World War Z Tokyo Mission and New Zombie Arrive This Month

By Rebecca Smith, 4 months ago
Co-op shooter World War Z took players by surprise when it was released last month, with many praising its competence in filling the gap left behind by franchises such as Left 4 Dead. At the time of writing, just ten players have managed to complete the game, but if you're still eager for more content, developer Saber Interactive has unveiled a roadmap showing just what players can expect from them over the next three months. Those plans involve a new mission, a new enemy, an extra difficulty setting, and a weekly challenge mode.

May-July 2019 Roadmap

The post-launch content begins later this month with a new mission based in Tokyo, which appears to involve a very expensive-looking cruise ship. At the same time, a new zombie type will appear. This zombie spits a deadly virus towards you and your fellow hunters. You'll need to make sure it's definitely dead, though, because if there's even a slither of health left when you take it down, it will be resurrected.

The content continues in June with the introduction of a new six-skull difficulty. Players who take on this extremely difficult challenge will get a unique reward. In this month, more cosmetics will also arrive. Moving on to July, the developer will add a new Weekly Challenge mode, as well as more cosmetics and "other goodies" that we're assuming include the new weapons and weapon variants.

All of the above content will arrive as free updates, and those updates will also include things not mentioned on the roadmap, such as a wave-based survival mode, private lobbies, and allowing players to switch classes during PvPvZ matches. The content is just the first phase of the developer's plans for the game with more content planned beyond July. As soon as we hear anything else about this content, we'll be sure to let you know.

We've got the full list of World War Z achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
