Unsurprisingly, Ubisofts survival horror game for the Wii U, aptly named ZombiU has been rated M in America and is expected to get a PEGI rating of 18 for Europe sometime later this month.
The content summary for the game also includes details about the gameplay, although most, if not all of the information detailed is already public knowledge.
“In this survival horror game, players assume the role of London inhabitants in the wake of a zombie invasion. From a first-person perspective, players scavenge the city and use realistic firearms, explosives, and melee attacks to kill waves of zombies; battles are highlighted by loud shrieks, impact sounds, and large splashes of blood.
Players can also perform finishing moves to dispatch downed zombies: stomping on/bashing in their heads in with a cricket bat. Attacks often result in decapitated/dismembered bodies, and dead enemies continue to incur damage when shot. The words ‘f**k’ and ‘sh*t’ can be heard in the dialogue.”
If there was ever a reason to buy a Wii U, I’m pretty sure this game is it. It looks like it is going to be one of those rare gems that actually plays like a zombie invasion. Left 4 Dead is good, but its basically just a shooter with an enemy that doesn’t shoot back, ZombiU looks to be a survival game, forcing you to hunt for weapons and challenge you in new ways.
ZombiU releases November 18th for North America and November 30th for Europe.
