ZombiU story director Gabrielle Shrager spoke to ONM about the upcoming survival horror game’s multiplayer arenas. Gamers will be able to play together in St George’s Yard, which Shrager described as a ‘hell within hell.’ Shrager says the multiplayer arenas in the game are a spin-off of an actual area encountered in the single-player mode.
One multiplayer mode is called King Of Zombies, in which one player uses the Wii U GamePad’s 6.2-inch touchscreen to place zombies around a flag while the other player attempts to shoot them down by using the Wii U Pro Controller.
“You’ve seen the Tower Of London gameplay footage by now, so you know we are going to have to breach the Traitor’s Gate and penetrate the depths of the Bloody Tower to find the Raven Of Dee’s Secret Bunker, but you’ve never heard of St George’s Yard.
“St George’s is our hell within hell. Survivors here are unwilling participants in a twisted game in which they are thrown to the infected. Our multiplayer arenas are a spin-off of this mission in the campaign.”
