Though we still don't have a release date, Saber Interactive did just release a brand new trailer for their highly anticipated World War Z showing off the zombie game's "PvPvZ" mode and if the above video is anything to go by, it's going to be intense.
The studio even broke down what makes this particular mode so special, "What separates PvPvE in World War Z from other multiplayer games is the zombie swarm, which storms the arena throughout the match, forcing players to battle both each other and the undead and allowing the tide of the fight to turn in an instant. World War Z will launch with the following multiplayer modes":
- Scavenge Raid: players race to secure resources across the map to win
- Vaccine Hunt: players must pick up and hold an object to earn point for the team
- Swarm Deathmatch: Two teams go head to head in a bitter fight to the end
- Swarm Domination: Capture zones to earn points and win a team victory
- King of the Hill: Capture a single hill, then control it to earn victory points
The base game itself offers up to 4-player co-op and from the looks of the latest trailer, the PvPvZ mode looks like it will be stupidly fun as well! For those that were fans of the World War Z movie, the upcoming zombie title seems to reflect the original source material from both the book and the film perfectly.
