12, Ubisoft, iOS With Nin­tendo’s Wii U about to launch next week, Ubisoft has got in early with a new app that hooks up with one of its flag­ship ti­tles for the con­sole, ZombiU. Build­ing some hype for the up­com­ing game, the app gives a pre­view of what to ex­pect once ZombiU hits. The app is de­signed to help you sur­vive the virus out­break that has turned friends and neigh­bours into zom­bies. First up is the in­fec­tion sim­u­la­tor, which takes a photo of you and then out­lines the progress of the dis­ease us­ing the photo. On day one, your skin gets clammy and you should head to quar­an­tine. By day three, your eye­sight is wors­en­ing and the crav­ing for hu­man flesh is tak­ing hold. At day seven, you’re look­ing worse for wear and de­com­pos­ing. You can record an emer­gency mes­sage to let peo­ple know you are safe from the zom­bie out­break. It comes com­plete with dodgy cam­er­a­work and a sur­prise pho­to­bomber. You can share these with friends, face­book and Twit­ter fol­low­ers. Ul­ti­mately de­signed to sell you the game, it’s still a bit of fun.
