Now Free on Epic Games Store, World War Z Supports Cross-Play For Xbox One and PC Players
By Liz Lanier
Co-op zombie game World War Z just expanded its playability with a new update offering cross-platform compatibility between Xbox One and PC players, as announced via the game's official Twitter account.
The game is also available for free on the Epic Games Store until April 2. Players who download by then will be able to keep their digital copy forever.
Not wanting to leave Xbox One players out of the fun or the good deal, the zombie third-person shooter is also available on the console for a reduced price for a limited time. World War Z is available for digital download for 75% until Monday, March 30 for those who have a Xbox Live Gold subscription.
The update also brings improvements to the game's Horde mode, increasing its difficulty through reduced resources, decreased prep time between waves of zombies, and other adjustments according to the official patch notes.
Along with cross-play and horde mode changes, the update also brings some new weapons, a new objective to conquer, and stability improvements. Further improvements and even more content are in the works.
"We already have a ton of future content planned, including a new location, with three new missions and new characters," the developers stated. "We'll have more to share on this topic soon."
