ZombiU Servers Mysteriously Begin Working Again

Almost half a year ago, ZombiU players noticed that the online features within int he game had been turned off by Ubisoft. All of a sudden, the leaderboards, graffiti, and other online features no longer worked. Ubisoft gave no explanation for this unexpected shut-down.

At least Ubisoft hasn't totally forgotten about this game. It's a shame it didn't do better at retail, despite some rough edges it's a pretty decent game.

As far as I know, Zombi U sold around 500,000 copies, and that was back then when the Wii U had sold only about 4 million consoles. That was actually a pretty damn good attach rate. Actually, it STILL has a good attach rate at 5%.

I honestly don't know what Ubisoft was expecting, sales-wise. It sold pretty damn well for a B-game released on launch for a console with a low install base.

I agree! It had to have sold well enough by now, especially when considering that they barely promoted it and it was a low budget title.

The title says the criteria was explicitly written to mention Eternal Darkness. I am happy to see House of the Dead: OVERKILL on here. With the rise of Grindhouse themes in the 2010s, (ie WET), this was one that was both entertaining and camp funny.

Would be nice to see a new Zombie game set in the UK again, some of the landmarks, old architecture and the like really fits in well with the genre.
