Its a new game, discount if you own previous. Next gen upgrade free when it's done too.

To be quite honest, this looks better than Back 4 Blood. Shooting mechanics don't look as floaty and the melee combat reminds me of Dead Rising. I'm in.

So I'm currently playing the Gamepass version of the original WWZ game but is this going to be a free (next-gen) update for that? Or will I have to purchase it? Or does the Gamepass version still get a visual update so it runs at 60fps (as I believe it doesn't currently).

Also will there be a physical PS5/Series X release of this game?

Armed with concentrated biosamples, the new World War Z Booster zombie type enhances all zombies around it, making them even deadlier.

Good stuff, although I'm holding out for the Nintendo Switch base version (no Aftermath though, as far as I can tell) in November. It's that kind of twitch/melee game that I just like playing away from the TV, so hopefully the port holds up with an acceptable level of trimmings.
