Indie developer Saber Interactive announces World War Z, a four-player co-op
game based on the zombie infested film franchise. They plan this for release in
2018, well behind the 2013 release of the first movie but in advance of the
planned 2019 release of World War
Z 2. An official website is online for the
project, offering this trailer.
Here's the plan:
Independent developer Saber Interactive has announced
World War Z, a new four-player cooperative game inspired by Paramount Pictures’
blockbuster film franchise. Featuring massive swarms of zombies who rush their
living prey, World War Z is in production for the PlayStation®4 computer
entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
“World War Z is a name synonymous with heart-pounding fear and action, and we’re
excited to finally capture that energy in a fast-paced and gruesome experience
crafted specifically for modern consoles and PC,” said Saber Interactive CEO
World War Z’s co-op campaign focuses on unique survivor stories and missions
around the globe, including New York, Moscow and Jerusalem. Use traps, barriers
and the environment strategically to stay alive while unleashing a storm of
firepower with a variety of weapons on the unrelenting hordes of the undead.
"Saber has tons of experience working on high-quality games and they've done a
great job capturing the massive, frantic hordes of 'zekes' that sets our
franchise apart,” said Bil Bertini, Executive Vice President of Worldwide
Licensing for Paramount Pictures. “They have created a fiercely original
experience in the rich universe of World War Z that fans are sure to love.”
