Those who are playing for a while knows that even in four player co-op mode, survivors have a hard time making it through Insane, which is the toughest WWZ mode and first thing you get in newest content update is an increased difficulty mode.

Of course this mode is designed to pit you against extreme level of threats and it is available for every single chapter. Now more than ever, players need to work as a unit and watch what they shoot with precision, to save ammo and resources.

Of course, rewards will come in form of efficient tools of zombie-killing for taking on such overwhelming challenge and completing even a single chapter on new difficulty mode will earn you iconic melee weapon, Wakizashi blade.

World War Z Season One DLC Roadmap

Saber Interactive reveals their post-launch free DLC roadmap for World War Z in coming months on 2019.

Although involvement of developer Saber Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive in the third-person shooter title World War Z was a bit assuring, many were doubtful whether or not it would turn out to be another zombie game.

After ruling over UK sales charts following launch, WWZ has most recently sold over one million copies within first week of its release. It got developers all worked up to reveal their roadmap for upcoming free DLC updates to show their appreciation.

Starting from June, a new mission will take survivors to Tokyo where they would come across a new type of zombie that spits a deadly virus. On top of that, these particular enemies can come back by resurrecting themselves if not dispatched properly.

Judging by their appearances, these undead were most probably subjected to some sort of experimentation forcefully before or after a global pandemic that granted them abilities that are stuff of nightmares compared to its brethren.

Then in June, another free update will add six-skull difficulty setting, which is suggested to be an extreme difficult level but it comes with bonus cosmetic items and exclusive rewards for dipping your toes into intense difficulty setting.

July would deliver a new weekly challenge mode that would bring some additional cosmetic accessories and useful items. Obviously, WWZ players on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would have access to these post-launch DLC updates.

Aside from these highlighted offerings, Saber Interactive studio also planing for features like a wave-based survival mode, ability for anyone to join private lobbies or switch between player classes while in PvPvZ matches and more.

World War Z post-launch DLC schedule seems pretty jam-packed and will surely keep survivors busy trying to outlive the dead. Despite initially having some connectivity issues, the game has successfully crawled back onto its feet again.

PlayStation Plus free games lineup has picked up The Surge and Conan Exiles for the month of April 2019.

Keeping up a good enough track-record so far with their free monthly games lineup, PlayStation Plus is giving hope to their monthly subscribers to look up for some decent titles to bring by the end of the month and they haven't messed up just yet.

Last month, PS Plus members got their hands on first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and puzzle platformer The Witness. If not matched enough with that, April 2019 is not looking for disappointing you at least.

Before jumping into what we are having on our hand for next month, let's take a quick look at the announcement video.




This month, suit up for some sci-fi action experience in a hardcore role-playing title The Surge by developer Deck13 Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive. It paints a dark future of humanity and offers you a lot of exploration as part of gameplay.

You play as protagonist character Warren in a dystopian future where he wakes up after a horrible surgical experience on his first day at work only to find out his entire workplace in ruins and been taken over by revolting robots.

Next up, we have a survival game titled Conan Exiles on our plate by developer/publisher Funcom that is set in the fictional world of Conan the Barbarian. Player character takes on a journey after being rescued from a death sentence by Conan himself.

Each time, a player starts with a character that has nothing but a single piece of cloth and then goes through a customization process of determining gender, voice and even religion before eventually heading on to a vast danger-filled hostile land.

We still have some time to grab onto those two games from PlayStation Plus lineup for March 2019 to pump into some classic FPS action or indulge ourselves within a mesmerizing world of The Witness to have fun solving unique puzzles.

We would also like to note that PlayStation Plus subscribers are now getting an extended cloud space of a whooping 100GB from Sony Entertainment for their saved games, which earlier was a small percentage of 10GB storage.

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.




RELATED: World War Z First Gameplay Trailer

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.

RELATED: Epic Games Store Launch Lineup Revealed

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.

RELATED: Overwatch on Humble Monthly Bundle

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.

RELATED: DayZ Coming to Xbox One

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 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.




RELATED: Metro Exodus Delayed to 2019

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.
