One of the titles that is in danger of being lost amongst all the big releases coming in the first part of this year is Zombie Army 4: Dead War. We’re pretty confident that you shouldn’t be sleeping on this game, though. Rebellion has an amazing track record this generation. Sniper Elite 3 and 4 were amazing experiences and Strange Brigade was an absolute blast. The Zombie Army series takes the mechanics of the Sniper Elite franchise and tasks you with taking out the undead. It’s fun when playing on your own but when you have a team behind you, you’re guaranteed to have a ton of fun.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is looking to be a significant step up from the Zombie Army Trilogy. Whereas those titles started off as DLC for Sniper Elite and then got their own release, this new game has been designed as a standalone entry from the start. This can be seen in the install size for the new game. Zombie Army Trilogy clocked in at 10.25 GB install on Xbox One. Zombie Army 4: Dead War is going to be more than double that at a solid 21.45 GB. And this is before you even add 4K and HDR support for Xbox One X which will be added at launch.
If you want to know more about the game, you can check out the latest video Rebellion has released that talks about the music and sound effects for the game. You can find that below along with the official description of the game.
