Zombie Driver was first released on the PC platform in December 2009. Zombie Driver HD is a hugely expanded and improved new release and includes more than three times the content of the original. All those who already own the original Zombie Driver will be able to purchase it on Steam at a 50% discount.

The release of the Android version for Nvidia Tegra powered devices on Google Play has been moved towards the next week. The PlayStation®3 version of the game is currently in the final stage of development and it's release date will be announced soon.

EXOR Studios received a lot of questions about the differences between the old PC version and the new HD version. Here is a short description of the things that were improved in the past 2 years:

The original game had 17 missions - the HD version has 31 missions with much more gameplay variety. In the HD version, there are multiple different objectives like defending against waves of zombies, epic boss fights, spraying anti zombie repellent, driving special vehicles like the military truck, the tank or the bulldozer as well as bombing missions. The city is a lot more alive in this version because there are moving military vehicles, soldiers fighting with zombies or birds feeding on corpses. A bunch of in game cut scenes tells much more about the story than the previous version did. New enemies have been introduced in the form of zombie spawning infected buses, cargo containers or huge mutated mounds of flesh. The game is a lot more focused on using weapons against zombies which improves the pacing. There is a new Mission Select option that allows to play any mission with any already unlocked car, weapon or upgrade. The minimap is also one of the additions that were made to the HD version along with a large city overview map accessible at any time. Additional vehicles depending on the platform of your choosing. On Steam players can mow down zombies using a faithful recreation of the rescue van from the Left for Dead's Crash Course Campaign. On the Xbox 360 players are awarded with an exclusive super charged Hot Rod sports car. All DLC from the original game is also available in the HD release.

To sum things up - the original version of the Story Mode took about 4 hours to finish - the HD version Story mode takes about 8-12h to finish depending on the player.

There are also other numerous improvements and enhancements to the gameplay mechanics and graphics. These have been described in more detail at www.zombiedriver.com.
