Default World War Z (PC)

I hadn't seen a thread for this, so if there is one just merge it.

Videos have started hitting YouTube over the weekend of gameplay. I'm not a huge zombie game fan, but I loved the movie and the gameplay doesn't look too bad.

There's some streamers on twitch playing it right now for anyone that wants to check it out. Looks like a modern take on Left 4 Dead.

That's exactly what Angry Joe said about it on his stream, that it doesn't make sense playing this game without friends. Also they criticized the amount of content in the game, saying that they would not purchase it at full price.

On the plus side the crowd tech they're using looks pretty decent, the last game which did this well was AC:Unity whose crowd tech at the time was amazing with hundreds of characters on screen at the same time.

Looks fun as a coop game. If it was on Steam, I'd probably pick it up pretty quick.

Looks like mindless fun (for a short time) granted you play with real people.

Yeah, I've been pining for a new version of Left 4 Dead so I am interested, but not sure I like the 3rd person perspective. I saw Angry Joe playing some sort of weird multiplayer match but haven't seen anything resembling the monsters/survivors multiplayer from L4D yet (if it exists).

I also wish it was on Steam - not necessarily for the launcher or whatnot, but because they likely would have offered a 4-pack and Epic doesn't do anything like that.

I don't like it either, the way the entire character model was shaking when firing weapons was really off-putting for some reason. Probably because I've been playing the Division 2 which does 3rd person excellently.

The rest of what I've seen looks pretty cool though, so I'll probably keep it on my radar. Though the Walking Dead game looked neat at first as well

Let me know if you end up picking it up on Epic. If you do, I might as well to do some coop.

I acquired it... Basically left for dead 3. Third person perspective is fine.

Don't do it yet as I have some other things keeping me away from gaming at the moment, but should freed up near the end of May. So wait until then so I'm not a noob like in Helldivers.

I tried the single-player mode and I don't find the third person perspective suitable for the fast-paced action, mostly compared to L4D, since WWZ essentially imitates it. The game wants to play like L4D, while it feels like The Division and the result is a bit confusing, particularly for me as a seasoned L4D player.

Man that game (Helldivers) was good! I'm sure Apex can keep me going for a bit longer

So I picked this up and it's pretty fun! Like how they've upped the zombie count from Left 4 Dead, though I don't think the story writing and set pieces are as neat as L4D had. Only played on Normal level which seems a bit too easy but probably good to get used to the different battlefields.

A few technical words of warning - probably won't affect most, but I nearly refunded this though decided to overlook:
  • No Ultrawide Support (devs know so hopefully incoming)
  • Launching through Steam (to get overlay) makes it so you cannot play online (not sure why - unless it's an anti-cheat thing)
  • Likely due to the above, my Steam Controller is not recognized even though the overlay runs
  • No FoV slider
Went with KB+M and thought I go for it and enjoyed it enough that I will just keep playing that way (though I hope they will address these issues).

Lol. There are quite a few classes to level up so I can start a new one at level 1 once you jump aboard.

It's nothing like that game, this is a left 4 dead copy.
