Crossplay Comes to 'World War Z' in Season 2 Free Content Drops
World War Z’s post-launch support has really helped keep the co-op zombie shooter at the top of gamers ‘must play’ lists since it launched, and that continues with the reveal of Season 2’s free content road map.
The highlight for me is crossplay, which will open up the ability to play with some friends who have it on different platforms, but I’m not going to turn down a pair of new PvE missions, an all-new wave-based horde mode, a new zombie type, a new weapon, and new cosmetics.

MAPLEWOOD, N.J. – Sept. 19, 2019 – Saber Interactive, in partnership with Focus Home Interactive, has shared a first look at the roadmap for the second season of free content coming to World War Z, the best-selling action-packed co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. Fans can expect a huge variety of new goodies in the coming months, including:
- Two challenging new PvE missions set in Moscow and New York.
- The highly anticipated introduction of a wave-based horde mode – Horde Mode Z.
- A dangerous new zombie type.
- PvE crossplay support.
- The ability to prestige rank up for new weapon skins and perks.
- A fiery new weapon and new cosmetic items.
World War Z’s first season of free content included the Weekly Challenge mode, “The Undead Sea” Tokyo mission, and the six-skulls extreme difficulty setting, as well as several other treats for players.
Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies at a time, able to move and strike as one collective herd, as well as break off as individual attackers. Choose from six distinct classes and an arsenal of deadly weapons, explosives, turrets and traps. Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, including New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.
World War Z is out now digitally and at major retailers on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, plus Windows PC via the Epic Games store. For more information, visit http://wwzgame.com, and follow the game on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WWZGame, Twitter @WWZTheGame, and Instagram @WWZGame.
