ZombiU's Gameplay Trailer Shows the Tower Bridge, Hopes You'll Escape
Ubisoft has released the latest trailer for ZombiU and we get to see the GamePad used to great effect once again...
I've said before that Ubisoft's ZombiU might just be the Wii U's exclusive killer app; and if this trailer is anything to go by, that may very well be the case.
In this latest gameplay trailer for the zombie shooter, the player is tasked to haul his ass to the Tower Bridge where a chopper will provide evacuation. While we don't know if the protagonist is able to get on the chopper or not, it's the journey that's noteworthy here.
We're shown how the Wii U's GamePad will act as a sniper rifle, a lockpick and even as a way to find hidden passages within the game's environments. Based on how it's used, Ubisoft might be breaking new ground in a console game right here.
While not much of the plot has been revealed so far (to be honest, do you even need a reason to kill zombies?), Ubisoft reveals, "For the second time in history, a great plague has enveloped London in a fog of death. Big Ben tolls as hundreds upon thousands of the unprepared die or are infected by a sickness worse than death...You are still breathing, for now. But how long will you survive..."
So it's a zombie fog of death, then? I might be inaccurate in that statement but lucky for aspiring Wii U owners, ZombiU will be available on launch day for the Wii U.
Do you think the GamePad implementation is enough to win core gamers over or will it go the way of Red Steel?
