And there’s an explosive new zombie type too.
Saber Interactive calls The Bomber a rare encounter and notes that while it’s extremely volatile, it brings valuable bonus loot for those teams with the skills to defeat it. That first requires precise shots to the “safe zones”, such as its legs, then, once down, players can defuse the timed bombs strapped to its body in order to secure their reward.
As for the game’s new horde mode, imaginatively titled Horde Mode Z, it sees the team fighting off endless waves of increasingly difficult undead opponents.
As a match progresses, players will earn resources that can be spent on a randomized weapon pool, weapon upgrades, heavy weapons, equipment bags, medkits, and events kits to assist in their efforts. Additional resources can be earned by completing secondary objectives during a round, or by opening military crates hidden around a level using a breaching charge.
World War Z’s new update is the fifth released so far, and Saber Interactive says to expect one more as part of its current content season. Update six will bring cross-play support and new cosmetics, and the developer says more World War Z news will follow its release.
