Saber Interactive’s World War Z game is due out at some point this year but we’ve still no idea when. It may be sooner rather than later, considering that the game has been rated for release by the Australian ratings authority.
The Aussie ratings board has given the game a rating of MA 15+ due to violence, language, drug use, and themes. No surprise, really, because who wouldn’t be tripping balls on ket while running around bashing zombies in the balls, swearing at the top of their lungs. And, er, discussing themes around the camp fire?
World War Z is a four-player cooperative third-person shooter that has players fighting off massive swarms of zombies.
Featuring fast-paced gameplay and inspired by the Paramount Pictures property, World War Z explores new storylines and characters in gruesomely exciting gameplay, crafted specifically for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. World War Z releases in 2019.
