World War Z players are in for a pleasant surprise, as a new teaser from Saber Interactive confirms some new content coming our way.

The co-op zombie shooter has been released for two weeks now, and the general consensus across the board is mostly positive. I, for one, didn’t expect such a huge turn-out of support for the game, which is probably the biggest proof as of now that the zombie genre, much like its namesake, is virtually undead. Fans of the genre popularized by Left 4 Dead’s formula were quick to jump on this release, which is a welcome one considering there hasn’t been any title like Left 4 Dead for quite some time now.

Despite its various issues like connectivity problems, plus some game-breaking bugs, World War Z went on to top the UK Charts in its first week of release, selling one million copies along the way. This is just further proof that there is still a huge potential market for zombie games, one which we may see come to its peak at E3, where Techland’s Dying Light 2 is going to get a presentation.

It looks like there’s more good news on the horizon for World War Z players as well, seeing as Saber Interactive teased the release of a new mission along with a special zombie to be made available next month.

The new mission is set in the Tokyo episode, which is notable for only receiving two scenarios instead of the three give to the other episodes. This mission might complete the Tokyo episode and pave the way for a new episode altogether. The new special zombie, also teased by Saber, looks to be a virus-spreading zombie that quickly takes over its host. It sounds sinister, and I can’t wait to kill one in a game (most likely after getting killed by it, I suppose).

This upcoming DLC was also confirmed by Saber Interactive to be free, which means that everyone who bought the game will be able to enjoy it immediately. This has certainly piqued my interest, and I am looking forward to more content from the developers to pad out the game and make it more enjoyable for fans to play. A content roadmap was also teased to be in the works, so we can definitely expect even more content to come in the future.

You can check the recent patch notes 1.02 and 1.03 here, which aim to fix some of the issues in the game, particularly with regards to connectivity. You can also check out my review of the game here, which I loved, but am frustrated by at the same time due to its massive online problems.

World War Z is now available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store on PC.

World War Z Review: Great Potential Tainted By Mediocre Online Service
Underneath the connectivity issues and game-breaking bugs is a solid third-person zombie shooter in the vein of the classic Left 4 Dead series.
  • -Solid and weighty gunplay with a huge variety of guns
  • -Amazing game and level design
  • -Good replayability
  • -A stand-out co-op game, whenever the online works
  • -Bad connectivity issues in a primarily multiplayer game
  • -Presence of some game-breaking bugs
  • -Relatively small content size (unless updated)
