As a gamer, you always seek the next challenging and thrilling escape. For example, suppose you're a fan of the original hit World War Z, inspired by Paramount Pictures' blockbuster film and played by over 15 million players. In that case, you might enjoy the newest and even more intense version of the zombie shooter video game with World War Z: Aftermath. This sequel is the ultimate zombie apocalypse game that you can play alongside up to three friends or AI teammates with full cross-play on consoles and PC. 

In Aftermath, there are new locations with brand new story missions, involving tremendous battles in Rome defending Vatican City and joining forces with survivors in Russia's snowbound Kamchatka peninsula to destroy every zombie in your path. However, just because the game is new doesn't mean your player has to be. You can dive into the action as one of the returning cast or a new character with a ferocious close combat system, distinct moves, and dual-wield weapon options like a sickle and cleaver. 

Not only has the game stepped it up, but so have the zombies. The new Horde Mode XL game mode features hundreds more terrifying zombies coming at you with a vengeance and ready for battle. But, the fighting doesn't stop there — you and your teammates will also encounter swarms of flesh-hungry rats prepared to unleash mayhem. 

You can play with a new perspective using Aftermath's First-Person mode, a realistic and heart-racing experience that'll fully immerse you into the game. Additionally, you can customize your weapons with special modifiers or bonus rewards to level up your character. Lastly, choose between eight classes to suit your distinct playstyle, including the Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Slasher, Medic, Fixer, Exterminator, Dronemaster, and all-new Vanguard class. 

With over 5,000 very positive reviews, there's no question you need to experience World War Z: Aftermath, now on sale on PC for $25.99
