World War Z Launch Trailer Shows That War is Good for Zombie Slaughter
World War Z (the video game) launches in just four days, and it’s looking to be a lot of fun. At least I’m excited to try it. The launch trailer just dropped, set to the fun beat of Edwin Starr’s protest song War (what is it good for) — which, if the game doesn’t review well, might not have been the best song to lead with as we’ve seen with other games). I still really like just how well the zombie wave thing from the movie has been done here.
From the press release:
Saber Interactive and Focus have released the new launch trailer for World War Z , the highly anticipated action-packed co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster movie. Take a look at the explosive launch trailer, set to the song “War” covered by Black Stone Cherry, and prepare for the dead in four more days.
