World War Z Aftermath Features And Changes
In World War Z Aftermath, the story is divided into episodes. These episodes are in turn spread out and put across various different locations throughout the world. These international locations include Marseille, Tokyo, Jerusalem, New York, Moscow, Kamchatka, and Rome. Kamchatka and Rome are the latest editions to the game.
In Rome, you have to fight off zombies and together with your team, you have to figure out a way to take back the Vatican City. In Kamchatka, you along with the characters from the previous episodes have to find a nuclear submarine. But not only that, you have to take the help of Japanese refugees and local survivors to fight off the hordes of zombies. Speaking of which, hordes are now much smarter and behave just like the real crowd does. They will climb walls and each other to reach the player. While chasing they will get stuck in a narrow corridor. Hordes become increasingly more powerful based on the progression of the story and the characters.
Another major update includes a new class which makes the total number of classes reach 8. Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Slasher, Medic, Fixer, Exterminator, Dronemaster, and finally the new one-Vanguard. Each class offers their own unique abilities. One more update is that of cross-progression. You don’t have to now worry about starting anew on a different console. They have also made changes in terms of perspective. Now we can play in first person mode rather than old third person.
