Great, not many games have fast zombies. I think Days Gone does but it got delayed

there are more games with fast zombies than slow zombies.

Godmars290125d ago

Why aren't there more games that take after FTL. That's what I want to know.

KyRo125d ago

To many games have fast zombies. Give me a lot of slow zombies in confined place with barely enough ammo to scrape through.

Meh, 28 Days Later is easily my favorite Zombie flick. Also zombies are fictional, there’s room for creativity

Godmars290125d ago (Edited 125d ago )

Zombies shouldn't be able to run. Given that "traditional" zombies come of voodoo and rigamortis which does damage to nerves and muscles. It could be argued that since the modern zombie infection effects a body immediately upon death its more responsive as a result, but then chest wounds should be as much if not more effective in putting them down. Given how loss of blood effects a body.

you think? Days Gone was the first announced.....I think you KNEW that already tho ;)

Days Gone will actually have some variety to their zombies (freakers) but generally they are fast moving and intelligent. Days Gone appears to have great horde tech but the game looks to be so much more. It seems to feature a deep narrative and lush open world as opposed to a Left 4 Dead experience. I'm happy that Sony chose to delay it rather than rush it out. 2018 is already packed with quality games on PS4 so the delay is tolerable. SotC, Ni No Kuni 2, God of war, Yakuza 6, MLB 18, Detroit, and possibly Spiderman to name a few.

They're not normal zombie material. They actually are living and procreate. It's more like an evolved version of humans than living dead. They fit in the genre, but not a good straight comparison.

the real question is, they will actually deliver this experience or will be hype and then a downgraded game with half of the features?

InKnight7s125d ago

every game hyped and promised to deliver unique experience and alooot of fantastic stuff release with quarter contents such as FFXIII, FFXV and Watch Dogs.

I foresee massive frame drops

“To me, the real fun with swarms is the online co-op experience – World War Z is the only game to offer an online experience with such massive quantities of fastmoving enemies.”

Shots fired! They seem to be going after State of Decay 2 with this game with a comment like that. If they hold up to their promises, this could steal SoD 2’s thunder.

State of Decay 2 at last years E3 had gameplay.

You sound ridiculous trying to act like world war z can even do anything to state of decay a game with a release in 2 months.

You said "steal thunder" and have yet to give any reasoning how.

Its nuts.

Alright. So how would this compete with Days Gone, in your eyes? The multiplayer aspect will attract a much larger audience, so surely Days Gone should be somewhat worried?

State of Decay 2 will sell the majority of its copies in the first few months, as with most games. So on that front, WWZ shouldn't beat it up too badly. Due to the release dates and style of zombies, I would say Days Gone has more to worry about.

But even then... No, neither will probably be affected that much. I doubt any shots were intended to be fired.

Cyborgg125d ago

Agreed I think this game will be better than State of Decay 2

sampsonon125d ago

i think they are talking about Days Gone seeing as it's only a single player game. Days gone will be the better game no doubt, but i am looking forward to trying this one as well.
