World War Z Sets Release Date With Biting New Trailer (VIDEO)
Evoking the corpse-raising Left 4 Dead series of yesteryear, World War Z has been turning heads as of late with its wild interpretation of the walking undead. Seeing as Valve’s seminal zombie-hunting series is very much on the backburner (they can’t count to three and all), the latest title from Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive has been looking like it could be the next best thing.
While what we’ve seen so far of the four-player adventure has been little short of thrilling, but one of the more underwhelming aspects of the action-packed shooter has been its long-ambiguous release date. Since last year, the game has been victim to extended delays, but it appears this indefinite hiatus is no longer in session. World War Z has now been confirmed for an April 16th release, Focus Home announcing the anticipated news with an appropriately exciting trailer. Check it out below alongside an official description.
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies at a time for a one-of-a-kind action experience. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs Players vs Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer. Play in co-op with up to 3 friends using six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps to decimate the undead and live to fight another day.”
World War Z will release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 16th.
