Earlier tonight during The Game Awards, Saber Interactive announced World War Z for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Following the game’s reveal at that event, we have received a bit more information about the title alongside some screenshots showcasing both environments and gameplay.
World War Z, which is inspired by the 2013 movie of the same name, is a four-player cooperative zombie game where players must take on large hordes of enemy zombies together with a variety of different traps and weapons. The game has a co-op campaign with a story that spans across the globe, featuring places like New York, Moscow, and Jerusalem.
Matt Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive, had the following to say about World War Z:
“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.”
Meanwhile, Bil Bertini, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Licensing for Paramount Pictures, briefly talked about working with Saber Interactive on the title:
“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.”
The seven screenshots we got mainly focus on the giant hordes of zombies that players will have to go up against during the game. That being said, one screenshot does feature an airplane that is ready to take off, possibly hinting at one of the game’s set-pieces.
You can check out the new screenshots below. World War Z is expected to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in 2018.
