France and Germany Didn’t Get the Memo
Zombies. What are they good for? Absolutely nothing but video games and target practice. Video game publisher Focus Home Interactive has just released the launch trailer for World War Z, Saber Interactive’s co-op zombie shooter that brings everything we love about zombie games and then some. However, there’s a bit of a twist to today’s reveal since the launch trailer actually arrived alongside the game.
If you haven’t seen the latest trailer for World War Z, check a look. Somebody at the studio clearly wanted to pack as many zombies in a camera shot as possible. I can’t imagine trying to battle enemy players while staving off an undead horde, but the game lets you try. Below, you will find a deep dive into the sea of undead.
In a related mishap, it looks like French and German retailers have already started selling the game. How this happened is anybody’s guess, but the move has undoubtedly angered developers. The premature release has led to rogue copies out in the wild.
According to a report from WWZ Game Hub, World War Z is already in the hands of Twitch streamers. I had a look for myself, and yep; gameplay footage is there, online, and running smoothly. That is to say, the PlayStation 4 version seems to run without hiccups, a total surprise when you account for all the zombies. It’s still early, however, so performance caveats may reveal themselves down the line. Thus far, Saber Interactive’s Swarm Engine seems to be doing its job.
World War Z launches everywhere on April 16 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store.
