In this developer diary for ZombiU, story design director Gabrielle Shrager and co-writer Antony Johnston go into detail about the story and setting behind the game.
I'll get this game if you get to bludgeon a zombified Prince Harry. Also, will Kate Middleton be topless in it?
When I see such games on the horizon I barely accept the fact that it is certain platform exclusive. Moreover, zombie games are my favorite games.
Its quite refreshing that this isn't
A) An on-rails shooter or
B) Not another mindless Zombie killing game (open world or not).
Is it only for the Wii? Too bad it's not coming out on a real game system (ie, any other console or the PC).
@EvilShabazz I have a stupidly high end OC'd Crossfire rig so i suppose i could say that its a shame last days and zombiu and halo 4 are not coming out on a real console due to the fact my pc cake walks them yes i have both consoles and a wii U on pre order. my ps3 started gathering dust when i upgraded my PC with a bluray player and both 360 and ps3 come out for exclusives only. Wii U im looking forward to due to the Gameplay aspect the controller brings a new aspect to gaming, and the game is looking to be akin to dark souls which is hard as hell and fun.
i like graphics as much as the next but the gameplay is key BF3 looks great on my pc bores the hell outta me, COD looks great for the 4 hours it took to get through story, ARMA 2 is one of the few really high end graphical games i can say ive stuck with. I also enjoyed l4d2 which i personally thought looked horrible but was great fun with mates.
graphics should always come after gameplay far tomany games come out with great visuals and horrid gameplay im looking at you Resi 6!!!
@EvilShabazz 1st) is on the WiiU 2) Wii is a real game system not just a graphic system like the other two.
I think people compare this to redsteel in the sense that redsteel was a radical new way to play a first person shooter. You could turn the gun, aim it, sword fight. This game uses the tablet in much the same fasion as redsteel used the wii controller. interaction. But This game is a slow paced zombie survival game were as redsteel was a gun ho shootem up game. And this looks like it is going to be one of the best zombie games out there. I mean left 4 dead was fun as hell, and res1 and 2 were amazing games. But cod zombies, res 4-6, left 4 dead 2.... all left me feeling like its not scary enough, just a shootem up, or not complexing enough for me to like them as much.
So excited for this one. I laugh at people who are comparing this to red steel. They obviously didn't do their homework when comparing the 2 - its night and day. i also feel like there is a lot of stuff about this game that we have yet to hear about so stay tuned and keep this one on your radar. I do sincerely hope this turns out to be stellar cause I need a nice balance to nsmbu.
Looking good, won't be picking up WiiU day one but maybe in the new year. This will be on the list for sure.
@zackcurl Another Zombie game? The platinum zombie game Resident Evil is more of an action game than anything else these days, so I'd say yes.
@zackcurl Yes we do, because we need to milk this genre for every cent its worth until people finally get sick and tired of it!
@zackcurl yes we do :) but a good one , im tired of the zombie killing games we need a good zombie survival :)
@zackcurl If it's good, then yes
@zackcurl Seems like a fairly genuine attempt at something solid.
