Product Description

Product Description

London is falling! Are YOU prepared? It is 2012 and the Last Blight is upon us…It was foretold.

For the second time in history, a great plague has enveloped London in a fog of death. Big Ben tolls as hundreds upon thousands of the unprepared die or are infected by a sickness worse than death...

You are still breathing, for now. But how long will you survive in the labyrinth of London streets and underground – abandoned by the outside world, surrounded by the Infected. The horrifying remains of humanity ravaged by the foul disease shuffle through the streets, waiting to prey on your living flesh at every turn!

ZombiU is built from the ground up to take advantage of the Wii U and its revolutionary new controller and will test your will to survive in a fear-fueled zombie Survival Horror First Person Shooter. So grab hold of the Swiss knife of survival kits – your new controller – and stock up your Bug-Out Bag with supplies! Make every second count; you only get one chance.

STAY HUMAN, WE ARE A DYING BREED.

Key Features

  • TWO SCREENS, TWICE THE FEAR - Feel the tension mount as you try to keep an eye on your TV and controller screen.
  • SURVIVAL-HORROR AT ITS BEST - Resources are in short supply while your enemies are legion; you never know when you will find more weapons, ammunition, first aid and food. Use them wisely!
  • DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT YOUR BOB - The new controller becomes your Bug-Out Bag; the ultimate all-in-one survival kit for your tools, inventory, med kits, maps and more.
  • UNIQUE DEATH MECHANIC - If you die, you wake up to play an entirely new character who is another survivor in the same terrifying position. You will want to recover your old BOB, now worn by the last character you played...who is now a zombie!
  • HORDE AT YOUR DOOR - Prepare yourself for the inevitable onslaught. Stock up on guns, ammo and supplies, and lock down your Safe House! It’s time to defend your home against the ravenous, infected horde!
  • SURVIVORS VS. ZOMBIES - An adversarial multiplayer mode where one player takes over the role of Zombie Master (top-down view) spawns enemies and springs traps with a simple touch on the new controller; while a second player (first-person view) fights for survival with the Classic Controller!
  • MERCY KILLER - When your character gets infected, your online friends are alerted of your death and can come and hunt down your zombified character to loot the gear in your BOB and put you out of your misery!
  • BASED IN LONDON - A city steeped in grisly history, royal secrets and bloody tales, where the medieval fortress of the Tower of London and the stately Buckingham Palace contrast with the modernity of the world’s most cosmopolitan city!

Product Description

Please note WiiU titles are not compatible with the standard Nintendo Wii

Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio behind critically acclaimed titles like From Dust, Beyond Good & Evil and, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter invites takes all the horror, chaos and tension found in the best 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 track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.

ZombiU showcases the innovative features of the Nintendo Wii U Controller and creates new game experiences not possible on other consoles. The Nintendo Wii U Controller serves as the player's ultimate survival kit, called the "Bug Out Bag." The Bug Out Bag is a backpack containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can scavenge from the limited resources available in the devastated cityscape. ZombiU also will use the Nintendo Wii U Controller's touch screen, gyroscope and camera to create a tactile connection between gamers and the in-game world. Finally, ZombiU features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the role of "Zombie Master," spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the Nintendo Wii U GamePad while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in first-person shooter view with a Wii wireless classic controller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the survival horror 30 Nov 2012
By Runeweaver VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There have been some complaints about this game,reviewers moaning about the combat system the lack of melee weapons and slugging controls.

Personally all those things are about making this game a survival horror rather than an zombie shooter.

First off the only melee weapon is a cricket bat,the reason to anyone who lives in the UK is obvious,you cant buy swords here,even finding an axe would be near impossible,the other reason for only having a cricket bat if you could kill the zombies with a single swing of your katana the fear this game generates would disappear in seconds,if i want to play a game with lots of weapons il play dead island which is a great game,Zombie U is taking the Zombie genre back to games like Resi evil 1 and 2,where your choices are limited, your ammo for your guns is barely enough to survive and you worry about whats around the next corner,rather than running around the corner with your swords slashing and heads flying off in all directions.

The combat and controls are also about slowing you down and making you work to survive,you only have a single attack with the bat which is bring the bat down hard on the head of the zombie,why would you waste your energy doing anything else,only by destroying the brain can you stop a zombie,anything else and your survivor is gonna be joining them.

If you want a slower paced zombie game thats more about staying alive than slaughtering zombies,read on,if you want an action packed game where you leave bits of undead coating everything in a hundred yards get dead island riptide when its released.

5.0 out of 5 stars A proper Survival Horror! Tough and Creepy. 6 Dec 2012
By K. Trebell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game with my WiiU as part of the Zombiu bundle. I was really looking forward to it but then got worried when the reviews came back and it was getting anything from 4.5's (Gamespot) to 9's (ONM, Eurogamer) and even 9.7 from Gamesmaster and a range in between.

The game sees you as one of few survivors of a Zombie Apocalypse that has ravaged the world trying to work your way to safety under the guidance of the "Prepper", who's voice guides you via the Gamepad as you play (which is itself represented as an in game item, a nice little tough).

Having played it I'm very pleased to report that it's definitely much closer to the higher range of scores for my tastes but there is a caveat: if you want handholding blastey shooters like the Gamespot guy seemed to want then there is nothing for you here. If on the other hand you want a deliberate, challenging, atmospheric and genuinely scary survival horror then this is a fantastic offering. This is a game where you'll be looking to avoid combat and especially avoid the noise of shooting whenever you can and where your trust cricket bat will be your best friend (Alastair Cook would have done well here).

I love the London based setting of the game and the murky visuals are just perfect for setting and backdrop to this game.

I particular enjoy the way other players show up as Zombies in the game in locations where they have died and that you can leave messages to guide or trick each other. This game is very evocative of Demon's and Dark Souls in difficulty and the need to accept that you will die and that learning from those deaths is an essential part of the game.

Overall this is an excellent game , truly something different and a very brave and mature title to put out at launch. I applaud Nintendo and Ubisoft for doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric, addictive and rewarding 20 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Absolutely love this game. It's loaded with atmosphere, especially if you use the headphone mode to play it where you'll hear zombies creeping up behind you etc.

I've not been quite so drawn into a game since I played the original Splinter Cell, which seems like a lifetime ago now.

The storyline is good and there are plenty of choices of difficulty levels so that even the novice gamer should not get frustrated and stuck. If you do you can just hop to the MiiVerse where other gamers will be more than happy to give you tips.

The gamepad is extremely well used. The multiplayer game takes a bit of getting used to to work out what's going on buy stick with it and you'll get there. This is an excellent release game and one that will last you many hours and all your friends will want to have a go at when they come round.

There's only 2 save slots, one for survival mode, where you only get one life to complete the game, and one for the normal mode where you re-spawn if you die. You then have to go find your last character and attack it to get your weapons and supplies back - nice!

It's a shame there's not more save slots so friends can have their own games saved but it's a small criticism.

There's an internet tie in to Ubisoft and as you complete certain goals in the game, you can, from the game menu, access bonus downloads from their site to enhance the game and the menus - no spoilers though!

Overall an amazing release game loaded with atmosphere. It's commendable that the sound design with this game as been treated with the same respect as the stunning visuals. The acting and music are first rate and this creates a completely emersive experience.
