Not to be confused with his iconic father (George A. is the acclaimed horror director of “Night of the Living Dead”), George C. Romero has collaborated with Free Reign Entertainment to develop “Romero’s Aftermath,” which is being described as the only “free-to-win massively multiplayer online survival horror game.” The game has been released today in Open Beta. 

The game, which is clearly inspired by Romero’s family lineage of monster lore, is set in an “expansive open world filled with lush forests, deserts, and fully explorable towns.” Gameplay is collaborative, and the creators promise zombies galore. 

You can play for free by downloading it from the game’s official website here, and it is also available for download on Steam. Watch a trailer for the game below.
