2023’s Free Zombie Survival Game Demo

There are many different features offered in this free zombie survival game. From simply looting around the island to in-depth crafting systems.

Whether you are a base builder or a PvP Chad, you will surely find what you need in ZSGO. Here is a brief overview of what is offered!

Once spawning in, it is quick to see that you have nothing but a knife, flashlight, and some food.

Luckily, within close reach, there are some vendors waiting to get your attention. If you decide to talk to them, one will offer you a free pistol with some ammo.

Of course, a weapon like this is crucial if you plan to survive what these zombie-infested lands have in store for you.


Was this 1 free pistol not enough loot for you?

Well, in this free zombie game’s demo, there is plenty of loot to go around.

Once talking to the traders, be sure to start your journey deeper into the island. Looting roadblocks, small towns, and even the nuclear power plant is vital.

Just remember, some places are far more dangerous than others. Is the risk worth the reward?

Once you prove you can survive one of these destinations, you may feel like you haven’t found what you wanted. What you NEED!

This is when crafting comes into play. Hit “TAB” and pull up that crafting menu!

You can proceed to find the resources needed to craft those items. As you make your way down the list of things to craft, you will stumble upon the crafting bench.

Zombie Survival Game Online offers different types of crafting benches for different needs. In this free zombie survival game version, however, the starting crafting bench will prove to be the best for a fresh spawn.

You will also notice some other interesting items you can craft; this includes the hammer and the building plan.

What could that be used for?


Ah yes, BUILDING of course!

Once you get this building plan, you can start chopping down some trees and get to building your own personal base! There’s no better way to survive zombies than hiding out in your sturdy base!

Just be careful, you had better put a lock on that door!

PVP & Raiding

So, there you are, all boarded up in your new base with a few scraps you managed to collect from the nearby town.

Steps approach your base and then quiet.

Beep… Beep!

A loud explosion goes off to your left and a fellow survivor is pointing his AR at you with a not-so-friendly facial expression.

Once spawning, it is quick to see that you have nothing but a knife, flashlight, and some food.

Updates to the Free Zombie Game

The Zombie Survival Game Online team has been tirelessly working to improve your free survival experience. Finally, we are excited to share with you the latest improvements and fixes in our new free demo update!

General Fixes

Here are some much-needed fixes to our free zombie survival demo.

Password Protected Servers

Now you and your friends can navigate through the demo island without fear of others trying to take your stuff. You better keep an eye out for zombies though!

Auto-Run Key

FINALLY, no more straining your fingers. Just tap x, sit back, and relax as your character runs through the land. Unfortunately, they will still run directly into danger.

Rad Cleanser

I won’t spoil it too much, but one of the vendors in the safe zone now has the option to cleanse your radiation levels for free!

Reusable Water Bottles

If you are out there looting and come across a water bottle filled with tainted water, you can now empty that bottle out and fill it with some clean water from the safe zone.

Gameplay Enhancements


Before, when you would sprint in a diagonal direction, you would have unlimited stamina! Now stamina is a far greater factor.

Safe Zones

There is no more loot in the safe zone! We noticed many people playing this free zombie survival game would just loot where they spawn and think that was the whole demo. Nope! Now you must go out there and get your hands dirty.

Bug Fixes

A tank with a screwdriver being used to fix it.

Floating Ghost Magazines

No more annoying mags floating around in the air!
