Season 2 adds new PvE missions, crossplay, and a horde mode to World War Z.
Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have outlined the roadmap for World War Z‘s second season of free content. Topping the list are two new PvE missions located in New York and Moscow. They will be joined by Horde Mode Z, which, you’ve guessed it, is a wave-based survival mode.
Other additions include a new weapon and cosmetics, a new zombie type (which is yet to be detailed), crossplay support, and the ability to prestige rank up for new weapon skins and perks. The new content will be added to the game across two updates in Q4 2019.
World War Z is a four-player co-op shooter based on the movie that was loosely based on the book of the same name. It was a surprise hit on its release in April and judging by the continued drip-feed of content it appears the game continues to thrive. In our review, we called the game a “relentless piece of AA action fluff.”
The game’s first season of content added a Weekly Challenge mode, a Tokyo-based mission, and an extreme difficulty setting.
World War Z is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Windows PC via the Epic Games store.
