Focus Home Interactive and developer Saber Interactive have released a gameplay overview trailer today for World War Z: Aftermath that breaks down all of the new content coming in the expansion.
The expansion includes new story episodes, melee combat, first-person mode, a new class, cross-play across all consoles and PC, and more. It will launch this fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series version will launch in 2022 with a Horde Mode XL and other enhancements. Anyone who already owns World War Z: Aftermath will be able to upgrade for free.
Powered by the next generation of Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z: Aftermath lets you play with up to three friends or on your own with AI teammates against hordes of ravenous zombies in two huge and totally new story episodes set in the city of Rome and Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula.
New Stories from a World at War – All-new story episodes in Rome, Vatican City, and the Russian far east at Kamchatka. Play as both new and returning characters as you take the fight to the undead with a brutal new melee system, decimating zekes with unique moves, perks and dual-wield weapon options like the sickle and cleaver. Fend off new undead monstrosities, including swarms of flesh-hungry rats that will unleash total chaos on your team.

Endure endless waves of increasingly difficult zombies in the new Horde Mode XL game mode, exclusive to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, featuring hundreds more zombies on screen than ever before possible.
