Announced in the IGN Expo last week, World War Z: Aftermath is the next step for World War Z and it is looking tasty with 4K resolution and 60 frames per second gameplay on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
World War Z, which draws on the original material from the book while occurring in the same universe as the film, released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2019. Since then, the game has seen over three million sales across the globe, an upcoming Nintendo Switch version and over a quarter of a million followers of World War Z on Twitch. Following this success, Saber Interactive has taken the series to the next level with Aftermath, powered by pushing the envelope of the proprietary game engine Swarm Engine that creates these hair-raising hordes of zombies.
Check out the trailer for World War Z: Aftermath here, boasting brand new enemies and brand new methods for dispatching the undead.
Excitingly, Aftermath is bringing players "all-new story episodes in Rome, Vatican City, and the Russian far east at Kamchatka," as well as stunning new mechanics with which to keep the bloodthirsty monsters at bay. "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," said Saber Interactive on the game's official website. What's more is that the game is getting a first-person mode that surely won't be for the faint of heart, especially when you consider the Horde Mode XL. This does what it says on the tin, and is exclusive to the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X and S versions of Aftermath. Players will fend off endless waves of an onslaught of brutal zombies, "featuring hundreds more zombies on screen than ever before possible."
World War Z: Aftermath comes to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in 2021, with upgrades for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S arriving in early 2022. There will be a Deluxe Edition which bundles a bonus weapons pack and weapons skins and it will be priced at $49.99 or $29.99 if you already own World War Z.
