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.

If you are willing to go through every episode and all chapters and manage to outlive the massive swarms of dead, a very special sniper rifle variant will be a suitable reward for your dedicated efforts as it comes with unique gameplay perks.

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.

Other than going solo, WWZ allows for four-player to join in local or multiplayer co-op in a race to outlive the dead, battling hundred of ravaging zombies on screen throughout locations like Jerusalem, Moscow, New York and Tokyo.

As locations change, the game would send you after unique quests and pit you in different narratives without compromising on action. Working as a group is a key to survival and being unsuccessful at fending hordes will wipe you out.

You will get your hands on variety of guns, melee weapons for close-quarters combat and even rocket launchers at times to tear a hole into horde walls. There is also a PvPvZ mode to take a twisted turn at classic PvP battles by throwing zombies in it.

World War Z has fueled its rag-tag band of survivors with tragic backstory during a global pandemic and majority of its gameplay mechanics is designed to make co-op matches fun and really enjoyable by slaying a relentless undead army.

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.

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.
