Remember last month we reported that there was a possibility of Ubisoft dropping the Wii U exclusivity of their game ZombiU? It looks like after the various sightings on ratings boards, Ubisoft has officially confirmed the game. Simply dubbed Zombi, the game will now be making its way onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
According to a recent post on Ubisoft’s website, the developer has confirmed that the game will no longer be an exclusive to Nintendo’s Wii U platform, thus leading to it dropping the “U” in its name. Given that the game already exists, we suppose creating a port will take less time than creating a brand new game, which is why come 18th of August, it will start to make its way to gamers on other platforms.
That being said now that the game does not have the Wii U’s GamePad to rely on, Ubisoft admits that the port of the game might be a little different in terms of feel, but they are trying to replicate the experience as best as they can, which is what the game’s producer Hélène Henry was quoted as saying.
According to Henry, “We maintain a minimal HUD as much as possible. It disappears when not required, giving the game a very lonely feeling. If you have surround sound, the awesome sound mix from the original still stands and greatly helps immersion. As much as possible, we’ve tried to keep those key elements.”
There will of course be other changes that Ubisoft will be making to the game, but whether or not these changes are for better or worse remains to be seen, but gamers can find out come 18th August. In the meantime you can watch the game’s trailer in the video above.
