The dead will rise again because Ubisoft has announced they will be bringing ZOMBI
to Xbox One in just a few weeks. Originally a start-up title for the Wii U in 2012, known then as ZOMBIU
, the idea is to allow next-gen gamers the opportunity to experience this innovative horror for themselves and to see if they can survive a zombie-infested, apocalyptic London.
Ubisoft claims the game has been improved upon for newer consoles but will include the same elements that made the title unique to begin with. Each character the player uses will have a bug-out bag which will include all necessary items needed for survival that the player acquires during the game. Should that character die at any point, the player will respawn with a new survivor and need to decide if they are to take a chance and retrieve the bug-out bag from the newly infected character they used last time or continue scavenging for items again. Take a look at the promotional trailer which includes some gameplay and a hauntingly familiar song.
Images and artwork are also being provided; fair warning that some are terrific while others are horrific.
London Bridge is falling down and ZOMBI
is coming up on August 18th for digital download on Xbox One.
