Since its launch, Saber Interactive has been hard at work alongside Focus Home Interactive in order to bring more content to World War Z. With more than a million units sold, the team is gearing up for a massive flow of content in the next 90 days.
Recently released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store, World War Z has delivered an unlikely experience that Left 4 Dead fans have been waiting for, bringing in a unique story set in an established universe, features they’ve been wanting, and even a narrative that could break one’s heart as the zombie outbreak fills our planet with the armies of the undead themselves.
The team at Saber Interactive has set out to make that story even bigger, announcing that in May, they’ll be releasing a brand-new mission set in Tokyo, alongside a brand new terrifying zombie that can spit a deadly virus alongside a resurrection of other zombies if they aren’t properly killed. Alongside it comes a new update in June which will include a new six-skull difficulty setting alongside brand new rewards as well as cosmetics, and plenty more.
In July, you can expect to see a Weekly Challenge mode appear, offering the chance for avid players to unlock new cosmetics and other yet-to-be-announced equipment. The equipment includes brand-new weapons to try, which could also mean one thing: New classes. Luckily, the story isn’t the only thing getting some fixes and content drops.
The team has also announced that other major updates are in the works, which include a wave-based survival mode, private lobbies, the ability to switch classes during the PvPvZ mode, a FOV slider, level of detail sliders on PC, alongside various gameplay option improvements. These Quality of Life additions are a welcome sight after our review, stating, “Overall, for its price, World War Z isn’t an unfair package as a title of its kind. With the ability to add more content later, repair its unbalanced multiplayer, and hopefully deliver an experience worth undertaking in the future. In its current state, it’s just a short-lived experience without any longevity to it.”
