A new trailer for the World War Z game has arrived, based on the world of Marc Forster’s 2013 film, which was (very, very loosely) based on Max Brooks‘ 2006 novel. Now, it’s you who has to survive in a world overrun with the dead, as Saber’s Creative Director Oliver Hollis-Leick walks viewers through the challenges that away. You can check out the trailer in the player below!
World War Z’s co-op campaign takes place across four episodes, each containing three chapters, set in New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo. Before diving into a chapter, you will need to select a class and weapon loadout. Whether supporting the team with ammo and heals, specializing in explosives or unleashing devastating firepower, you’ll find a class suited to any playstyle.
In World War Z, every play session tells its own unique story of survival through the help of the AI director, which constantly adapts to the actions of you and your squad. For example, a stealthy approach is rewarded with far less zombies spawns, allowing you to conserve precious ammunition. When it comes to massive swarm events, struggling squads may also be granted additional defensive equipment such as an extra auto turret or mortar.
Alongside the narrative-driven campaign, players can also compete against each other in 4v4 across a variety of Player vs Player vs Zombies modes. This includes zombified twists on classics such as King of the Hill, Domination and Deathmatch, alongside the all-new Scavenge Raid and Vaccine Hunt modes.
World War Z is expected to launch on April 16.
