This new Ubisoft developer diary gives a glimpse of what it takes to survive in ZombiU.
Ubisoft’s ZombiU, the Wii U survival horror launch title, is one of those games that attracts fans despite some faults. If you’re still not sure of the mechanics of the whole thing, this latest developer diary video should show you how that pad can come in very, very handy.
“The main point is that you need to use your brain to stay alive in these kind of situations,” senior producer Guillaume Brunier helpfully points out. The Pad performs all kinds of functions, from spraypaint communication device, to machine gun turret, to in-game map. It’s going to be a real wrench when your initial survivor dies and you have to pry the in-game Bug-Out Bag from his or her cold, dead fingers.
If you were already eager to get your mitts on a Wii U, this zombie title is probably just icing on the cake; but if you were looking for a reason to, perhaps the tricks the console shows off here will be enough to seal the deal.
