ZombieU Gameplay Footage: You Die Its Over!

Herner Klenthur

Does the concept of a zombie game that when you die its truly over entice you? Zombie U for the WII has some seriously awesome controls and this is coming from a guy who is not a WII Fan. It also has the very unique angle of when you die.. it truly is game over forever. Checkout some bad ass footage and explanation of how the game works below.

Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio behind critically acclaimed titles like From Dust, Beyond Good & Evil and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors.

This fear-fueled first-person shooter takes all the terror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements, including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.

ZombiU showcases the innovative features of the Nintendo Wii U GamePad and creates new game experiences not possible on other consoles. The Nintendo Wii U GamePad serves as the player’s ultimate survival kit, called the “Bug Out Bag.” The Bug Out Bag is a backpack containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can scavenge from the limited resources available in the devastated cityscape. ZombiU also uses the Nintendo Wii U GamePad’s touch screen, gyroscope and camera to create a tactile connection between gamers and the in-game world. Finally, ZombiU features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the role of “Zombie Master,” spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the Nintendo Wii U GamePad while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in first-person shooter view with the Nintendo Wii U Pro controller.

        You do realize that the Wii U is a new console and not just a controller… right?

        This looks awesome! Though I hate that fact that it’s Wii U exclusive.
