It’s been rumoured and leaked a number of times over the last few months, but Ubisoft’s ZombiU has finally been confirmed for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and being rebranded quite simply as Zombi in the process. Not only that, but it’s shuffling towards its digital only release on August 18th.
One of the flagship launch titles for the Wii U, ZombiU dropped players into a zombie-infested rendition of London, trying to get as far as they possibly could through the city and with persistence from one life to the next in being able to find and collect all the kit a previous character had within the world. It was easily one of the more innovative and well received games on the console, but didn’t sell well enough to warrant a sequel.
So it’s great to see it revived for other platforms, but ZombiU was designed with the unique dual screen capabilities of the Wii U in mind, for real time inventory management, interacting with world items and so forth. It will be fascinating to see how those are translated to platforms without a second screen to make use of.
