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.

Renowned studios like Annapurna Interactive, Supergiant Games, Team17, THQ Nordic and Tripwire Interactive are joining up the march to give tough competition to other platforms in the market and to make a long-lasting impact at the same time.

To get into the already dense competition, they already announced staggering 88% sales revenue for publishers who want to launch their tiles with Epic Games Store and even promised to cover the royalty sales percentage for using Unreal Engine in game developing.

To make the new marketplace more developer-friendly, Epic is introducing a revenue-sharing system Support-A-Creator, building a bridge between developers and content creators to allow them great access over how to market their product and present to audience.

As they already have a history of working on titles like Gears of War trilogy, Unreal Tournament and the over the top success of Fortnite, Epic has re-branded them in the industry with a strong backbone to enter the world of digital distribution business.

In recent years, Valve has come under fire for their actions on lack of curation on the platform and Steam Direct program but still considered as a tycoon in the market. CD Projekt tried to venture the industry with their GOG distribution service but couldn't become a worthy rival in a decade.

Epic Games has their independent launcher like Activision and Bethesda, which acts as an extension for the store. The upcoming contest over the control of market share in 2019 will be fun to watch as we may witness a shift in power after all these years.

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.

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.

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.

Though no official release date is announced yet, the game is expecting a 2018 outing.
