World War Z, the Saber Interactive zombie shooter released on PS4 and Xbox One a couple of years ago, has arrived on Nintendo Switch today. The release trailer (which has an age limit and therefore, unfortunately, cannot be embedded on the site) is can be viewed here…
Inspired by the movie of the same name by Paramount Pictures, the game features players fighting for the survival of humanity against the undead, either alone or in co-op mode for up to four players. You can play through episodes of the story campaign, which takes place in New York, Moscow, Jerusalem and Tokyo, and fight all the zombies you could ever wish for in several game modes. Other modes, such as Horde Mode Z, will arrive later as a free DLC update.
