During the PC Gaming Show today, Sniper Elite vets Rebellion announced the latest game in the Zombie Army franchise with Zombie Army 4: Dead War. This was the third new game Rebllion was bringing to E3 this year, alongside Sniper Elite VR and Evil Genius 2.
The game was, unfortunately, leaked ahead of the show thanks to an Amazon listing. However, that hasn't stopped the hypetrain from picking this one up and running with it. Which we can't totally blame them for.
Further details on the game came from PC Gamer:
Rebellion's trailer for Zombie Army 4: Dead War makes it look like Sniper Elite, but co-op, and with three non-sniper classes. And there are zombies, obviously, which makes it a little different, but they are still Nazis.
The campaign will feature 4-player drop-in, drop-out co-op, and will span Italy and "beyond"—a zombie zoo is one of the locations promised. There are unlockable skills, attacks, and upgrades ("Harness divine devastation! Stun hordes into shock with electricity!") as well as traps and the return of the Sniper Elite series' X-ray cam.
For all the zombie slaughtering in it, the trailer above feels oddly subdued. I find the squad's too-casual shouts to each other reassuring. Zombie Hitler's horde has overrun Europe, sure, but everything'll be fine, probably.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War will release in early 2020 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
