WORLD WAR Z
FORMAT PS4 / ETA 2019 / PUB PARAMOUNT PICTURES DEV SABER INTERACTIVE
Based on Paramount’s movie franchise (which is in turn based on Max Brooks’ bestselling book), this is a zombie game with some serious clout. But nothing delivers more shock and awe than the series’ hordes, which are all about sheer density in the swarm – replicated gruesomely here in the game. Hundreds of “zeke” (that’s what they call zombies in the films/novel) are on screen at once, and they feel like one big force of nature. It’s so intense, developer Saber Interactive had to build a Swarm Engine specifically for it.
