    Details:
    LOS ANGELES — June 4, 2012 — Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft challenged gamers to find out how long they can survive in the dilapidated, infected world of ZombiU – a new survival-horror shooter that will be released exclusively for Nintendo’s Wii UTM. ZombiU headlines a group of eight titles from Ubisoft that will be available for the Nintendo Wii UTM.

    Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio behind critically acclaimed titles like From DustTM, Beyond Good & Evil® and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter®, ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter takes all the terror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements, including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.

    ZombiU showcases the innovative features of the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad and creates new game experiences not possible on other consoles. The Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad serves as the player’s ultimate survival kit, called the “Bug Out Bag.” The Bug Out Bag is a backpack containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can scavenge from the limited resources available in the devastated cityscape. ZombiU also uses the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad’s touch screen, gyroscope and camera to create a tactile connection between gamers and the in-game world. Finally, ZombiU features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the role of “Zombie Master,” spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in first-person shooter view with the Nintendo Wii UTM Pro controller.

    “ZombiU is a dark and daunting game that gamers will love to play again and again,” said Guillaume Brunier, producer at Ubisoft. “ZombiU takes advantage of the Nintendo Wii U’s one-of-a-kind capabilities and will be a launch title that every gamer will want to sink their teeth into.”

    For more information on ZombiU, please visit the official ZombiU website (www.zombiu.com) and facebook.com/zombiugame

    ZombiU also can be pre-ordered at UBIShop® by visiting: www.ubishop.com/zombiu
    I really like the looks of it, it's a true survival horror game rather then a action game and IMO a breath of fresh air in concept. I posted the gameplay footage because some may be interested in Wii U can do graphically though don't go expecting much from Nintendo or Ubisoft. I say their adequate for what the developers are trying to convey, it's close to Left 4 Dead only you play as a man alone....

    From the early trailers, I thought this would be 'on rails', like House of the Dead.

    Good to see it's more of a mix between Left 4 Dead and that zombie mod for Arma.

    Impressions from multiple sites say this is the best thing they've seen thus far for Wii U, which is kind of surprising!

    Just read a few things about this - Looks very interesting!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Cool video over at ign showing how you have to kill your previous character to get your loot back.
    Nice feature.

    And what a difference! to some eyes it will look the same but compare this to the ten minute developer footage from E3 and there's significent improvements, it makes one wonder why they went to E3 with what they did.
    It reminds me of the best of the found footage zombie films and it's the first real survival horror in years on anything.

    One creepy looking game that my chicken shit ass won't be playing. Looks like the Wii U has one hell of a zombie title in their corner.

    Okay this game's set in London. So just how badly are we going to screw up the Olympics for this to happen?

    This game is looking fantastic! Hopefully it will provide a better zombie survival experience than RE6, which has seemingly disappointed a lot of people.

    Wow... I may just have to buy that console for this game alone.

    This game is AWESOME!

    It's finally nice to see a game nail it's creepy atmosphere while putting survival horror back in the limelight. If you enjoyed the early Resident Evil games, you're sure to enjoy this.

    The gamepad is used in pretty cool ways; when you use your backpack, the game continues on on the background much like Dark Souls, so you have to be wary of zombies shambling up. The voices coming through the speaker on the gamepad is a nice touch too, really draws you in.

    Highly recommended overall. I think some of those reviews were expecting another Left 4 Dead, which is great in it's own right, but that's definitely not the gameplay experience you'll get with ZombiU.
