New Zealand first to go in the event of zombie apocalypse
New research to be released today reveals how Kiwis would cope in the event of a zombie outbreak. The envious rest of the country will be pleased to know that Jafas are the first to go in the event of the walking dead sweeping the nation as the research suggests that Auckland would be the fastest city to fall while Queenstown residents would be most likely to survive.
To mark the launch of new video game State of Decay 2, Xbox has partnered with the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) to conduct research based on how well Kiwis would handle the spread of a flesh-eating disease.
The research findings provide detail into New Zealand’s weapon of choice, how confident Kiwis would be to withstand such a threat and how desperate some would be to survive – with most respondents admitting they would sacrifice a neighbour to the walking dead over their family pet!
Please see attached release with additional research results, a first-look at the Zombie Survival Index ‘ZSI’ rankings, outbreak simulations and illustrations of what Auckland would look like "after the fall”.
