World War Z First Gameplay Trailer

Paramount Pictures and Saber Interactive offers us a new look at the co-op gameplay of upcoming World War Z video game.

When Paramount Pictures and Saber Interactive decided to announce upcoming World War Z video game based on director Marc Forster's 2013 blockbuster film of same name starring actor Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Inglourious Basterds), we were all bedazzled by it.

This third-person shooter is currently set to release in late 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Today, a gameplay trailer has been unveiled that gives us a first-look of how this four-player co-op experience it is going to be for everyone.

Even though there are no glimpse of Brad Pitt's portrayed character Gerry Lane anywhere in the clip, it is not any less exciting.

The gameplay trailer above takes us to one of in-game location of the snow-capped city of Moscow, where a small pack of survivors have banded together to form a sort of last stand against a huge infected populace running rampant.

On top of a building, they were preparing for an incoming wave with hatchets, mounted machine guns and barricades, which are not efficient at all. Then narrator explains that they are here to fulfill their sacred duty of freeing the souls of the damned lurking around.

Suddenly, hundreds of zombies start pouring from nearby buildings as unknown narrator protagonist and his three comrades goes into defensive positions. Then we see cut scenes of fast running zombies unleashes upon players trying to mow down humanity.

Each member of this undead swarm acts like rabid dogs and they are seemingly quite defiant at incoming bullet rain. Since World War Z is a four-player co-op action game, player task probably involves securing different bases from being overrun.

We just saw how bad things have gone for Moscow already and most probably, other major cities aren't doing any better. Paramount and Saber Interactive are most likely to feature New York and Jerusalem location in their upcoming trailers.

Hopefully, more information on World War Z will be revealed during E3 2018 and even a story trailer may release. Other than a few locations we saw before, it doesn't seem the game has any relation to the film and trying to cash-in on its overwhelming success.
