ZombiU Confirmed For PlayStation 4, Xbox One And PC Renamed Zombi

Today, Ubisoft announced the development of ZOMBI, an upgrade of the acclaimed survival-horror game, coming as a digital download for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 18, 2015.

After being one of the Wii U flagship titles in 2012, ZOMBI returns to challenge gamers on multiple new platforms to find out how long they can survive in dilapidated, infected London. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded the city in a fog of death. Thousands have died, or worse, been infected by a sickness more gruesome than death. Once again, this fear-fueled first-person shooter invites all players to dive into the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the genre. The nail-biting survival experience has been optimized for PlayStation4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC, using the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring gamers to a new level of horror.

Players will experience the original oppressive and intense elements that made ZombiU so innovative. The bug-out bag is a necessary component for survival for each player as it contains all the player’s tools, inventory, first aid kits, maps and more. With permadeath, players are faced with a death mechanic which puts them in the body of a different survivor each time they die. In order to retain the equipment they previously gathered in their bug-out bag, they are forced to track down their old, infected character. Should players risk it all to get their bag back or start scavenging anew?

  1. It’s not an upgrade its been degraded, now your stats are on the tv, and they axed out the multiplayer, this is prob gonna be a bare-minimum release on those systems, and I hope it fails miserably, like many said before now it’s a generic zombie game.

    1. Dude they had no choice. Zombi U got a series of BOGUS REVIEWS when it debuted. This is the only way they could revatilize the franchise.

      Shit! The so called Wii U crowd didn’t show up to support it! So this is their only option.

      5. From what I hear, ZombiU is like The Walking Dead: using a gun in a city full of zombies is a very bad idea as it draws way too much attention to yourself. Not many zombie movies use the fact that zombies can still hear & that using loud weapons like guns does more harm than good.

      6. ZombiU got an overall Metacritic score of 77 so I wouldn’t say it got a whole lot of BOGUS reviews and as far as the ” so called ” Wii U owners not supporting the game situation goes, that’s not true. The game has sold 830K copies to date, so try again

      7. That’s 830K in nearly 3 years. Less than half a million of those sales came from its first year on sale, which also makes ZombiU the most successful third party game on Wii U… That’s not something to be proud of when third party games barely sell for crap on the system.

    2. I really hope the same. But when WiiU was release it was an amazing game for the console. Now there are a lot of zombies games. This release is not making any improvements in any parts of the genre or gameplay for what it seems, in fact the gameplay will suffer because this was designed for wiiu.
      Sorry but i hope it fails miserable too. WiiU must have this as an exclusive, and a good sequel would help WiiU attract more gamers, but oh man it’s Shitysoft doing stupid decisions all over again. It happens with Rayman, too; and what they get? POOR SALES MOTH… FU…!!!

  4. I actually loved ZombiU, but I play for fun, not graphics. Yes, it was very glitchy, but I thought that kinda added something to the gameplay, kind of like the original Resident Evil games. I was really hoping for a ZombiU 2 that would fix the problems from the first game. Ubisoft screwed us, yet again, so I have no desire for Zombi to succeed on any other platforms. If anything, maybe this will encourage more WiiU owners to try out this game. The use of the gamepad was amazing and probably the best it has been utilitzed by a game.

      1. Developers have said that the Wii U isn’t difficult yo develop for, probably a lot easier than it was fir PS3.

        The problem isn’t the hardware. I guess the penny will finally drop for people when the NX comes out, “Hey the NX supports UE4” still has no third party support.

      2. Part of the problem IS the hardware. Sure they can develop for it but that means they’d spend a lot more time making the games work on the Wii U than they will for the PS4 & XB1 since it’s vastly different from them. Most developers these days prefer multiplats over exclusives & the Wii U is not very multiplatform friendly if they want to get all versions out at the same time. So as I said, everyone is to blame, not just Ubisoft.

      1. I did play Dues Ex, and have since traded it, while ZombiU still provides suspense and fun years after release.

        Dues Ex was good, but
        1. Totally different genre. We are praising ZombiU for being an epic survival Horror, not a shooter-adventure.
        2. The NPC’s in Dues Ex kept saying the same thing, and different NPC’s would say the same thing as others. AC4 has way better NPC’s.
        3. Yeah, DEx used the gamepad well, but it wasn’t as good as ZombiU. In ZombiU the thrill was Heightened by using the gamepad as your bookbag (bug-out bag) and it felt like you were really exposed when using it. It was amazing use of the gamepad in terms of gameplay AND adding to the ambiance of the game.

        Back off ZombiU or I’m coming after DEx! :)
