The Wii U will be here before you know it and with it comes the launch title that I am looking forward to the most, ZombiU. Zombies seem to make the world go round these days in the entertainment world and by bringing multiplayer to a game that is shaping up to be spectacular has me hopeful for good things to come.
In the game, an outbreak has infected the population turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter takes all the best elements of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to take down their old, infected characters and recover their life-saving equipment.
Additionally, ZombiU features a unique multiplayer mode that allows one player to take on the “King of Zombies” role, spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view (on the gamepad) like a god in the heavens, or South Park’s Kenny commanding angels with his golden PSP…I digress. Meanwhile the second player fights for survival o the big screen in a FPS environment. While I personally wish they would show more game footage in the trailer, it still gets the point across. Let us know what you think!
