World War Z tie-in on the way
iOS and Android game to launch May 30 ahead of upcoming Brad Pitt movie of the same name.
Upcoming Brad Pitt zombie movie World War Z will be accompanied by a game tie-in, Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced.
The World War Z game will be available on iOS and Android devices on May 30, ahead of the film's worldwide release on June 21. The movie focuses on ex-United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who travels the world to stop a zombie outbreak.
The game, developed by Chicago-based Phosphor Games Studio, appears to follow a similar track. Its debut trailer (below) shows that players will battle zombies in a variety of scenarios. In one scene, the player uses a crowbar to attack enemies and in another, wields an automatic weapon attached to a helicopter.
The latest game from Paramount Digital Entertainment was a Star Trek: Into Darkness tie-in called Star Trek The Video Game. GameSpot's review of the title found little to enjoy, outside of the voice acting from the film's cast like Chris Pine (Captain Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock).
