It’s been a few years now since Brad Pitt took the role of Gerry Lane to the big screen, in a mission to save his family from the lethal pandemic that was ravaging through the city streets and turning the worlds populace into vicious unthinking zombies. Now though that zombie experience is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC as announced at The Game Awards 2017 thanks to independent developer Saber Interactive.
World War Z will arrive as a four-player cooperative game inspired by the Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film franchise.
Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch was keen to share some news for the game and had this to say – “World War Z is a name synonymous with heart-pounding fear and action, and we’re excited to finally capture that energy in a fast-paced and gruesome experience crafted specifically for modern consoles and PC.”.
Rather than the traditional campaign we’ve come to see over the years, World War Z’s co-operative experience will see players focusing on different and unique survivor stories as well as engaging in multiple missions around the world. Key locations include New York, Moscow and Jerusalem.
Within the game there is plenty to fear and players will need to utilise everything in their arsenal from traps, and barriers to the large selection of heavy firepower that’s available to take on the relentless hordes that swarm the streets. With zombies often found climbing atop one another to reach higher ground, nowhere is safe in this upcoming co-op experience.
Speaking about the team behind the game, Bil Bertini, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Licensing for Paramount Pictures had this to say – “Saber has tons of experience working on high-quality games and they’ve done a great job capturing the massive, frantic hordes of ‘zekes‘ that sets our franchise apart. They have created a fiercely original experience in the rich universe of World War Z that fans are sure to love.”
Those interested in the upcoming co-op zombie adventure can look forward to the release of World War Z sometime in 2018.
