You can play against any player you meet, however instead of the game being player vs player. Player are instead in teams with each time they defeat a member of the opposite team or level up they contribute to their teams level.
The game’s story goes as follows, after the discovery of the Higgs Boson by scientist. It is then also discovered that the after is seeded with Exotic Matter associated with the mysterious alien race taking over Earth.
The gameplay is made up of a minimap and also a gameplay screen where the player can see all the ‘gameplay’ and action. Similar to Pokemon GO players must be near objects to interact with them, there is also a random placement system meaning that everyone has the same chance of finding something if he plays long enough.

Zombie, Run! is a augemented game that was first focused on runners or walkers looking to spice up their out door activities.
