Fans of co-op online zombie shooter World War Z, the time has come to gather your allies across platforms to jump into some brand new content and features. Today, Focus Home Interactive has unleashed its latest update, which features a new class, in addition to full PvE crossplay functionality which lets you play with friends across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store. Learn all about the update here.
The new, versatile Dronemaster class World War Z has also released its first new playable class since it launched last year: the Dronemaster. This highly versatile character comes with its own personal drone which stuns zombies when they get too close for comfort. You can customize your drone in the perk tree to suit your play style and squad comp: increase its offensive capabilities to make it more lethal in an assault, or raise its defensive powers to better support your team.
Its unique ability lets you summon the trusty Quadrocopter, a nifty little ally that floats like a butterfly and stings like a flying robot with a mounted cannon! The drone grants buffs to whoever it follows, such as complete friendly fire immunity and temporary health boosts. The more powerful buffs, such as less damage taken and occasional ammo recovery, are prestige-rank unlocks.
Mini Grenade Launcher
In addition, today’s update features a new rare weapon pick-up with its own upgrade tree for your armory: the ACW-20. This low-caliber, semi-automatic grenade launcher is perfect for mopping up tightly packed groups, but watch out for friendly fire! There’s also a variety of new weapon upgrades, perk rebalancing, fixes and quality-of-life improvements.
New Weapon Skins
Finally, players can grab World War Z’s latest premium DLC today: the “Signature Weapons Pack,” which includes four unique weapon skins for the game’s main characters. This DLC is free for Season Pass and GOTY Edition owners. It is also available for standalone purchase on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.
