See our Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition Twitch stream contest winners!

Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game on Twitch for one hour and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed Stick it to the Man and dished out codes to ten lucky viewers.

Tonight we'll be gearing up for Halloween by playing Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition from Exor Studios. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out five Xbox One codes for Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition, plus two Steam codes! Even our unfortunate non-Xbox One owning brethren are welcome. Just follow me on Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch, watch along, and participate in chat for your chance to win. You can also watch the event right here live or after the fact.

Update: We had some technical issues but the show went on and prizes were awarded. Thanks to everyone who stuck with us!

Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition

Zombie Driver is a top-down driving game similar to Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2, only with a level-based structure and much more combat thrown into the mix. Players get to drive a number of vehicles, from taxis to buses to bulldozers across a zombie-infested city while completing objectives for a shadowy military organization.

Much of the game's fun comes from plowing through huge hordes of zombies of all shapes and sizes. But players also get several guns with which to blast the undead back into oblivion, including flamethrowers and rocket launchers. The gameplay doesn't vary too much, but there are several different kinds of levels and some challenging fights against gigantic mutated bosses.

The Ultimate Edition includes all of the content from the XBLA game, including the endless Slaughter mode and very challenging Blood Race mode. Whereas the 360 game suffered from various technical issues, the Xbox One version runs at 60 frames per second with twice the number of zombies per level and many new graphical effects. It also includes all previously released DLC, new car skins, and both "retro" and static camera options.

The Contest

We'll be streaming Zombie Driver for one hour tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 10 game codes:

  • 5 Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition for Xbox One
  • 2 Zombie Driver: Complete Edition for Steam

To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!

What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website , outside of the app.

I'll be available for a few minutes after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, please tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few contest and non-contest streams throughout the week.

  • You guys should do a review or something on twitch apps for WP or W8... There are a few out there. It would be great to get an app that has notifications of live streams starting.
