In the game, an outbreak has infected the population turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter takes all the best elements of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to take down their old, infected characters and recover their life-saving equipment.
ZombiU also features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the “King of the Zombies” role, spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the GamePad, while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in a first-person shooter view with the Pro Controller.
