All Articles: Zombie Army Trilogy
Two, count ’em, two games about fighting the undead in the waning days of World War II will be available on stores this week. And, interestingly enough, both are currently available to download through digital storefronts. The public has spoken, and they want discs!
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood brings B.J. Blazkowicz back to the frontlines on the PS4 and Xbox One. As a prequel to last year’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, Blazkowicz will get to do some 1940s-style Nazi hunting, but he’ll also tangle with an entire village of zombies. Ach du lieber!
But Blazkowicz won’t be fighting alone as Zombie Hitler himself is behind the undead shenanigans in Zombie Army Trilogy for the PS4 and Xbox One. A standalone spinoff of Sniper Elite III, Zombie Army Trilogy is a team-based game where the Allies have to stop this final solution for Nazi world domination. Ach du lieber, wieder!
A third round of zombie hunting is available to shoppers this week in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos for the PS4. Published by XSEED, Onechanbara Z2 features the further adventures of the “bikini zombie squad,” a group of Japanese sisters who kill zombies with swords while wearing bikinis… obviously.
Finally this week, Codemasters will release F1 2015, the latest Formula 1 racing sim, and first to be released for the PS4 and Xbox One. If you love open wheel racing, this is the game for you. But sorry, no zombies.
You’ll have a scary good time with today’s Xbox Games Store update as two horror titles (and one skateboarding game) are newly available for the Xbox One.
First up is White Night, a striking black and white exploration game that will force players to face their fear of the dark (it’s OK, you can admit it, we’re all scared of the dark). White Night will tap into another universal fear, creaky 1930s mansions, as it throws puzzles and survival horror scenarios at you. I really hope there’s not a creepy clown…
Also available on this fine Friday is Zombie Army Trilogy, Rebellion’s bloody spinoff of their Sniper Elite series. Hitler’s a zombie and his army of genetically modified undead hordes are overrunning Europe. And guess what, it’s up to you to stop him. Preferably by socking zombie Hitler right in his zombie jaw.
Finally, side-scrolling skateboarding sim OlliOlli kickflips onto the Xbox One this week. After debuting on the PS4 and Wii U, OlliOlli’s final stop completes the new-generation trifecta.
More information on all three of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Sony kicks off their eight-week Spring Fever promotion with Helldivers, a top-down shooter set in a dystopian future where players are tasked with defending mankind from a horde of alien invaders. It sounds like a good time will be had by all. And I do mean all, Helldivers is a Cross-Buy title compatible with the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
Also available this week is the PS3 and PS4 launch of “Contemplation,” the second episode from Resident Evil Revelations 2. Capcom has plans to complete this chapter of the Resident Evil saga in a timely manner as the remaining two episodes should launch next week and the week after, respectively. If Resident Evil doesn’t have enough zombie Nazis for your taste, then prepare to square off against undead Hitler in Rebellion’s Zombie Army Trilogy, which will also be released for the PS4 this week. Even more horror can be found in the noirish White Night, which is a survival horror game that’s rendered completely in black and white.
Something slightly less horrifying will be available for PS4 and Vita owners as OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood will take the side-scrolling skater off the streets and onto the set of a blockbuster film. Can you skate on top of the Olliwood sign? Yes, yes you can. Finally this week, La-Mulana EX will make Vita owners very happy as the cave exploration title will appear on Sony’s handheld in its most complete edition yet.
Rebellion has announced that Zombie Army Trilogy, their game that asks how World War II would have gone differently if Hitler were a zombie in control of an undead army, will be released on March 6.
Zombie Army Trilogy will bring the first two episodes in the series to the PS4 and Xbox One for the first time while also concluding the story with an all-new chapter. Naturally, the game will also be released for the PC and players who already own the first two games will receive a 60% discount if they purchase the complete trilogy.
In addition to the expanded campaign, Zombie Army Trilogy will include an exclusive Horde Mode as well as four never-before-seen playable characters.
That’s everything you need to know about Rebellion’s upcoming Zombie Army Trilogy, a game that takes place during an alternate World War II where Zombie Hitler leads an army of Nazi Zombies. Zombie Army Trilogy began life in 2013 as a spinoff/standalone expansion to Rebellion’s popular Sniper Elite V2. A sequel became available eight months later with plans to conclude the series in a third game sometime last year. It looks like those plans got put on hold so Rebellion could also bring the game to the PS4 and Xbox One.
According to Rebellion, Zombie Army Trilogy will include 15 missions that are playable solo or cooperatively by up to four players. A set of five survival maps for Horde Mode and nine playable characters will round out the package. Oh, and did I mention that you get to cap it off with a battle against Zombie Hitler? Because you do.
Zombie Army Trilogy will “rise” in early 2015.
