Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Saber Interactive have announced the release date for World War Z.
The new cooperative shooter based on the World War Z franchise will launch across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer.
All pre-orders for the game include the “Lobo Weapon Pack” content, which nets you golden skins for the ARK-103 assault rifle, Keris V10 SMG, and 1911 Protector weapons, as well as the Lobo melee weapon – which Saber describes as “a dual-bladed spade perfect for making mincemeat of the undead.” Pre-orders are available here on the official website.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
While World War Z’s core four-player co-op pits players against relentless swarms of AI zombies, the “Players vs. Players vs. Zombie”-mode (PvPvZ) offers a completely unique experience, challenging you to outlive both the living and the dead across a variety of competitive modes designed for four-versus-four combat. 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.
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies at a time on players in a nail-biting action experience around the world, including New York, Moscow, Jerusalem and more. Play in co-op with up to three friends using six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps to demolish the undead menace and survive another day.
