There have been rumors of Ubisoft porting the excellent Wii U launch title ZombiU to other platforms for a while, but now it’s official: Zombi (no more u!) arrives digitally on August 18.
Ubisoft dropped a trailer online this morning:
It looks like...ZombiU. That’s not a bad thing, mind you, since ZombiU was not only a terrific showcase for what made the Wii U unique, but it was wonderfully intense zombie game, too. In the Wii U version, inventory management happened on the GamePad, and there was no way to pause the game, so switching items or healing meant you opened yourself to imminent death.
Obviously, these versions won’t have GamePad support, and it’s not clear how Ubisoft has (or hasn’t) modified the game. The trailer is full of busted up zombie heads, but light on details. We won’t have to wait very long to find out the rest, though! I cannot wait to play this game again!
