ZombiU's undead rises again as Zombi on PC, PS4 and Xbox One

MWEB GameZone writes: Since Ubisoft announced Zombi last night a lot more details surfaced.

Five changes from the Wii U version to the PS4, PC & Xbox One, Zombi version. Hélène Henry, Zombi’s producer talks about how they didn't compromise "player tension" with the change in platform."

The story is too old to be commented.

Back on all formats? It's kill or be eaten in zombie games.

Army_of_Darkness1206d ago

A different name for each format would be funny
ZombPC, Zombi4, Zombione.... That's all I got...

I think zombies can take a break again, we'll come back to them in a few years, when we are tired of vampires, dinosaurs and werewolves.

Rimeskeem1206d ago

I need a good dinosaur game in my life

HanCilliers1206d ago

ARK Survival, that is all

NukaCola1206d ago

Horizon Zero Dawn is sort of dino-ish.

ZombieDreddZA1206d ago

Yeah. Getting a little tired of being the punching back of gamers...

Anyone up for some Nazi killing?

who thought calling this port "Zombi" was a good idea ? at least give it a subtitle jeez. also this port looks butt ugly so i can't imagine how the Wii U version looked.

It looks exactly the same, and the name of the original game from the 1980s was Zombi. It's a remake of a very old game of the same name. It was Ubisoft's first ever release.

Awesome game, anyone who likes Resident Evil but didnt like RE 5 and 6 should check this out. Will definitely be playing this again.

And the multiplayer did something really interesting, 1 player plays normally in FPS mode while the other is in like an RTS overview mode spawning zombies to try and take the other player down.

LonDonE1206d ago

Yup and crucially they have added new weapons and animations including new melee weapons.
The big critisism of the wiiu version was lack of more executions, move set, melee weapons.

If the improve these areas and make it 1080p 60fps while beig cheap people might buy it.

Ubisoft isnt adding the multiplayer since this version doesnt feature anything Gamepad like.

"Only one second-screen-dependent feature will not return: ZombiU’s single-system multiplayer, which allowed one player to use the Wii U gamepad to place zombie hordes in the path of an opposing survivor. Rather than attempt to retool it without the touchscreen, Henry says, “we decided to focus on the solo mode, as we believe this is where the ZombiU experience really lay.”

Ubisoft? PC port? Gonna have to check TotalBiscuit's Port report on this one first if he makes one.

LightofDarkness1206d ago

By all indications this has been phoned in, they haven't even touched up the visuals, it just likely renders at 1080p. Don't expect anything more than resolution, vsync and AA options. And expect issues with multi GPU setups.

TwoForce1206d ago

Yeah, Ubisoft never know how to fix PC port. They screw up a lot.

Used to love his videos, was a huge fan actually but he's become so whingy that his voice is just annoying to listen to. There's no need to go all high pitched talk like a girl, we get it you're upset that developers sometimes mess up, but I really wish he'd be more professional about it.
