After weeks (months?) of speculation, we finally get actual confirmation today that ZombiU is now coming out as Zombi for the PS4, XB1, and PC next month as a digital download only on August 18, 2015. Now all we need is a price point, Ubi (fingers crossed it’s no more than $20)!!
I’m not saying this game is a masterpiece. I’m not insinuating it set the world on fire when it launched with the Wii U. I will say that I was not upset with my purchase of this game and the experience I had with it on that console. I enjoyed it. Was it rough around the edges? Sure it was. Was it graphically impressive? Not at all, but it wasn’t a bad-looking game, either. It looked good for the time it released and for the hardware it was released for. Am I excited to play it on a console I prefer today with hopes that they streamlined it without the GamePad functionality to make it just as fun? Absolutely. I like the game and I like that they wanted a “Souls-type” game vibe in a zombie apocalypse setting, even if that style of game isn’t necessarily my cuppa tea, guvnah.
Here’s a bunch of more info on the release from Ubi’s blog that got me more excited for this. (Ubiblog Zombi Info)
If you’re not into reading all that much, take a gander at the trailer below and hopefully you’ll get at least a little hyped for the game. London’s calling. Will you heed her call?
