Zombi

Ubisoft announced today that Zombi will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 18, 2015. The game was¬†originally released as a launch title for the Wii U back in 2012, but this time around graphics have been optimized for current-gen platforms. It’s worth noting Zombi will only be released as a digital download so don’t go looking for this beast in stores.

The game takes place in London and you’re immediately met by its infected inhabitants. Sure you have some supplies and a creepy guy on the phone telling you where to go, but death is permanent. Each time you die you take control of a different survivor. Unfortunately that also means you lost all your gear. That is of course unless you run across your former character who is now walking around as a zombie. You’ll have to murder that poor bastard to get your supplies back. Good luck with that.

We reviewed ZombiU a couple years ago and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The combat was a bit wonky at times, but Ubisoft made terrific use of the Nintendo GamePad. Let’s also not forget the game is scary as f*ck! I jumped out of my skin on several occasions and the fear of permadeath kept me on my toes.

Watch the trailer and pick up Zombi to get your undead fix whilst you wait for The Walking Dead to return in the Fall.
