World War Z is becoming a videogame, because zombies are hot these days

Zombies are hot these days, and to capitalize on all the current crazes Saber Interactive will be adapting World War Z into a brand new videogame. Little details are available yet, but the trailer does feature lots, and lots, and lots of zombies, which pretty much tracks with how I remember World War Z going down.

Love zombies as much as the industry? Here’s the best zombie games there are.

The game itself will be a four player co-op, and is “inspired by” the film series, rather than being directly based on anything that happens in it or the book. No Brad Pitt or slow zombies then, we guess.

If you’re unfamiliar with Saber, they’ve done a lot of contract work over the past few years – helping out on things like Halo remasters and Quake Champions, as well as the slightly odd NBA Playgrounds this year. They also made the weird, ambitious, ultimately pretty flawed TimeShift back in 2007.

“World War Z’s co-op campaign focuses on unique survivor stories and missions around the globe, including New York, Moscow and Jerusalem. Use traps, barriers and the environment strategically to stay alive while unleashing a storm of firepower with a variety of weapons on the unrelenting hordes of the undead,” reads the official release. It’ll be out some time in 2018, presumably to line up with the movie sequel.
