From Press Release:
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Aug. 10, 2023 – The new “Holy Terror” update is here for World War Z: Aftermath, the ultimate co-op zombie shooter from Saber Interactive inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster 2013 film. Free today on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, this latest patch delivers a ton of new features, including the new Rome map for Horde Mode XL, a fourth upgrade path for all classes, new weapons and weapon perks, new challenges, and more.
Players can sport fresh looks for the season with the premium World War Z: Aftermath – Victory Lap Weapons Skin Pack, available today on all platforms for $4.99, featuring stylish new options for the Mini-21 Rifle, S890 Shorty Shotgun, HW416 Assault Carbine, and Repeater X Crossbow.
Horde Mode XL* debuted earlier this year, and now players can experience its supersized action on a second map: Rome! Fight to survive in the shadow of the Colosseum against special XL waves bursting with over 1,000 hungry zombies. Challenge mode, which lets players ramp up the difficulty with rotating mutators for greater rewards, is also now available for Horde Mode XL’s previously released Tokyo map.
In addition, new mutators have been added to the standard Horde Mode, as well as to daily and weekly challenges, and players can now search for teammates for Horde Mode and Horde Mode XL using the quick match system.
Today’s update also greatly enhances player progression with the new fourth upgrade path for all classes, offering nine new perks for each class. AI party members now have their own different classes, too, and can use special abilities like the Soldier’s Grenades, the Fixer’s Supply Bag, and the Medic’s Stim Pistol.
You’ll want some serious firepower to handle all these new threats, and today’s update has you covered with two free new weapons – the 1877 SBL Repeating Rifle, delivering high-damage, lever-action accuracy, and the MRL202 “Commando” Multi-shot Rocket Launcher. You’ll also discover new in-game weapon perks, as well as four free new character trinkets.
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 with all content from World War Z: Game of the Year Edition, including full episodes in New York, Moscow, Marseille, Jerusalem and Tokyo, plus two new campaign episodes in Rome (including Vatican City) and the Kamchatka peninsula. Experience the heart-pounding immersion of Aftermath’s optional first-person mode, decimate the undead with a new melee system, and level up eight unique classes with distinct play styles and customizable loadouts.
*Horde Mode XL is only available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
