World War Z GOTY Edition releases on May 5th, and a Switch version is incoming

Saber Interactive has announced that its multiplayer shooter World War Z is going to be getting the game of the year treatment with a new edition being released on May 5th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This World War Z GOTY edition will bring with it a brand new PvE episode set in the French city of Marseille which adds three new missions to tackle. As you may expect this edition of the game will also include all of the content from the season pass, both past and upcoming. The content is listed below:

  • New Episode! 3 new PvE missions in the French city of Marseille with its own maps, story and characters.
  • Weapon Packs! The Lobo Weapon Pack, Biohazard Weapon Pack, Special Operations Forces Weapon Pack, new Last Aid Weapon Pack, plus 1 new upcoming weapon pack.
  • Characters Packs! The Professionals Character Skin Pack and War Heroes Character Skin Pack.

In addition, there is a Switch port of World War Z in the works but very little detail is known about it. There is no release date as of yet, but it will likely have all of the content that has been released for the other versions of the game.

In our review for World War Z Nicole wrote:

It’s safe to say that World War Z doesn’t shy away from its undeniable likeness to Valve’s 10 year old masterpiece. In borrowing many of that game’s ideas, from its AI engine to the uncannily similar special zombies, it’s actually become a spiritual successor that can scratch that Left 4 Dead itch. World War Z might lack in originality, but this isn’t enough to deter from the brainless, fast-paced, cooperative shooter action that you can effortlessly sink hours into and unknowingly get a real soft spot for.
