World War Z Kicks Off Season 2 With “Kill It With Fire” Update
I never got around to reviewing World War Z when it first came out. I played the hell out of it, I just didn’t write the article. I probably shouldn’t admit that, since they were nice enough to send me a review code and everything. For the record, I thought World War Z was pretty good. With some more variety in the zombies, I even thought it could be great. I haven’t kept up with any of the free updates, because I’m bad at my job. But with the new “Kill It With Fire” update, I just might have to go back and give it another look. From the Official Press Release:
Saber Interactive, in partnership with Focus Home Interactive, has released the “Kill It With Fire” update for World War Z, the best-selling, action-packed, co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film.
Kicking off World War Z’s second season of free content, the “Kill It With Fire” update features two challenging new PvE missions: “Dead in the Water,” in which your survivors must execute a new escape plan after being stranded on New York’s Hudson River, and “Resurrection,” which will take your team deep into the dark tunnels below Moscow. The patch also includes a new flamethrower weapon, Halloween trinket, and the ability to prestige rank for special rewards.
Saber has also introduced the World War Z Season Pass — available now on Xbox One, as well as PlayStation®4 in the SIEA region— bundling together all of Season 1 and 2’s current and upcoming premium DLC for one low price at $29.99 (over 50% off the cost of all items purchased separately). The World War Z Season Pass includes:
- The previously released Lobo and Biohazard DLC packs, available now.
- A new set-piece episode and location featuring three PvE missions (expected spring 2020).
- Several new weapon and character packs throughout the coming months.
A version of the Season Pass is coming soon to PlayStation®4 in the SIEE region. New free content additions, including the highly anticipated Horde Mode Z, PvE crossplay support, and a special zombie type, are also expected to arrive later this year.
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z challenges players with hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies at a time, able to move and strike as one collective herd, as well as break off as individual attackers. 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.
World War Z is out now digitally and at major retailers on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, plus Windows PC via the Epic Games Store. For more information, visit http://wwzgame.com, and follow the game on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WWZGame, Twitter @WWZTheGame, and Instagram @WWZGame.
