Saber Interactive has managed to install another demanding game on the Nintendo Switch.
World War Z was a pretty good novel (written by Max Brooks, son of Mel) that turned into a good movie (starring Brad Pitt) and then turned into a semi-decent game. Developed by Saber Interactive, the third-person shooter sees you attempting to survive against hordes of “Zekes” (super fast zombies, basically).
It launched on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in April 2019, and despite poor critical reception, it has proven to be a success, selling nearly two million copies within four weeks of launch. And he spawned a community of dedicated gamers. The game’s online players are particularly engaged, and the developer enabled cross-play for all platforms last summer.
Now, an official date has been announced for when World War Z will finally arrive on Nintendo Switch. The game will arrive on Nintendo’s handheld console on November 2.
It will also be available on Google Stadia this winter, according to game publisher Focus Entertainment, while PS5 and Xbox Series X / S owners will be able to get a free update for the game starting in 2022. Focus Entertainment has released The Switch release date following the announcement of a free World War Z Aftermath update, which contains a new Zombie Booster and new daily challenges for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game.
World War Z developer Saber Interactive will be keen to show off his porting expertise for the Switch, as he did before when working on Switch ports. They were responsible for the Nintendo Switch version of The Witcher 3, which was widely seen as an impressive port because it managed to fit expansive play on more limited hardware without much compromise.
However, wearing World War Z has proven to be even trickier. In an interview with Sirius game, Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch said running the game on Switch was “the hardest thing we’ve had to do.” The team had to use the Swarm Engine, which helps manage the number of enemies on the screen, in an effort to improve frame rates.
On November 2, players will be able to experience how World War Z works on the Nintendo console.
