May 21, 2019 World War Z nears 2 million units sold in one month New accolades gameplay trailer marks the fast-paced co-op shooter's success on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store

World War Z, the action-packed co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film, has sold nearly 2 million copies globally in its first month. In celebration Saber Interactive, in partnership with Focus Home Interactive, has released a new Accolades Trailer for the game.

World War Z has fast become one of our most successful interactive games to date. It’s a testament to both the incredible co-op action experience that Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have crafted, as well as the strong appeal of our hit franchise with fans across the globe,” said Josh Austin, SVP, WW Licensing and Interactive at Paramount Pictures.

Saber recently revealed the first season of free content heading to World War Z in the coming months, including a brand-new Tokyo mission, a deadly new zombie type, six-skull difficulty setting, Weekly Challenge mode and bonus cosmetics. Other future free updates will feature a wave-based survival mode, private lobbies, the ability to switch classes during PvPvZ matches, field of view (FOV) and level of detail sliders on PC and more.

Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies – able to move and strike as one collective herd as well as break off into individual attackers – at a time on players. Choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, including New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.

World War Z is currently available digitally and at most major retailers on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One for $39.99, as well as Windows PC via the Epic Games Store for $34.99. This game is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB. For more information, visit http://wwzgame.com, and follow the game on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WWZGame, Twitter @WWZTheGame, and Instagram @WWZGame.
