Zombie Army 4: Dead War just received a next-gen upgrade. Now, you will be able to play this co-op zombie game in all its glory with new consoles. The upgrade is completely free and is now live on PlayStation 5. For Xbox Series X|S, the upgrade will be available on April 8. The developer of the game, Rebellion Developments, also detailed the expected resolution and frame rate.

Both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will benefit from reduced loading time. The PS5 version will run at 4K 60 FPS whereas, Xbox Series X will feature two modes: Quality and Performance. The former runs the game at 4K 60 FPS and the latter at 1080p 120 FPS. However, it’s a little different for the less powerful Xbox Series S that can only support 1080p at 60 FPS. Keep in mind that all three consoles use DRS, which means that the resolution can sometimes drop below the targeted frame rate.

Besides display changes, the upgrade will also bring new features, crossplay support, new music, and bug fixes. You can read about them in detail below.

Balancing Changes and Bug Fixes

  • Balance changes have been applied to the mission, Death Canal.
  • Cross-platform multiplayer added for Windows 10 Store with Steam and Epic.
  • New music, combat pieces, and general gameplay pieces were added across all platforms.
  • Fixes applied to Damnation Valley to address issues raised with The Fan Service Challenge and with characters getting stuck in the Scaffolding Area.
  • In chapter 4 of Deeper than Hell, "Stop Schweiger Completing The Occult Engine" the objective will now update after killing all the zombies present in the area.
  • In chapter 4 of Alpine Blitz, players can no longer get stuck inside carriages.
  • On Xbox, cutscene audio issues are fixed in Deeper than Hell.
  • General bug fixing and improvements.

You can read about these changes on the official site as well.
