It's like Division and Left 4 Dead had a baby...

(PvPvZ)Player vs Player vs Zombies is intriguing to me... Hopefully it ends up good.

Seems kinda tedius? Reload.... reload.... reload....

I wonder how ammo management works? I do like that it has traps. Probably other environmental stuff. I wonder if cars can be blown up? Or if cars can be driven into the zombies?

I am intrigued though and will watch for more news on this.


EDIT: watched another trailer that looks like significant weapon upgrades could be available. Looks fun.

That looks pretty rough, a lot of awful animations and textures in that game. Doesn't mean it's a bad game but it's surely not a looker by any stretch.

I really think this looks great. The only disappointing thing in the lack of any new special zombies. The bloater, tank, hunter and screamer have been done in literally every zombie game since Left for Dead. It's time for something new there.

Looks great, but I’m concerned about it getting repetitive....? Is it just going to basically be ‘horde mode’ in different locations?

Basically yeah. You have 16 character types and you can gear them all up with class specific weapons that you earn via the various horde missions.

Just read it's 30 fps with no HDR on consoles.
Oh well
I still think looks great either way. I'm going to wait for some reviews to come in first though.

It's getting very good reviews so far. Framerate is solid on the pro consoles and up around 90fps with ultra settings on some high end PCs.

Yup hearing great things about this game. Saying it’s really fun and the next Left 4 Dead. I think I will get it on my X1X.

Edit: and bought :)

Watching a stream of one of the New York levels now from an X1X and it looks really good. Really solid, even with literally 100s of zombies charging the players.

I was watching a stream this morning too. Looked very solid and fluid.

I watched a bit of a stream on Saturday and it definitely looked fun. If you enjoyed Left 4 Dead this seems to be right up that alley.

It's really sad to see most developers leaving local co-op out of games these days. I might get it because it looks like heaps of fun, but lack of local co-op kills it for me, back to left 4 dead for me and the bros it seems.

I've heard it's very short if you don't play on the highest difficulty. PVP is also pretty bad too. Probably wait for a sale.

Just a heads up when you start the game. If you choose to play the game Multiplayer Campaign, you choose to play with bots by selecting OFFLINE. And then you are prompted to choose which Chapters you want to play OR there is Quick Play. DO NOT choose Quick Play if you want to play the chapters in order. Quick Play will throw you into a random chapter at a random section of the chapter. I backed out once I saw on the loading screen it was putting me into Chapter 3 section 1.

Wow, this game performs great with the flow of zombies coming at you and climbing over gates. There are areas with hundreds of Zombies. The AI for your coop partners is actually pretty good. I was playing before work this morning and I didn't want to stop playing chapter 1, but I had to put the Xbox in rest mode and head to work :(

For just single player should I pay any attention to this game or just continue ignoring it?

This was not on my radar but after reading a few things yesterday I figured why not, I had a $5 credit from Microsoft Rewards so only cost me $35. If this was a $60 game I would of waited for a sale but this seems like a solid budget game from the little I was able to play last night. The 2nd NY level did glitch on us at the train and would not let us move forward, I had to eventually quit and received zero XP which was frustrating.

Definitely not as good as Left For Dead IMO, not sure I will enjoy the levels as much, it needs more enemy variety and I found myself needing to constantly find ammo and ran out quick but for what it is I can seem myself putting some time in especially with the leveling up system. I hope any glitches and bugs get worked out and they support the game.
