New World War Z Trailer Introduces Character Classes, Abilities, and Perks

Saber Interactive has released a brand new trailer today for its upcoming co-op zombie shooter World War Z. The new trailer, which you can watch up above – and subscribe to our YouTube channel – gives us a look at the different character classes that players can utilise in their sessions.

Saber Interactive has done the hard work for me on this one by providing a nice bullet point list of character classes as well as their descriptions. Bless you, PR people. Bless you.

  • Gunslinger – For those who skip the questions and shoot first, the Gunslinger is loaded with an arsenal of weapon damage and ammo-boosting perks to mow down the dead.
  • Hellraiser  Enough explosives can solve any problem! Hellraisers come armed with C4 and other tools for effective crowd control.
  • Slasher  For warriors with a sense of elegance, the best way to kill is with your trusty blade. Slashers have perks that increase melee damage and effectiveness while their armed tasers deliver electrifying results.
  • Medic  Sometimes the best way to fight the undead is keeping your teammates from becoming one of them. Armed with a Stim Pistol, Medics can heal fellow survivors from a distance and help keep the chaos under control.
  • Fixer  When versatility in any situation is the highest priority, the Fixer is there for you, starting out with an explosive ammo case and several teammate ammo-restoring perks.
  • Exterminator  Fire is the answer! Armed with Molotov cocktails and increased fire damage, the Exterminator just wants to watch the undead burn.

Personally, I can see myself as a Gunslinger in World War Z. Anything with cowboy connotations and I’m all over it like flies on zombie poo.

World War Z is set to release sometime next year on PS4, though there isn’t a confirmed release date or window as of yet. It’s looking good though and it may give Sony’s Days Gone a run for its money if it’s any good.
