Halloween update for World War Z: Aftermath adds new Booster zombie type along with Daily and Weekly Challenges

From Press Release:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Oct. 27, 2021 — A free post-launch update for Saber Interactive’s World War Z: Aftermath, the latest release in the ultimate co-op zombie shooter series inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film, introduces two new action-packed surprises: the deadly new Booster zombie type and Daily Challenges. You can experience both starting today on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam, with backwards compatibility on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X at 4K|60 FPS. World War Z: Aftermath will also launch on Google Stadia this winter, with full cross-platform play supported.

The Free Booster Zombie Update introduces the new Booster zombie type, adding more terror to the battlefield. Armed with concentrated bio samples, it enhances all zombies around it, making them even deadlier. This is one undead enemy you’ll want to keep a close watch for. Also added today are World War Z: Aftermath’s new Daily Challenges, giving the community new opportunities to earn bonus in-game rewards each day.

Finally, today’s update introduces rare Lore Documents that can appear on Daily and Weekly Challenge Maps. Finding all of them on each map unlocks a special passive perk for that level, giving players new discoveries, experiences and rewards when replaying missions through all of the game’s zombie-ravaged locations.

Powered by the next generation of Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z: Aftermath lets you play on your own with AI squadmates or in co-op for up to four players (with full crossplay between PC and consoles). Take on hordes of ravenous zombies in two totally new story campaign episodes set in the city of Rome (including Vatican City) and Russia’s snowbound Kamchatka peninsula.

Aftermath delivers the definitive World War Z package with all content from World War Z: Game of the Year Edition, including full episodes in New York, Moscow, Marseille, Jerusalem and Tokyo. Experience the heart-pounding immersion of Aftermath’s optional first-person mode, decimate the undead with a new melee system, and level eight unique classes with distinct play styles and customizable loadouts.

The true next-generation edition of World War Z: Aftermath will officially launch on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2022 with a free upgrade and other enhancements. The new Horde Mode XL is also scheduled to launch next year on next-gen consoles, Stadia and PC.
