  • World War Z Boasts Over 1 Million Units Sold Across All Platforms

    World War Z

    In its first week of launch, Saber Interactive's World War Z has sold over 1 million units. This sales milestone is cumulative across all of its available platforms, which currently include PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. Curiously, there are no solid figures that break down exactly how many units per platform were sold. However, Saber Interactive does seem to praise the "tremendous support of the Epic Games Store."

    As we have talked about numerous times, World War Z is a co-op focused, third-person shooter in the same vein as Left 4 Dead. You and three buddies team up to take on levels full of the living dead. I was able to try it out for a few minutes the other day and the sequences where they throw a ton of zombies at you all at once are actually quite neat. They come at you almost as if they're a liquid, climbing and stacking over each other to get up walls. The screenshot at the top of this news post is actually from my brief play session. I had to capture the image via the Nvidia overlay because the Epic Games Launcher doesn't include that feature. I don't know why I decided to include this little nugget of information.

    “We are humbled and thrilled by the immense success so far of World War Z, especially on PC thanks to the tremendous support of the Epic Games Store,” said Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch. “Moving forward, we’ll continue to expand the game and its community with new improvements, stability updates and bonus gameplay content, beginning very soon with a special new mission for the Tokyo episode.”

    Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies – able to move and strike as one collective herd as well as break off into individual attackers – at a time on players. Choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, including New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.
