Game developer Ubisoft last gave us a fun zombie game for the Nintendo Wii U titled ZombiU, but due to the small amount of hardcore gamers who had the Wii U, the game did not get the fame it deserved. Ubisoft has decided to bring back ZombiU as Zombi to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the PC. ZombiU was a Wii U exclusive but that all changes on August 18, 2015, as a digital download. I missed this horror game also but you know I will be buying this game and testing it out now.
Press Release (via Gamasutra): "LONDON, UK--July 30, 2015--Today, Ubisoft (R) announced the development of ZOMBI, an upgrade of the acclaimed survival-horror game, coming as a digital download for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 18, 2015.
After being one of the Wii U(TM) flagship titles in 2012, ZOMBI returns to challenge gamers on multiple new platforms to find out how long they can survive in dilapidated, infected London. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded the city in a fog of death. Thousands have died, or worse, been infected by a sickness more gruesome than death. Once again, this fear-fueled first-person shooter invites all players to dive into the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the genre. The nail-biting survival experience has been optimized for PlayStation (R)4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC, using the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring gamers to a new level of horror.
Players will experience the original oppressive and intense elements that made ZombiU so innovative. The bug-out bag is a necessary component for survival for each player as it contains all the player’s tools, inventory, first aid kits, maps and more. With permadeath, players are faced with a death mechanic which puts them in the body of a different survivor each time they die. In order to retain the equipment they previously gathered in their bug-out bag, they are forced to track down their old, infected character. Should players risk it all to get their bag back or start scavenging anew?
