About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'ZombiU' (WiiU) Announced - Features & Screens

by Judy on June 5, 2012 @ 12:10 a.m. PDT

London is falling! ZombiU is built from the ground up to take advantage of the Wii U controller and tests your will to survive in a fear-fueled zombie survival horror first-person shooter. Stock up your Bug-Out Bag with supplies, and make every second count.

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. Resources are in short supply; you never know when you will find more weapons, ammunition, first aid and food.
  • Don't leave home without your BOB. The Wii U controller becomes your Bug-Out Bag, the ultimate 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 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. 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 touch of the Wii U 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 Buckingham Palace contrast with modernity.
