If you’re among people who still indulge in some zombie-slaying action in World War Z game, we have some good news for you. Saber Interactive announced that it will be bringing cross-play support for their title, meaning that PC and console players will be able to play together. However, Nintendo Switch players are not eligible for this functionality.
We should mention that cross-play already existed in World War Z allowing PC and Xbox One players to play together, however, this is the first time PlayStation’s World War Z community will be able to join them as well.
This update is called World War Z Dronemaster and brings not only cross-play functionality but some new content too. We will get a new in-game class called – you guessed it – Dronemaster. This new class will allow players to employ drones and support their teammates from a distance.
This is what Saber Interactive has to say about the new 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.”
You can check out the gameplay footage in a video below:
In addition to a new class, Dronemaster brings new weapons including a rare semi-automatic grenade launcher called ACW-20. There’s also a number of new weapon upgrades, perk rebalancing, fixes, and various other quality-of-life improvements.
If you’ve never tried World War Z before, there’s no better time than now. The game is known for its amazing co-op mode, so grab your friends and enter the world loaded with zombie hordes.
