World War Z PvPvZ Mode

Outlive the dead and living in action-packed "Player Vs. Player Vs. Zombie" mode of upcoming co-op shooter World War Z.

Set within the same universe of the titular live-action movie of 2013, third-person shooter game World War Z from developer Saber Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive offers much more gameplay aspects than its genre.

Aside from tackling post-apocalyptic horror of massive zombie hordes, there will be a PvP multiplayer mode but unlike their typical counterparts, the studio chose to go on a different route to make things interesting for everyone.

You can check out a preview of how the PvPvZ mode will work out in WWZ in the official trailer below.

A number of competitive team-based combat systems are shown in the trailer and each unique type has something exciting to offer to players. Both "Scavenge Raid" and "Vaccine Hunt" are two objective based plays as their name suggests.

Swarm Deathmatch are for two groups of survivors to effectively try and eliminate others with zombies constantly getting into the mix to make things difficult than it already is. Swarm Domination is about capturing a zone by overtaking all obstacles to win points.

King of the Hill is for either of the teams to secure a key vantage point to get advantage over enemies. Outlive the dead in a four-player cooperative effort to establish your territory over every hostile party that opposes you.

Undoubtedly, the in-game world of the title has a lot of potential to create a legacy of its own and Saber Interactive decided to play with that idea a little bit by introducing a new PvP game mode into the mix between the hunters and the hunted.

Survivors will band together in exploring Jerusalem, New York and Moscow for refuge and supplies while fighting the undead on the go. Zombies in the game are not just fast and relentless; they can easily overwhelm a group in a few moments.

Even though World War Z has no official release date announced yet, the game is set to launch in 2019 for PC exclusively via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. WWZ is clearly looking to live up to Max Brooks' original novel it is based on and more.

Insurgency: Sandstorm Delayed to December

The anticipating release of team-based FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm is now delayed to end of the year only week before launch.

So far, the beta for upcoming multiplayer tactical first-person shooter Insurgency: Sandstorm was doing fine with a realistic approach to gameplay, co-op and PvP modes while waiting to release on September 18 for almost all available platforms like Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

However, only less than a week ago, the game has been delayed to the end of the year by developer New World Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive for optimizing issues.

Even if your try to run Insurgency sequel on a high-end setup, you have to set most of the setting options to "low" just to keep it running, according to the Reddit and Steam Community. Then the decision is made by all parties involved considering those serious spec issues to officially move the release date to December 12, 2018.

Meanwhile, the developers intend to continue working on the issues to make improvements over that and deliver an update that offers a seamless PC experience for players.

In the delayed period of time, New World Interactive intends to upgrade the game to Unreal Engine 4.20 for better optimization. Improvement over animations, character model design and textures are also on their priority list as well as adding some extra cosmetic items.

Trying to remove all bugs, glitches and adding a few more server options to make a better version of the game is also part of the plan. These two months are entirely dedicated to the best interest of their community.

Since the console versions of the game are already delayed earlier to 2019, it is highly unlikely that they would push back that day even further. While they polish the game to run in a lower system requirement, the beta is now extended until the launch date along with the 10% pre-order discount over the $26.99 full-price.

Those who own the original Insurgency game can enjoy 10% loyalty discount till the end March 2019. Considering other rushed titles, it's a good Early Access game.

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 an upcoming World War Z video game based on director Marc Forster's 2013 blockbuster film of the same name starring actor Brad Pitt, we were all bedazzled by the news. The game is currently set to release in late 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Today, they have unveiled a gameplay trailer that gives us a look of how this four-player co-op experience it is going to be for players.

Even though we don't see any glimpse of Brad Pitt's portrayed protagonist character Gerry Lane anywhere in the clip, it is not any less exciting.




RELATED: Metro Exodus Delayed to 2019

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

Suddenly, hordes of hundred zombies start pouring from nearby buildings as unknown narrator and his three comrades goes into defensive positions. Then we see cut scenes taken from the game showing us huge mass of fast running zombies unleashes upon players trying to mow down humanity like rabid dogs and they are seemingly defiant at the incoming bullet rain. Since World War Z is a four-player co-op action game, their task probably involves securing base from being overrun.

We have just seen how bad things went for Moscow with this clip. Paramount and Saber Interactive will probably feature New York and Jerusalem in their upcoming trailers. Hopefully, the game will reveal more information during E3 2018 and can even reveal a story trailer or something like that. Aside from venturing some locations we saw before, it doesn't look like that the game has any relation to the film it is based on and just trying to cash-in its overwhelming success.

World War Z Game Announced

Based on the fictional works of author Max Brooks, 2013's zombie flick World War Z by director Marc Foster broke into the mainstream movie race by smashing the box-office and becoming the highest-grossing zombie movie of all time. A huge credit for this success goes to actor Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Inglourious Basterds) for his Hollywood stardom. The franchise is now getting a video game adaptation of its own by Saber Interactive and Paramount Pictures.

At the night of 2017 The Game Awards, came the big announcement of World War Z video game and the reveal trailer gave us a quick look at what sort of zombie wave players are going to face in the game.




Saber Interactive's World War Z is going to be a four player co-op survival shooter with lot of actions set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by the undead. Players will be carrying out mission across the globe in various locations as Moscow, New York and Jerusalem. Something tells me that we are going to re-visit a few places we saw in the film. The trailer also suggests that there will be situations in-game where hundreds of walking dead will swarm the screen.

Developer Saber Interactive has expertise in the field of quality game making and they have already worked on projects like Inversion, Quake Champions and Timeshift. So, hopefully their experience will help create another upcoming blockbuster game. Paramount Pictures wants to give players a unique experience that is based on the World War Z universe and those who loved the movie in the first place are going to love the game even more.

Currently, World War Z will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One once it comes out. The game will test your survival skills with not just the capacity to shoot and neutralize your undead enemies but also to save your skin using barriers, traps and your surroundings. Though no official release date is announced yet, the game is expecting a 2018 outing.
