Are you burned out on World War Z? Do you wish there was more content for you to sink your teeth into? How about private lobbies for you and your friends to play in without worrying about unknown people trolling you?

If yes is your answer to all of the above, then worry no further. Focus Home Interactive has just rolled in its free content roadmap for the months of May, June and July! Hopefully this also includes various fixes for everything else in between, seeing as there are still a section of people unable to enjoy the game fully because of technical issues. In any case, you can see the roadmap below.

This announcement comes after the heels of the recent reveal of new content coming later this month, in the form of free DLC. This DLC includes a new mission for the Tokyo episode, bringing its total up to three, which is in line with all the other episodes. Maybe this means that we might see a new episode next, in a totally different place, which is pretty exciting. At the same time, this mission takes place on a cruise ship, if the pictures from the tweet are to be believed. A new special zombie is also going to be introduced, which is a breath of fresh air considering there is a real lack of variety among the special zombies right now.

All of these updates will come this May. In June, be prepared for what I consider to be the final boss of my gaming career thus far: a new six-skull difficulty. The five-star one is the absolute bane of my existence, but I cannot stop replaying it. I have dedicated the rest of the year to finishing it; I’m just waiting for some of my friends to get their copies and my internet to be upgraded. This six-star difficulty will also introduce a unique reward, but honestly, completing it is a reward on its own. June will also see new bonus cosmetics and more, so be sure to stick around for that.

July sees the introduction of the Weekly Challenge mode, which is akin to something Days Gone will be implementing in its first free DLC this June. There will also be new cosmetics, maybe in the form of new character skins, so there’s something to look forward to.

Of course, there are still major updates coming our way, all for free of course. These include:

  • Wave-based survival mode (akin to the one from Left 4 Dead)
  • Private lobbies (finally!)
  • The ability to switch classes during PvPvZ matches
  • Field of view (FOV) and level of detail sliders for PC version

World War Z is now available to play on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Epic Games Store on PC. Check out my review of the game here.
