Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Saber Interactive have released a gameplay overview trailer for World War Z.

Here is an overview of the trailer and game, via Focus Home Interactive:

Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have just released a new gameplay overview trailer for World War Z, the highly anticipated co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. Narrated by Saber’s Creative Director Oliver Hollis-Leick, the new video dives into the intense action that players can expect while scavenging, running and blasting hordes of hundreds of zombies.

World War Z’s co-op campaign takes place across four episodes, each containing three chapters, set in New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo. Before diving into a chapter, you will need to select a class and weapon loadout. Whether supporting the team with ammo and heals, specializing in explosives or unleashing devastating firepower, you’ll find a class suited to any playstyle.

In World War Z, every play session tells its own unique story of survival through the help of the AI director, which constantly adapts to the actions of you and your squad. For example, a stealthy approach is rewarded with far less zombies spawns, allowing you to conserve precious ammunition. When it comes to massive swarm events, struggling squads may also be granted additional defensive equipment such as an extra auto turret or mortar.

Alongside the narrative-driven campaign, players can also compete against each other in four-versus-four across a variety of PvPvZ modes. This includes zombified twists on classics such as King of the Hill, Domination and Deathmatch, alongside the all-new Scavenge Raid and Vaccine Hunt modes. Watch our PvPvZ trailer here to catch up on the competitive undead action.

World War Z is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 16.
