Game Description

“World War Z” is a cooperative third-person shooter video game developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Home Interactive. It was released on April 16, 2019, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The game is based on the 2006 novel “World War Z” by Max Brooks, as well as the 2013 film adaptation of the same name. In “World War Z,” players team up with up to three other players or AI-controlled characters to battle hordes of fast-moving zombies in intense and action-packed scenarios.

The gameplay is heavily focused on cooperative multiplayer and survival against overwhelming zombie swarms. Players can choose from a variety of characters, each with their unique strengths and abilities, and select from various classes, including Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Medic, Fixer, Slasher, and Exterminator. Each class specializes in different combat roles and has its set of skills that can aid the team in different ways.

The game features multiple episodes, each set in different locations around the world, such as New York, Jerusalem, Moscow, Tokyo, and Marseille. Each episode comprises several chapters with unique objectives and challenges for players to complete. Players must work together to defend positions, rescue survivors, gather supplies, and survive waves of zombie attacks.

“World War Z” employs a “Swarm Engine,” which allows the game to render hundreds of zombies on screen simultaneously, creating intense and cinematic moments as players fight off massive hordes of undead.

In addition to the cooperative multiplayer, the game also includes a competitive multiplayer mode called “Player vs. Player vs. Zombies” (PvPvZ). In this mode, two teams of players compete against each other while also contending with hordes of AI-controlled zombies, creating a unique and chaotic gameplay experience.

To further customize their characters, players can earn experience points and unlock various weapons, upgrades, and perks as they progress. These upgrades enhance the team’s chances of survival and create a sense of progression throughout the game.

“World War Z” is praised for its thrilling cooperative gameplay, challenging difficulty levels, and its faithful portrayal of the intense zombie swarm battles seen in the “World War Z” film. It has attracted a dedicated player base and continues to receive post-launch support and content updates to keep the game fresh and engaging for players seeking cooperative zombie survival experiences.
