Developer Saber Interactive’s enormously popular co-operative zombie shooter World War Z has just received a new update on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, this time adding an explosive new undead variant and a new horde mode.
Both additions arrive as part of World War Z’s so-called Season Two of post-launch content, which has already introduced the likes of new missions and a new weapon. Now, however, players can face off against a new Special Zombie type known as The Bomber, described as the “unfortunate result of a military demolitions expert getting chewed on by a zombie”.
Saber Interactive calls The Bomber a rare encounter, and notes that while it’s extremely volatile, it brings valuable bonus loot for those teams with the skills to defeat it. That first requires precise shots to the “safe zones”, such as its legs, then, once down, players can defuse the timed bombs strapped to its body in order to secure their reward.
