Saber Interactive has unveiled the next map that will be playable in World War Z, the highly anticipated co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. The new ‘Stories In Tokyo’ gameplay trailer travels to Japan, where hordes of zombies will ambush survivors through narrow streets and dense urban jungles, battling players right up to the edge of the sea.
According to the press release, the Tokyo episode will feature two missions available at launch, with a bonus mission arriving for free shortly after release.
Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive, said:
“We’ve had such a positive response to the content that we decided to expand the core game and make four episodes spanning eleven levels available at launch.”
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine, World War Z promises to unleash hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies – able to move as one collective horde as well as break off as individuals units – at a time on players.
Players will be able to choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Players will outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.
World War Z is expected to launch on April 16th.
