Zombie Army 4: Dead War takes place in the 1940s when an alternate history sees you fighting Nazi zombies. The resistance has defeated that bad boy, Hitler. But the dead are rising again and they want to feed on your flesh. Use your sniper rifle and other WW2 weapons to save humankind from the supernatural carnage of the walking dead.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is developed by Rebellion and contains the same gunplay mechanics as the Sniper-elite series. This grindhouse video game boasts spectacularly gruesome take-downs which will make you wince. It’s not for the faint-hearted and picking daisies with a friend while you skip along the Oranienburger Strasse isn’t its aim. Instead expect to explode, decapitate or otherwise dismember a multitude of dead Nazi soldiers.
This videogame looks like it has deeper progression and customization than the previous installments with enhanced melee attacks and weaponry which you can upgrade Fallout-style, at any number of workbenches. You can customize your play style and there’s also a co-op option so you can have fun with up to 4 players.
The upgraded kill cam looks more detailed than the previous video games with a slo-mo internal view. This shows the damage that your shots make as you take down those walking worm-feasts. The gameplay looks extremely reminiscent of classic horror movies such as chain saw massacre and the variety of different undead weirdos is plentiful.
There are killer Zombie Sharks, Nazi storm troopers with rotary saws and biologically enhanced Zombie Tanks to take down. There’s also plenty of upgrade-able goodies and perks to unlock as you progress through the video game. All in all, it looks like there’s a lot of macabre first-person shooter fun to be had.
