Gaming website NowGamer has managed to get some new details about the upcoming zombie title on Wii U, ZombiU.
Playing the title at Gamescom 2012, it has been confirmed that the game is super hard. The game actually wants you to die a couple of times so that you can be battle-ready with the sufficient knowledge to survive an area. Sometimes it’s also important to loot an area to acquire necessary items that will help you clear the next, more tougher, area.
Nicolai Bouchai, Ubisoft Monpellier’s international product manager commented on the difficulty:
We really want to target and challenge the gamers with ZombiU because this game is very hard.
So for example when you finish the game you will unlock a new mode called Survival Mode. You will have to finish the game with only one life and only one character.
The game also features the ability to leave messages and hints for other players in the game. This and the difficulty level seem to have derived right from the pages of Dark Souls.
The developers are recommending to play the game in groups when it’s launched on the Wii U. It’s yet to be seen if this effort will succeed or will just put players off.
