The rather inventive post-apocalyptic zombie action game, Zombi has finally launched on current gen consoles. The game was originally called, ZombiU and was an exclusive title for Nintendo’s WiiU video game console (hence the “U” in the title). ZombiU made great use of the WiiU gamepad’s second screen which was used to sort inventory and open doors in real-time while zombies could be seen approaching and/or attacking on the main TV screen. This game mechanic created a level of tension that’s often lacking in modern zombie games.
Here’s the official description:
London is falling. Are you prepared? The Last Blight is upon us. It was foretold. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded London in a fog of death. Big Ben tolls as thousands of unprepared die, or worse, are infected by a sickness more gruesome than death. You’re still breathing, for now, but how long will you survive the labyrinth of London’s streets and underground canals, abandoned by the outside world and surrounded by infected? The horrifying remains of humanity, ravaged by the terrifying disease, are shuffling through the streets, waiting at every turn to prey on your living flesh. The nail-biting survival experience of ZombiU™ has been upgraded for download and now is available to everyone on Xbox One. Zombi takes the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring you a new level of horror. Test your will to survive, but beware: death is permanent, and one wrong move can cause you to lose everything.
Will you be checking out Zombi on the Xbox One? It really is a game that offers something different than the average action game and for its relatively cheap price, it’s definitely worth a look.
