World War Z Catch All (Left 4 Dead Clone)

Looks a lot like Left 4 Dead. Xbox One, PS4, Windows
Coop play

My kids are excited about this game. They enjoy L4D and it's fun to play it with them. This looks like you kill a LOT of zombies. Rivers of zombies with tons of weapons.

PS4 Launch Trailer


Strangely, didn't see a thread when I searched for world war z. Found one on a game called infestation (the warz).

Wow that looks crazy! Definite L4D vibe. He’s a little screechy but I really liked that streamer too!

I'd never seen him before either. My son showed me that video. We used to play L4D2 together. I have pre-ordered the game and then if it's good, we'll get 2 more copies for my two oldest. Thankfully, they can still meet the minimum requirements. Probably would have gotten it on PS4 but local co op isn't supported.

Wow, I really needed a game like this to come out. Killing Floor and Vermintide weren't cutting it lately. It was a pain to find for PC with Playstation pretending everything is an exclusive, and being on the Epic game store. At least it's only $35.

Picked this up too. Releases on PC tomorrow. $35 sounds about right.

Was looking at picking it up, but have no interest in installing Epic’s craptastic spyware game client on my system. I’ll wait for a Steam release, or maybe just skip the PC version entirely and get it on Xbox One.

Does look kinda good. A thorough review from ACG as always:

I wonder whether the title associating it with the book and the Tom Cruise movie helps or hurts this game from a marketing standpoint?

I thought I read a month or two ago that Turtle Rock or some of the people involved with L4D were making a new L4D-esque game on their own. Is this that, or was that something else?

For me it hurts it. As interested as I am, I can't really get past that it's based on the Brad Pitt (not Tom Cruise) WWZ movie.
Turtle Rock Studios are making a new L4D-esque game, Back 4 Blood

Looking forward to this one on pc!

Played a bit over lunch. I would not be surprised if they got sued for copyright infringement. It is so much like Left 4 Dead. I played a mission in Moscow and it reminded me a lot of getting gas cans in the mall. Very similar sound cues on boss zombies, too (not that they are the same sounds but same idea and effect). There are areas of the map to explore that are blocked off but you can, I assume, access them later. I played solo because I was unable to connect to the server. The game looks fantastic. It plays well. The weapons have a good feel and sound. The AI party members are not brain dead. I didn't encounter any bugs or other issues. I was able to alt-tab out of the game without it getting all messed up (yeah). I imagine I'll be getting a second and third copy for my kids so we can play together. Overall, I really liked the 30 minutes I spent with the game so far.

I'm Dakhath on the Epic Store if anyone wants to team up

I’m kind of all in on the Epic store so I am probably going to pick it up specifically because it’s on there. Steam needs some competition. And this game looks pretty great!

My son played on my account for a while and is really enjoying it. So much so that I had to make him go do homework so I could play.

I’ll get it next week on pc.

Add me under Delbin12.

I watched a stream of this last night on dlive while waiting for my database import. They did an amazing job capturing the flowing tidal wave of zombies from the movie, and the game looks and plays fantastic. It's definitely L4D3 though, right down to being abandoned on a rooftop by helicopters.

Is there a cover mechanic? I'm curious about this being 3rd person. Else, are you able to switch to 1st person?
