Nature's Zombie Apocalypse Online Multiplayer Trailer

By Lucy Wood,
If you were an animal in a zombie apocalypse would you be a gun-toting gorilla or a sloth with a sword? Upcoming twin-stick shooter Nature's Zombie Apocalypse is the perfect opportunity to unleash your animal instincts. As this new trailer shows you can also get together online with up to eight friends to increase your zombie-slaying pleasure.

Nature's Zombie Apocalypse has been available on Steam Early Access since July 2015 with local co-op for up to eight players, and this trailer marks the introduction of online multiplayer to that version. As such, we can expect to see online co-op included when the game comes to Xbox One later in the year.

Nature's Zombie Apocalypse is set in London, where all the humans have croaked in a zombie plague. Rather than go the way of the dodo the animals have taken up arms and engaged in a brutal dogfight with the zombie horde. Each playable animal has a unique rage move - such as the duck's tornado or elephant's charge - to help them send the zombies to the great zoo in the sky. Smaller animals such as suicidal snails and firing flamingoes can also be placed strategically as defences.

Nature's Zombie Apocalypse has a cast of enemies that includes crazy clowns and deranged dinner ladies, with a range of nasty tricks such as toxic vomiting and even turning their heads into bombs then throwing them at you. Game modes include rescuing kittens, protecting penguins and Egg Guardian. Blood can be turned off and replaced with confetti for those wanting a more family friendly experience.

Nature's Zombie Apocalypse is expected to release on Xbox One later this year.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Nature's Zombie Apocalypse achievements.
