World War Z passes 1 million sales in first week


Publisher Focus Home Interactive has revealed that World War Z has passed the one million sales mark in its first week on release.

The co-op zombie-shooter, developed by Saber Interactive and inspired by the eponymous film, also topped the UK physical game sales charts during its first week on sale. Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch said: “Saber is extremely thrilled by the performance of the game on all platforms.  On the PC specifically, we are performing way above expectations thanks to the support we have received from the Epic Games Store. Moving forward, we’ll continue to work on growing the game and its community with new improvements, stability updates and bonus gameplay content, beginning very soon with a special new mission for the Tokyo episode.”

World War Z features a clever zombie-swarm engine, a four-player co-op story campaign that takes in New York, Jerusalem, Moscow and Tokyo and what Saber Interactive calls: “Competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.”

As Karch hinted, Saber Interactive will soon unveil World War Z’s post-launch roadmap of added content. For details of that, keep an eye on the game’s website.
