Today the official launch trailer for World War Z was released, casting aside previous trailers’ attempts at showing story and giving us look at the gameplay in all its gory glory.
Based on the 2013 movie of the same name, World War Z is a co-operative third-person shooter developed by Saber and published by Focus Home Interactive. Set in a world overrun with fast, swarming zombies, your job is containment – to mow your way through horde upon horde of them across the world.
The trailer gives us a look at the varied locations the game will be set in, like New York, Jerusalem, Tokyo, and Moscow. The game has both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, the latter of which supports up to four players. The trailer details the scope of these, from narrative singleplayer campaigns to co-op and PvP.
This is effectively the game’s final pitch for anyone still on the fence about Word War Z before its release on the 16th. If you’re unfamiliar with the title, check out the synopsis from the official site:
“World War Z is a thrilling four-player cooperative third-person shooter featuring massive swarms of zombies that recklessly rush their living prey.
Focused on fast-paced gameplay — and based on the incredibly popular Paramount Pictures property of the same name — World War Z explores new storylines and characters from around the world in tense, overwhelming, gruesomely exciting missions crafted specifically for modern consoles and PC.
The swarm feels neither fear nor mercy. It rolls forward to spread and consume. Together, make your stand and unload an arsenal of deadly weaponry into these hundreds of swarming zombies.
Feel the satisfying rush of life as you cheat death and prevail against such overwhelming odds. Cut the undead down with rocket launchers, machine guns, sentries, turrets, grenade launchers, barbed wire, and more.”
