World War Z is becoming a video game

From Paramount and Saber Interactive

World War Z, the zombie apocalypse novel turned movie, is now becoming a video game. The game, simply titled World War Z, was revealed during today’s The Game Awards.

Developed by Saber Interactive, the studio whose work includes shooters like Inversion, Timeshift and Quake Champions, World War Z is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

The trailer for World War Z featured some of the familiar zombie horde imagery seen in the film of the same name, namely hundreds of zombies filling the screen and climbing over each other to form human structures.

In a press release, Saber Interactive said World War Z will be a four-player cooperative action game. The 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.”

World War Z is a name synonymous with heart-pounding fear and action, and we’re excited to finally capture that energy in a fast-paced and gruesome experience crafted specifically for modern consoles and PC,” said Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch in a statement.
