Looking pretty solid, as usual. This is the best look we’ve had yet at the game’s upgrade system and difficulty levels – good to see the game will have some depth for those who want to master it. That said, the game should also be fairly accessible for newcomers (I had fun with the game despite not being a Left 4 Dead master). Haven’t been keeping up with World War Z? Here’s the game’s official synopsis:

Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine, World War Z unleashes 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. Choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, and battle both zombies and human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies multiplayer.

I’ve had a chance to go hands-on with World War Z, and trust me, the game is surprisingly fun. If you’ve got a few extra minutes, you can get additional info about World War Z’s zombie types, ties to the movies, and more in Wccftech’s full interview. Saber Interactive also recently unveiled a surprise fourth location for the game, Tokyo, which you can learn more about, right here.

World War Z shambles onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on April 16. What do you think? Excited to take on the horde? Or are you burnt out on zombies?
