Zombie Army 4 Next-Gen Update Arrives This Week On PS5 And Xbox Series X|S

Xbox Series X players also get an exclusive 120fps mode to annihilate Nazi zombies in.


Zombie Army 4: Dead War is adding a free next-gen update this week that'll apply some extra grim detail to all the undead Nazis roaming the cities of Europe. Developer Rebellion detailed the upgrades in a fresh blog post, which will see the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions patched to feature a dynamic 4K resolution and 60fps, while Xbox Series S players can expect a 1080p mode running that also runs at 60fps. Xbox Series X will have the added benefit of 120fps gameplay at 1080p, a feature that'll be absent on PS5.

Originally released on PS4 and Xbox One consoles last year, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions of Zombie Army 4: Dead War were capable of running the game at 60fps in Performance mode, while Quality mode provided a 30fps option with a higher resolution. You can see the full list of how the game will perform on each console below:
