ZombiU Coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One (Minus the U)

Originally a Nintendo Wii U exclusive launch title, first-person survival-horror game ZombiU is rising from the dead on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’ll be available August 18th via digital download only.

Now known as just Zombi for obvious reasons, the permadeath zombie survival game will feature refined gameplay mechanics and enhanced graphics optimized for the higher-end hardware.

Without the Wii U Gamepad the game will no longer offer any of the second screen elements that made it unique, but otherwise will be the same core experience. Of course, Ubisoft probably could incorporate second screen functionality using tablets or even the Vita on PS4, but the extra work to do so wouldn’t be worth it for a port of a three-year-old game.
