When Ubisoft demonstrated ZombiU at E3 this year, most people wrote it off as a gimmicky little thing meant to entice “Hardcore” gamers to the Wii U. But now it appears that the company is seriously convinced that their tech demo is a legitimate horror game. Alright guys, I’ll bite. Show me what you got.
Color me impressed. I’m still not sure that I’m sold on the Wii U Gamepad as a backpack, but there does seem to be real potential in the slower pace and high stakes that the game is aiming for. Launch titles are usually a little underwhelming, but if this is even half as good as it looks than I will probably be picking it up along with my shiny new Nintendo platform. What do you think?
ZombiU will be out by Christmas this year, exclusively for Wii U.
