Zombie Army 4: Dead War
Zombie Army 4: Dead War is coming to us from Rebellion Developments. This is a studio most well known for the Sniper Elite games but they also released 2018’s Strange Brigade. Why is this important? Because they have not only proven they can make high quality shooters, but have even proven they know how to make 4 player cooperative survival/horde campaigns. They also have an entire trilogy of Zombie Army games in their back catalogue and have had time to update and advance this franchise.
Get a group of friends together and Zombie Army 4 looks like it’ll be a lot of mindless fun. With zombie sharks and the slow-mo bullet technology found in the Sniper Elite series, it’s hard to look past this release!
