Ubisoft has officially announced Zombi, a PS4, Xbox One and PC port of 2012 Wii U horror ZombiU due to arrive digitally on August 18.
Yup, I know it. ZombiU didn't saved Wii U. That's why it need boost the sales.
It was a Wii U launch title. It was never expected to save the Wii U, as the Wii U didn't need saving at that point.
that seems awfully short notice. i expect an awful port.
you took the words right out my mouth... They really needed to not just port it but make it better, but I guess since the game was not profitable, that is not going to happen... This will just be a port... I'll keep my fingers cross and hope they at least did the port well..
I have a feeling they could possibly not profit from this, if most people are like me and dont care about the title.... Next time just think about multiplat or port earlier...
There were rumors of this a long time ago so not necessarily a rushed port. If you haven't played it, its pretty good. My wonder is that it was designed with the wiiu pad in mind... How can they eliminate it... Will it still have that same feeling without it?
that's what the world needs another zombie slasher (although not entirely new but still) on the other hand does look very pretty and so long as its no more than £20 im happy :)
Well you already know there is NO chance in hell it will be 20 anything....It will probably be 60 considering they are still trying to make some money on it, best case scenario it will be 40
well resident evil hd only cost 15 ( or 35 as im assuming your in the states) so ya never know, it zombiu might be a bargain
Forza 6 £49.99 Fifa 16 £54.99 Halo 5 £44.99 Cod BO3 £54.99 Fallout 4 £54.99 and so on. Now who in their right mind would pay £60.00 for Zombi? I think 40 max (personally i'd like £30.00) if they want to sell any copys.
Lol, he was talking in dollars, not pounds. Im guessing.
Now that Zombie game fad is kinda over I want a dinosaur game now....a real one....not robot dinosaurs like Horizon Zero Dawn
If you have a PC ARK: Survival Evolved might be your game, or you can wait for it to release on PS4 and Xbox One later.
Sounds booring too....but a ZOMBIE DINOSAUR would be something totally fresh...
Dem console prices for games are expensive lol
Something something about discouraging piracy by not gouging PC gamers as well. I'm not sure if this is true but what else could it be?
"Another"? This is a port of a game from like, 3 years ago.
you think this looks pretty? its last gen level graphics if you ask me.
Honestly the Wii U has great looking games but this isn't one of them. Mario Kart, Wind Waker HD, and Super Mario 3D World really show how Nintendo has mastered a cartoonish art direction to the point where everything looks flawless and pixels/jaggies are basically impossible to find.
The game is based in London, but I see a lack of diversity in the ethnicity of the zombies.
And how is my question racist? Please explain.
I agree totally but seeing as though im up north im allowed to bad mouth cockneys (nay all southerners) :)
Assuming you are saying the game is RACIST not SaveFerris
Zombiestation & zombieone confirmed
People disagreeing with you don't see the fun in your remark! :)
Best version of the song "london bridges" I've ever heard.. game looks pretty cool also.
Give it a go, I have really enjoyed ZombiU myself :)
its not a bad game but I don't see it being as fun on the Xbox one or ps4 as for me it was he game pad that made this game stand out on the wiiu. On the flip side if this means they are testing the water for a zombie 2 then ide like to see that but if its an Xbox one and ps4 game only I want to see they do something different to the other hack and slash games like they did on the wiiu.
I really liked the game on Wii U. I hope the visuals for these versions will be a decent enough improvement over its original incarnation
You notice in the trailer they had weapons that weren't in the wiiU version?
I haven't played the game since way back in 2012 so my memory of specifics is pretty hazy
It best be a budget title; the game was pretty short and without the gamepad novelty the gameplay probably won't hold up too well.
I was thinking the same thing, surely it will be garbage without the Wii U controller.
Digital only and the same Wii U graphics. I've been interested in this game since the Wii U version was announced. I'll probably get it if it's like 20 dollars on the PlayStation Store.
Interesting thing about this teaser trailer is that it features a nailbat and an axe... the wiiU versions got railed for only having one melee weapon that you had to use the whole game (cricket bat.) This is worth a play for those who never tried it. It's one of the best/most tense horror experiences I've ever had. It's an FPS darksouls of the zombie genre. Try it.
good eye! just rewatched it to see what you pointed out. hopefully they add in a lot of other things too as i dont know if ill buy it again without extra content. but if there is enough extra then id love to give this game another play through on my ps4 :)
Yep agree man. If there's extra goodies and improved textures and stuff I may jump in again as well.
im getting this game for my wii u only thank you its like 10-15$ new
Wow, PC too? Maybe this can hold me off until Mad Max and MGS :) Oh wait, it's an Ubisoft title.. Probably won't be in a playable state until mid 2016..
Cause that doesn't sound at all drama queen-ish at all...Ubisoft released ONE game that was broken ONE...Lets not try to pretend that every game they release is broken, lets keep it in REALITY
Splinter Cell Conviction = runs like crap Assassin's Creed 4 = crap CPU optimization Assassin's Creed 3 = crap CPU optimization Far Cry 3 = crap CPU optimization, took 5 patches to fix all crashes and performance issues + mouse acceleration Far Cry 4 = crap CPU optimization, took 6 patches to improve CPU performance but not fix stutter and mouse acceleration, post patch 6 CPU optimization even worse than before, but fixed stutter somewhat and mouse problems, currently at version 1.9 (or was it 1.10?) AC Unity = very demanding on the CPU and GPU, looks pretty but ran absolutely horrible until v1.4 and a lot of driver fixes on both sides. Doesn't look as good as FC4, though. Still stutters sometimes. Ghost Recon Future Soldier - the more patches it got, the worse it ran. Pretty demanding at v1.0, even worse later on. Frankly, the only games I've not had an issue with are the 2D Raymans and SC: Blacklist. Their games are amazing and fun, it's a shame they just don't seem to put enough effort into their PC ports. If Ghost Recon Wildlands has any issues on PC, my heart would break.
All-caps text is drama queen-ish..
@RedDeadLB How is FC4 is better looking than Unity? FC4 is basicly old gen FC3 with a few new lightning effects while Unity is a full fledged current gen title with it's animations and physics.
@dreamoner AC Unity had some pretty bad textures, horrible draw distance due to API limitations, popup etc. Far Cry 4 has prettier textures, ambiance, effects. Both use physical based rendering, which is amazing which means those two are the best looking games to date honestly. Far Cry 4 is just a little bit more rounded in my opinion. Graphics are subjective, for I find L4D2 more aesthetically and stylistically pleasing than Crysis 3, so you may not agree.
Haha ubi, joke on us cause we like your games,you just dont like us playing them on pc.
Any word on how the gamepad integration is dealt with?
Yeah...Its GONE.....It doesn't need it, the feature made the already mediocre game worse and neither system has a gamepad...They aren't going to add some crap smartphone for the pad app crap because they have to assume that not everyone is going to have a smartphone....So expect normal menus....Not that the pad was of ANY use because you could use the thumbstick to scan anyway
Well, I mean that was kind of the point wasn't it? Without it you just have an okay game about zombies with sort-of permadeath. If people buy it this way then sure, more power to them. But I think people were more lenient with the game upon release because they appreciated what it was trying to do, rather than it being a good zombie survival game. Could be wrong though
Tbh, I played the campaign for about 20 mins, got bored and never touched it again. The multiplayer king of zombies mode is Hella fun though, and is pretty unique as I can't think of any other games with a similar mode, especially on one console.
I like control "OPTIONS".
Well it was only a matter of time before it happened with the horrible sales it had on Wii U Im not surprised by this.
I wonder if it will sell more on PS4 + X1. It sold around 870,000 on Wii U as a launch title. Probably would need a budget price to get close to that 3 years later
Thats what I was wondering but I figure they are just looking for any kind of more money.
Graphically speaking, this pales in comparison to other games out on the market (such as Dying Light.) Not to throw rocks at a game but, with so many darn zombie games out, I just have to get picky.
People should not dismiss this one before trying it, its one of the best survival games out there. I can't help but think that this game is the direction that Resident Evil should have gone instead of how it went with 5, I liked 5 but it didn't feel like a RE game at all in terms of atmosphere. A good description would be RE4 set in London with updated controls and some great, creepy locations.
One of if not the best use of the gamepad games on Wii U. Unfortunately the problem with it though was that it had low production values and was repetitive as hell. If UBIsoft would have delayed the game for a year and touched it up and added more gameplay variety ... it could have been something truly special and really have sold the gamepad as a truly useful peripheral to enhance gaming. Now it seems to look better (though not amazing) and I noticed a couple new weapons ... but no gamepad might make its gameplay super generic. Could be wrong but UBIsoft blew its chance to have a big and original franchise by rushing it in the first place I think.
If the price is right, Im going to check it out.
Hehehahahahahahahahahaha I remember a couple years back I called it that ZombiU would be ported to Ps4, X1 and renamed Zombi but some dipshit insulted be and said it would never happen. Now vindication comes at last
Hell yes! Only game I really wanted to play on the Wii U. Sign me up!
YAY! I really wanted to play a mediocre zombie game, thanks ubisoft!
It's looks so generic though.
Looks pretty good. I never played ZombieU so I figure I might check it out soon.
Yeah, I'll pass
It's going to be hard to play any other zombie game that doesn't have the same elements and gameplay of Dying Light.
Yeah I'd be running up to ledges and trying ridiculous jumps all the time. Would love Dying Light's gameplay but set in a location like this.
Tried to get into this game but just couldn't... A pass for me
I'll give it a shot.
