Ubisoft has officially announced today that the previously exclusive Wii U exclusive ZombiU will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One under the new name of Zombi. The game’s existence was previously leaked by the Taiwanese game rating board listing it for PS4 and Xbox One.
So how is this going to work? ZombiU was heavily reliant on the Wii GamePad for it’s second screen experience which included access to the game’s minimap and inventory. Well the team behind the port, the Melbourne Australia-based Straight Right, moved the mini-map to the main screen, but found a way to minimize it’s effect on the main screen even leaving the main screen if not needed. There is also now a dedicated button for your backpack, however accessing it does not pause the game.
On top of this, the game will add new melee weapons, updated controls to improve the look and feel of first person movement, and the ability to shine your flashlight with a wider-brighter shine, which will drain more battery life and attract more zombies.
Currently no release date has been set for the upcoming port.
