZM2...

Where it just ends up dead, cause I had great fun with ZM, loved crocodile and the ship map... Sadly ZPS got a ton of people while ZM died, heck ZM was unique as heck yet it died, hope this project excels and manages to live long if not longer than zps.

Best of Luck with this project, I want to see it final, and I want to see it live!

if you don't want the game to die, then take initiative and play it. games only die with people stop caring about them, and we kind of owe it to these guys to keep playing it.

can you guys add it so that when player dies, his corpse wakes up after few seconds and becomes an npc zombie? Like npc zombie but with same model that player had when he died.

We toyed around with this idea, we may add it in the future but for now we're working on other things.

Thank you for bringing this back. This was absolutely my favorite mod for forever and I'm glad it's being worked on once more.

Glad you're liking it, maybe someday we can bring the player-base to what it was in the good days.
