There are a few different Project Zomboid maps to start your game in, though these all connect to a much wider world, technically making them all part of one map in mid-90s Kentucky. Project Zomboid is a survival RPG that sees you attempt to last through an apocalyptic zombie event while making use of various skills such as cooking, electrics, trapping, first-aid, and much more. If you survive for a long time, you'll likely wander through a few of the Project Zomboid maps, so here's our breakdown of all the game's starting locations. 

Project Zomboid Maps: Muldraugh

Project Zomboid Starting Locations Muldraugh

The first of the Project Zomboid maps is Muldraugh, which is a small town in the middle of Kentucky, and is seen to many as the standard beginner town because it's easier to survive in than the other locations. It's also the starter location for many of the challenge game modes, and is set to be where the future story mode will begin. 

The town of Muldraugh is also full of low income inhabitants, so there is a lack of plentiful resources for survival, but also a lack of zombies, as many of the people of the town had abandoned it before the Knox Event began. This means there are a lot of mobile homes littered around, and abandoned shops, but the northern area of the town does have some larger homes and wealthier inhabitants. 

Project Zomboid Maps: Rosewood

Rosewood is a slightly smaller area, surrounded by lots of rural ground and forests, with the middle largely consisting of suburban homes. The town is a local community hub, and it contains a prison, courthouse, fire department, and police station, meaning there are lots of places to find high quality loot and items.

Most of these are packed into the centre, which can be heavy with zombies, but the prison is found on the outskirts and can be less risky. Rosewood also has a secret military base toward the southern area, which can be found through dirt roads, though there is a horde nearby that will have to be dealt with.

Project Zomboid Maps: West Point

The third Project Zomboid map is West Point, which is another small town, sat on the Ohio River and surrounded by rural farmland, which increases the map size by quite a bit, and allows for a more mobile hunter/gatherer play style. West Point also has some of the best looting locations in the game, thanks to the Enigma bookshop and the gun store, the latter of which will allow you to do some more daring looting.

This location is also the closest starter location to Louisville, which is the most populated area in the game, and has some of the best loot if you can survive the city. 

Project Zomboid Maps: Riverside

The last of the current starting locations in Project Zomboid is Riverside. It's another smaller town, that hugs the Ohio River. It's split by the east and west sides of the town, with the wealthier areas on the latter side, along with the country club which is a large area with some interesting loot. Riverside is also one of the more isolation starter locations, and is far away from the other areas that can be explored.

That's all for our guide on the Project Zomboid maps, and now players should be able to note the differences between each of the starting locations, and how that effects the early game.
