26 Games Like Unturned

Games Like Unturned
This page is full of games like Unturned where you can gather resources, build a base and fight zombies alongside your friends.

Unturned was one of the first free to play games to be launched in the survival horror scene at a time where many games in the genre were stuck in an ‘Early Access’ or beta stage of development. Despite being in development itself this allowed Unturned to quickly gain a massive following and shoot past similar games in terms of current players.

Starting with nothing in their inventory players must scavenge for weapons and resources from the blocky game world around them. In addition to the threat of zombies players also have to fight off disease, thirst and starvation, giving the game a realistic survival feel. With the addition of a simple skill tree allowing players to upgrade their health, damage or resistance to hunger you can drive the way you play.

The games like Unturned below offer a similar level of freedom to Unturned, these survival horror games all let you craft while battling with (and against) other players. In order for a game to be featured on this list it must be in the late stages of development or fully released.
