The lights are on
This latest developer diary for the ZombiU game doesn't just show the game's geographical inspiration – London, but it also explores some of the game's characters and the man who foresaw the zombie apocalypse centuries ago.
The events of ZombiU are fictionalized around the apocalyptic visions of real-life 16th century mathematician, astrologer, and occultist John Dee. In the game, Dee's Black Prophecy appears to have come true, and a stalwart band of survivors are helping the character as they search for the same cure Dee sought centuries ago.
ZombiU is a Wii U launch-day game, and will hit on November 18.

I cant wait for ZombiU this looks so good :D
I think this game will give the "survival horror" people are crying about missing in Resident Evil 6 (biohazrd 6). I am not sure if it is a system seller, but maybe if it reaches enough critical acclaim, it will help. Personally, I think ZombieU, Mario and Lego City undercover are going to do the best out of all the WiiU Launch Titles.
Call of Duty people will probably continue to play them on the system they are comfortable with. I don't know many consumers who exclusively own a wii, so all the recycled games or sequels to existing titles available on other systems seems like a tough sell. Why SHOULD they switch? Give us some reasons, nintendo.... please.
Is anyone else getting tired of the creepy ads with the bearded guys for some shirt company? sorry, off subject, I think this game looks promising but like most nintendo games you can never really tell until it releases. All games are good in theory, but they need to prove themselves.
This is the one Wii U launch title that truly looks next gen.Sorry new super Mario bros U but between the deluxe Wii U I pre ordered and zombi U I will have to wait to pick you up when my wallet recovers.
I've been wondering, can you run out of characters to switch to by dying way to many times? Or is that just a game over and you start over? Or is there a massive random character creator that kicks in after you die?
November 18 just isn't coming soon enough.
I guess I could finish Mass Effect 3 first...
And Transformers Fall of Cybertron.
Day 1 purchase.
Of course hell is just around the corner, if by hell you mean Ubisoft patented over-priced DLC that includes missions that may or may not matter at all.
Game does look great
