Several days ago, the video game developer Saber Interactive revealed that fans of the third-person co-op zombie shooter World War Z would be receiving free DLC in the form of a brand new Tokyo mission and monster at some point in May 2019. Now, the studio has decided to provide players with a better idea of what plans it has for even more post-launch content by sharing a look at WWZ's free DLC roadmap for Season One.
In addition to the aforementioned Tokyo mission and zombie type coming in May 2019 to World War Z, the game will get a new six-skull difficulty setting with "a unique reward", as well as bonus cosmetics and more in June 2019. Later on in July of this year, WWZ survivors will be able to take on the new Weekly Challenge mode, and will be able to acquire additional cosmetics along with "other goodies".
What's more is that Saber Interactive has new weapons planned, along with other major upgrades in development for further free updates in the future that include a wave-based survival mode, the ability to switch classes during PvPvZ matches, field of view (FOV) and level of detail sliders on PC, and more. In addition to these features, the developer also plans on adding the ability to host private lobbies in World War Z at some point down the line.
While the details found within World War Z's free DLC roadmap for Season One will likely excite many fans of the third-person co-op shooter, a certain set of players are still waiting on some much-needed fixes for the game. Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive recently rolled out a patch for World War Z's PS4 version that managed to fix some of the game’s most urgent issues on the console, but PC and Xbox One fans have yet to receive an update addressing some of the more pressing problems on their preferred platforms.
