Zombie decimation simulator World War Z (largely based on the movie very loosely based on the book) has garnered a dedicated following since its release in 2019 for all major systems except Nintendo Switch. But that's changing as the Switch port finally emerges from obscurity.
Developer Saber Interactive, which has worked on many other ports including the Switch version of The Witcher 3, has revealed that World War Z will lock down on Nintendo's platform from November 2.
The game will be available both physically and digitally for $39,99, with a Deluxe Edition for $49,99. This version will also come with a pack of weapons and skins. The base game will occupy 6,7 GB.
Despite the Switch's hardware limitations, compared to other platforms the game can be played on, the reveal trailer seen below is certainly impressive. Even if the gameplay parts are hidden in a Switch cutout.
For anyone who missed World War Z when it launched, it's a cooperative shooter based on the World War Z movie (technically not the World War Z book). Players use firearms, explosives, and any other means necessary to tear apart and blast hordes of zombies either solo or with three other compatriots.
As with most multiplayer games at this point, competitive modes are also available, with World War Z's PvPvZ modes pitting players against each other and the undead.
However, that's not all the franchise's zombie-slaying action this fall. World War Z: Aftermath introduces new locations, new weapons, first person mode and more. It will launch on September 21, but not on Switch.
