I’m starting to get more excited by the day for this one.
Not sure if the gameplay is going to be quite limited.
Looks nice though and the advanced zombie AI is a nice change from the usual model.
Zombies seem kinda slow for WWZ, but it probably wouldn’t make that great of game play if you have 500 zombies running at you at 45 MPH.
I like the stacking though. Climbing too. If they’re smart and there’s lots of them then it’s still pretty exhilarating.
Has a division look and feel from the character movement and shooting.
Maybe it’s me but the game doesn’t look too good.
If you’re going to adapt the film World War Z , which itself is an adaptation of Max Brooks’ novel, you’re going to have to nail the universe’s shifty, fast-moving hordes. The imagery of sprinting zombies literally forming undead pyramids as zombies scale the masses below them is burned into the brains of anyone familiar with the movie, and it’s clear the team behind the game knew this task was theirs to complete. This new trailer from the crowded halls of Gamescom highlights how Saber Interactive has replicated this trademark for the upcoming four-player co-op shooter.
Alongside the trailer comes a few new screens, if the zombies are too fast and you prefer them at a standstill.
World War Z arrives in 2019.
Could be interesting - even if just to see how the zombies work - like I played Dead Rising for a couple of hours just to mess around with different ways to kill zombies in a shopping mall…
World War Z Trailer Showcases the Player vs. Player vs. Zombie Gameplay
Saber Interactive has released a new trailer for the upcoming World War Z, which aims to showcase the frantic and exciting gameplay that the title’s player vs. player vs. zombie multiplayer will offer.
Inspired by Paramount Pictures’ action film of the same name, World War Z 's core gameplay experience focuses on four-player co-op as you and your team fight their way through swarms of AI-controlled zombies. The newly announced “PvPvZ” multiplayer will offer a “completely unique experience, challenging you to outlive both the living and the dead across a variety of competitive modes designed for 4v4 combat.”
You can watch the trailer below:
What separates PvPvE in World War Z from other multiplayer games is the zombie swarm, which storms the arena throughout the match, forcing players to battle both each other and the undead and allowing the tide of the fight to turn in an instant. World War Z will launch with the following multiplayer modes:
- Scavenge Raid: players race to secure resources across the map to win
- Vaccine Hunt: players must pick up and hold an object to earn point for the team.
- Swarm Deathmatch: Two teams go head to head in a bitter fight to the end
- Swarm Domination: Capture zones to earn points and win a team victory
- King of the Hill: Capture a single hill, then control it to earn victory points
World War Z is scheduled for release later this year.
