This completely free update also excitingly adds a new special zombie called the Infector. If survivor characters get the Infector's saliva on them, they must clean it off or else they'll quickly turn into a zombie. If that wasn't scary enough, the Infector must be finished off with a melee killing blow, or it will reanimate at full health.

The general level-by-level gameplay of World War Z should sound instantly familiar to anyone that's played Left 4 Dead, or any of the other variations of that style of game. You and three other players (online only) hop into a level of a campaign and then progress through the level shooting zombies until you reach a point where you have to open a door/gate/whatever by finding/opening/turning on/manipulating two/three/five doodads while fighting off more zombies. There will be weapons and ammo to gather along the way, along with medical supplies to restore your health or a teammate's. You'll also encounter special zombies, like the "Bull" or the "Gasbag," that have special attacks or effects (the Gasbag leaves a poison cloud where it dies, and the Screecher attracts groups of zombies), to change things up a little bit. Eventually, you may have to defend one point against a big horde of zombies. Rinse and repeat until you clear the level, and then do some very similar things in the next level.

I encourage you to take in the launch trailer first, as it will prepare your taste buds for all the zombie shootin' co-op mayhem to come.  In it, we get a brief glimpse of our heroes' globetrotting quest to fire every weapon imaginable at a truly absurd number of undead.  I'm assuming they have other objectives as well, such as protecting the remnants of humanity, but all the zombie slaying is, at the very least, a welcome byproduct.

The game's four player online co-op is meant to be enjoyed throughout its story campaign.  In it, survivors of the post-apocalypse must complete a series of objectives by utilizing their various specialties and equipment.  All sorts of different "builds" are available, ranging from medical expertise to heavy weaponry, so a coordinated squad can ensure no undead horde is insurmountable.  To get a nice, lengthy look at how all this translates into gameplay, check out the latest trailer:
