During the PC Gaming Show today, two brand new games were revealed by Rebellion Developments – Evil Genius 2: World Domination and Zombie Army 4: Dead War.

On PC, Zombie Army 4: Dead War will be an Epic Games Store exclusive for one year after launch. It is one of several new Epic Games Store exclusives to be unveiled at this year’s PC Gaming Show. While the game is playable offline, it supports drop-in co-op for up to four players online. Even though its reveal trailer is purely cinematic, it does give us a better idea of what we can expect to see (flamethrower-wielding zombies!) as does the plot summary.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is set in 1946 and sees a band of heroes fighting against the Hitler’s army of Plan Z zombies when they reemerge despite the events of Zombie Army Trilogy. The game will see several levels based on locations in Italy, with a Venice level specifically being highlighted. The developers also confirmed that there will be a ton of skills, attacks, cosmetic items, and emotes for players to customize themselves with. Zombie Army 4: Dead War will also stand out from the typical Sniper Elite title when it comes to gameplay as it features special supernatural abilities like lightning strikes that players can use. And of course, Rebellion’s famous X-Ray feature will also be present in the game.
You can check out the first set of screenshots for the game below. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is hitting the Epic Games Store, PS4, and Xbox One in Early 2020 before hitting Steam in early 2021.
