Former Wii U exclusive title, ZombiU, hopes to find new players as it ditches the U and makes its digital way to PC, PS4 and Xbox One for £14.99.
Zombi puts players in the middle of an infected London, where an outbreak has distorted the population into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. The overall game is still intact and delivers all of the intense chaos and tension to multiple new platforms. In this updated version, a number of updates have been introduced for the latest consoles including new melee weapons, faster load times, improved flashlight gameplay and improved visual effects.
It also puts an emphasis on self-preservation and pushes players to do whatever it takes to survive against the zombie attack enforcing the feeling of suspense and oppression by disabling the pause function even while players search through the bug-out-bag in the menu. A necessary component for each player’s survival, the bug-out-bag contains all their tools, inventory, first aid kits, maps, and more.
The game also relies on the permadeath system where character death is final, forcing you to respawn as a new character without your previous inventory collection or bug-out bag.
Should players risk confronting their old, infected character to get their bag back or abandon their inventory and start again?
