World War Z: Aftermath Announced

Saber Interactive announces World War Z: Aftermath, another co-op shooter inspired by the zombie movie coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox one later this year. And while this will be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility, a native version for those systems will also follow next year. Word is the original World War Z game recently celebrated its 15 millionth player, and owners of that game will receive a loyalty discount on the new one. The follow up promises 4K|60 fps gameplay, a new melee combat system, a new first-person mode, full crossplay on PC and consoles, and more. The Reveal Trailer offers a look. Here are more details:
Powered by the next generation of Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z: Aftermath turns the tide of our fight for survival back against the undead. Join up to three friends or play on your own with AI teammates against hordes of ravenous zombies in intense story episodes across new zombie-ravaged locations around the world: Rome, Vatican City and Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula.

Key Features:

  • New Battles from a World at War: Play as both new and returning characters as you take the fight to the undead with a brutal new melee system, decimating zekes with unique moves, perks and dual-wield weapon options like the sickle and cleaver. Fend off new undead monstrosities, including swarms of flesh-hungry rats that will unleash total chaos on your team.
  • The Next Generation of Zombie Action: Play in glorious 4K|60 FPS on next-gen systems. Endure endless waves of increasingly difficult zombies in the new Horde Mode XL game mode, exclusive to PC, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S, featuring hundreds more zombies on screen than ever before possible (Horde Mode XL will arrive in a free post-launch update).
  • New First-Person Mode: Experience a heart-pounding new perspective with Aftermath’s immersive first-person mode option.
  • Deep Hero Progression: Level up eight unique classes — the Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Slasher, Medic, Fixer, Exterminator, Dronemaster, and all-new Vanguard class — each with their own perks and playstyles. Customize your weapons to survive any challenge, and conquer new daily missions with special modifiers for bonus rewards.
  • The Complete World War Z Experience: Aftermath includes all content from World War Z: Game of the Year Edition, including full episodes in New York, Moscow, Marseille and Tokyo.
  • Play With Friends Anywhere: Aftermath supports up to four-player co-op with full cross-play between consoles and PC.

It was an EGS freebie at least once, I doubt they'll give you a discount on Steam for having it there. Mildly amusing that this is releasing on Steam at all, since it came out in the trial document dump that WWZ was contractually a "lifetime exclusive." Apparently tacking on a subtitle and making it a standalone expansion (which, yes, includes everything that the existing GOTY edition does) lets them get around that.

You're right, I do have it from a giveaway on EGS, and yes, the $20 is only if you buy WWZ:A on EGS, not on Steam.

According to EGS I have 35min played in WWZ, I guess I wasn't that impressed.

So this is basically not a full sequel, just a remastered WWZ game(with some added content) for Steam/consoles? Which is fine, just wondering if we should expect it to be at like $30 or $60, etc.

I was somewhat interested when it was on EGS, but not enough to buy it there. They had a free weekend or something? I remember it being merely okay.

*EDIT* According to Steam forum people, $40 for new people, $20 if you already have WWZ, on EGS I assume.

Agree as well. This sort of grindy constantly mowing down the masses gets old really quick IMO. I much prefer the DL/DI experience.

I kinda just want a calm zombie game where the zombies can literally ignore you and you can walk by them. Then on occasion they sense you and try to go after you. I'll say, I think Dead Island got it down perfect. Still can't believe we don't have part 2 yet.

These swarm type games are Okay but get tiring after a while where it's just endling spraying.

Is this coming to Steam initially? Or only after another Epic exclusivity period?

This was one of the Epic exclusives that was actually worth picking up in my opinion. The co-op campaign is fun, and the horde mode is great. I'm looking forward to picking this up on Steam.
