World War Z Aftermath is a significant upgrade being launched by developers Saber Interactive, which changes the game in big ways across PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms.
And the good news for fans of the base game is that the World War Z Aftermath release date has been scheduled for this week, with early access on offer.
So if you’re dying to find out what has changed on PS4, Xbox One, PC and next-gen consoles, you don’t have to wait long.
Expanding on the base game, Aftermath is adding new missions, characters, locations and features.
This includes bringing first-person mode to the game, which changes the perception of how the action flows around you.
And based on the popularity of titles like Call of Duty Zombies, you can expect plenty of people to be queuing up to try this out.
More melee mechanics are also being added via Aftermath, providing new ways to survive the hungry hordes.
And there are also reasons to buy this new package on next-gen devices like PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Saber has confirmed that exclusive content is coming to next-gen devices, telling fans: “Play in glorious 4K|60 FPS on next-gen systems. Endure endless waves of increasingly difficult zombies in the new Horde Mode XL game mode, exclusive to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, featuring hundreds more zombies on screen than ever before possible.
“Horde Mode XL will arrive in a free post-launch update alongside further next-gen enhancements and support for PS5 and XSX|S console features.”
