The Zombie Horde Returns In World War Z: Aftermath, Out Today
Take the fight to the streets of Rome with the new Vanguard class.
The war against zombies continues -- as if it would ever stop -- with today's release of World War Z: Aftermath from Saber Interactive. The standalone game sells for $39.99 and includes all content and campaigns from the original World War Z game. If you already own that, you can upgrade to Aftermath for just $19.99. The Deluxe Edition adds two melee weapons and the ornate Explorer Weapon Skins Pack and sells for $49.99.
Aftermath will send players through two new story campaigns, located in Rome (including Vatican City) and Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. Gameplay changes this time around include a new melee system with two-handed and dual-wielded weapons, and a new class, the Vanguard, with its electrified shield that "plows through hordes with devastating efficiency."
World War Z: Aftermath can be played in parties up to four, supporting full cross-play between PC and consoles. You can pick it up now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or on PC via Steam or the Epic Games Store. It also offers backwards compatibility for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at 4K and 60 FPS; a full launch on next-gen consoles is planned for 2022, and will include Horde Mode XL and other improvements. Meanwhile, if you're a Nintendo Switch player, you can look forward to getting the base game on November 2.
