Sleeper Hit World War Z Finally Gets Weekly Challenges in Proving Grounds Update

World War Z Season 1 concludes with Proving Grounds update that adds Weekly Challenges and new weapon.

After Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive’s World War Z proved to be a sleeper hit just a couple weeks after its release, the developers highlighted several features they planned on adding to the game through free updates. They have been sticking to schedule and releasing these updates as planned, and today the Proving Grounds update arrived. Proving Grounds brings one major new element to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One zombie game: Weekly Challenges.

When players choose to partake in these Weekly Challenges, they will be able to go World War Z matches with interesting gameplay modifiers that may make all weapons one type or make players take damage if they are too close to another player. If these challenges are completed, players will get a currency unlocks items that can be used to customize characters like headgear, backpack attachments, and color schemes. Weekly Challenges are the major draw of the Proving Grounds update, but this update does also add a new weapon, the FN FAL battle rifle as well as the expected bug and quality of life improvements.

As Proving Grounds finally delivers on everything promised month ago, Saber Interactive is saying that this update closes out “Season 1” of World War Z’s post launch support. World War Z support isn’t dead by any means though, as a Season 2 that will have a “new survival mode, PvE maps, special zombie, gameplay updates, and even more skins” is on its way. DualShockers will let you know when that content arrives.

A new trailer highlights the new Proving Grounds content, and you can watch that below. World War Z is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and can be picked up on Amazon.
