It looks like Ubisoft's ZombiU will be releasing on next-gen consoles.
Well that was unexpected. Been wanting to play this game ages, but don't know anyone who has a Wii U
It's a good game, might have benefited from being a bit longer though. Definitely worth a play though if you have (or plan on getting) a WiiU and can get it on the cheap, which by now you should be able to.
What...... Who else deosnt really have an interest in this besides me? PS4 is getting H1Z1 (im already playing on PC) and Xbox One and pc has Day Z... and then you got the dead island series, and possible a L4D sequel. Overkills TWD, Telltale TWD.... Resident evil.. Just wondering if anyone else feels the same way
@Subtenko if you are interested in zombie games why would you not be interested in a good one you haven't played?
What will they call it now?? Zombie4 and ZombieOne lol
i wonder if they will be using supportive devices to create that gamepad gameplay?
Doubt it on PS4 you have touch pad and speaker on controller or Vita or tablet support and X1 has Kinect. This game won't suffer too much from making the jump.
The game will be severely downgraded without the gamepad support.
The game is actually a downgrade from games like Dying Light.
The game was downgraded by being on the Wii U....It was good, but would have benefited from better hardware, and not relying on a gimmick like the gamepad... BTW a PS4 controller would work just fine as a substitute as it has a touchpad and a speaker, so there's your backpack and listening to the prepper guy.... The gamepad sincerely is a stupid gimmick, at no point in a game should you ever have to take your eyes off the screen to look at another screen...The only really great feature it has is being able to play some games on it
@deadpolio obviously you've never played it if your going to make a comment like that. The gamepas mase the experience. Without it the game would have just been resident evil
Exactly. It'll still be a good game but what really made it shine was the game pad. I still can't wrap my mind around random Internet comments saying the gamepad is a gimmick, most likely by people who have never even held one in their hands. What part about extra features is a gimmick? It's okay for the PS4 to have Gyro controls, accelerometers, touchpad, but I controller that actually has something useful like a second screen... That's a gimmick. Wow
@deadpolio: hmm I cannot agree. I think you should never be forced to push the map/inventory button every 5 seconds (often with a 1-2 sec loading time) that takes you out of the experience. I would love to play the witcher 3 with the wii u gamepad for example. It's made for open world titles, sadly the wii u hardware could not handle the witcher 3 :p
I enjoyed the game but I also dint think this game would be as enjoyable without the wiiu game pad. Be interesting to see how its done one the ps4 and Xbox one. If anything they should of just made a 2nd game rather than try and put it on the Xbox one and ps4. I also think they should of done a 2nd for the wiiu too as it did not sell that bad on the wiki when you work out the install base the wiiu had when it came out.
another day and one less reason to own a wiiu but in all honesty, the game will be redundant on other systems that have the likes of resident evil anyway. why would anyone want this game now?
The ambulance is coming! Wii U! Wii U! Wii U!
Nintendo knows, that's why the NX is coming. Depending on how that goes, Nintendo could end up going the way of Sega in the future.
You guys can't seriously be that ignorant can you? I still see about a dozen games on the way, every last one of them another reason to own a Wii U. I really thought people who enjoy playing video games would be more interested in seeking out fun experiences they're missing.
Was a GREAT start to the WiiU. They def needed more like that but kind of Nintendoed it once again. smh
Lol was talking about this game the other day and how i expected it to land on other consoles.. a tad bit late but waddaya know lol
Yeah, but kinda reminds me of back then on the wii some of the wii exclusive games ended on playstation.
Just don't see how it will work without the Gamepad.
I agree. It is pretty cool with the gamepad.
Not really for me. Kinda seen this one coming
Yeah this is 1 game I would have bought if I had a WiiU. I heard (and seen on the internet) a lot of great things said. Cant wait to finally play it.
sorta yes and no. They stated that they would likely port it but that was years ago. I was expecting it years prior, unexpected to see it now though. But they need to seek a return, I don't blame them.
Wonder if they are going to use the same name ZombiU or take out the "U" would be funny if they change it
This game is actually pretty good, its a pity I never picked up an WiiU for it. Day one purchase for me.
850 degrees? Are people really THAT interested in this game? I mean it's a great game and all don't get me wrong, I bought it on launch day and loved it, but 850 degrees?
Given the lack of Left 4 Dead 3, I'd say this one will go down a nice treat.
Killing floor 2 is coming
Agreed, i still dont understand why Microsoft hasn't gone to valve and slapped down some cash and demanded to make left 4 dead 3 for the Xbox one as console exclusive just like the previous games? Hell to this day left 4 dead 1 and 2 are the best co op game I have played! Spent countless hours on my 360 and then my wife got addicted to it and ended up red ringing a few 360s due to playing the first two games so much! Lol Now I just play it on steam but I will love it if Ms adds the first two games on Xbox one within the backwards compatible list. Then again my wife will end up hijacking my X1, still would love to see the first 2 games playable on X1 and a sequel brought to all platforms! I have allot of good friends on Psn so would love to play it with them on my ps4. On topic this is a surprise, played the first on my wiiu but to be honest didn't like it too much, the wiiu controllers have allot of dead zone so fps games don't feel to good, I did get used to it eventually but jumping between my Consoles highlighted how bad they are! I don't see how they will include all the motion stuff? Maybe use Kinnect? And doesn't the ps4 controller have accelerometer and gyro controls like the PS3 controller? So technically on ps4 with the touch pad it should be ok? Time will tell.
you never know msft may have left 4 dead 3 deal just we dont know as valves and there partnership is only going to get better...
@LonDonE You forget, Valve doesn't know how to count to 3 :p
They couldn't be more different outside shooting zombies.
@LonDonE- " i still dont understand why Microsoft hasn't gone to valve and slapped down some cash and demanded to make left 4 dead 3 for the Xbox one" Valve hasn't done one with them in a long time as CSGO and Portal 2 released on all 3 systems. I'm not even sure that had to do with MS as Valve stated at the time they didn't have a PS3 team and even had one of EA's teams port The Orange Box on the PS3 as that led to a pretty big controversy at the time regarding who is to blame with such a thing, the publisher for having a junk port team, or the original developer for not having someone who knew the tech, or Sony for not sending out someone to assist them or for not making a more tech friendly system. A little OT, but Valve since then has been more open to working on Sony products, even having certain features on PS3 that where not on 360 based on MS closed network. (I'm sure Sony likely sent someone out to Valve to patch things up) Since Gabe went to that Sony E3, they haven't really been against one system or the other. MS doesn't really have the same leverage to even pull a timed game as on both ends the deal is likely costly. Valve gets less money years down the line if they wish to do a sequel due to the fractured install base on PS4, they also would be asking for more money as the PS4 install base is almost double that of the XONE's. MS spending money on likely a timed game doesn't make as much sense now as spending it in house. They would have to spend MORE to have it then last gen and it would likely only be for the terms of timed. Its likely not worth the cost to MS at the moment. If we see L4D3, it will likely be on all 3 systems.
never on n4g have i read a comment that mirrored so perfectly how i feel.
Great! I still play it on Wii U, but I'd love to earn trophies on it.
Trophies are overrated. Never understood why games have them.
A few reasons from someone who is not addicted to them, but really likes it: 1. Memories. Later you can check you trophy history and played games (and its completion). It has a great use for people, like me, whose memory sucks. 2. Replay value. Some trophies give directions to play the game again, for different objectives. It helps to make multiple playthroughs not boring/repetitive. Dishonored, for instance: if you want all trophies, you'll have to play it without being detected, without killing anyone (or letting anyone unconscious die, like eaten by rats) and also raising a lot of chaos, killing lots of people. 3. Ideas for gameplay. Take a trophy for "explore all locations" or, like The Binding of Isaac's (or any roguelite) "get all items". Or kill X enemies in certain way. It gives variation for a game. Again, ideas that you might want or not to follow. Surely, it all can be done without the trophy rewards, but, In the end, they act like checklists, incentives to play the game in ways maybe you wouldn't.
And also trophies are a clear case of gamification, because yo dawg, they heard we like games...
In the early days of achievements/ tropies, I could see your point. But now most game developers have a good grasp on them and it helps you to do more in a game than you normally would. For instance, I just checked the achievement list for The Witcher 3 and did not know I could do some things apparently. Sure you could just play through a game and be done with it, or you could try to get all the achievements. A lot of times they add to the game with various different ways to play.
Trophies are the best thing that came out of last gen
Wonder what the name will be surely not Zombie U??? There going with simply zombi really?!
It says in the article... Zombi
Thay can't call it Zombi, Zombi make cool music https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I acknowledged that if you read my entire comment it's just dumb like let's be creative
Zombi definitive edition most prob lol
I wasn't expecting that.
One of my favorite zombie games, this is great news!
This is a GREAT news. I bought it with my Wii U because it was insanely cheap but it ended up being one of my favorite titles on the system. It's a great game, with a lot of original ideas. A true survival horror that every fan of zombies should try! Can't wait for a sequel for next gen consoles! :)
Also an accurate representation of life in London ;)
@omeganex9999. Zombiu 2, now with Morpheus...
That would be epic! :) I hope in some coop mode as well!
Wow, i don't think anyone was expecting that, i did play this when it first come out it wasn't the best but at least more people get to try out it now.
if you thought killzone 2 had input lag then just wait until you play zombieU...
KZ doesn't have input lag, that's the gameplay style. It adds weight to your character and weapon and works splendidly!
Even if it does have input lag (which I didn't notice, but the controls did feel "heavy") expect any and all issues to be refined in the next gen rel - hang on, it's Ubisoft. Ignore me.
Killzone 2 > Killzone SF, Killzone 3, Killzone, Killzone Ilberation. The gameplay in Killzone 2 was incredible, felt as gritty as the Helghan.
ZombieU did have annoying horrible input lag it was the first thing that overwhelmed me when playing it. I couldn't get over how awkward it felt to turn to a different direction.
Might as well, it soon will be lights out for the Wiiu
What are the disagrees for? The Wiiu is about to be put out to pasture, and depending on your gaming tastes, it has been dieing for some time. Devs really never got on board it has little shelf space in retail stores. It has poor sales month after month. Reality needs to set in for Nintendo fans, and given what we just saw at E3 from Nintendo, I think it is good to remaster, this game on the PS4One as they should be able to improve the game. Notveven Nintendo much in the pipeline for the cobsole. My daughter has the game on her Wiiu but the tablet controller turned me off. I may get to play the game now that it is coming to the new consoles.
Damn it, I was aiming for agree but my "smart" phone failed epically.
I kept seeing this on "Top 10 most underated video-games" lists, interesting.
will be entering interesting to see how this performs
Bayonetta 2 is next lol. /s
