World War Z: Aftermath is the extended edition of the 2019 World War Z game, released for eighth and ninth generation consoles. The game adds new locations, weapons and technical improvements to the core game. It was developed by the Saber Interactive studio.
Similarly to the original, the plot of Aftermath is quite pretextual and serves mainly as a background for the gameplay. We take control over several groups of survivors who try to survive during the zombie apocalypse. The campaign is divided into several chapters, each of them presenting a different scenario. The game world is based on the 2013 film World War Z.
Aftermath gameplay is based on the gameplay of the original game, although it is much more expansive. The game is a shooter focused on co-op and PvE skirmishes. The player chooses one of the available character classes with different skills, completes missions, gains experience and fights hordes of undead. The most unique element of the game are the mass amounts of zombies that we will have to face. Unlike other shooters of this type, the player can build barricades and fortifications to defend against enemies.
Aftermath adds two new locations to the game - Kamchatka and Rome. It also features a new character class, the Vanguard, who can blast through hordes of enemies using an electrified shield. The game overhauls melee combat and adds new weapons, cosmetic items and enemy types to the game. The biggest change is the ability to switch between first and third person view.
World War Z: Aftermath includes a co-op campaign made up of several separate scenarios, in which up to four players can take part. There is also the option to play it solo, with three companions controlled by the computer. The game also features several competitive multiplayer modes, in which two teams fight each other while defending against hordes of zombies attacking everyone without exception.
The PC and ninth-generation console versions also feature an exclusive extra mode called Horde XL, in which several players face off against giant groups of the undead.
The biggest technical improvements can be seen in the PC and ninth-generation console versions. On these platforms, the game runs at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. There is also cross-play functionality included.
