Like killing Nazi zombies? Of course you do, that’s why they’re such a popular target in video games. You know this, I know this and apparently, developer Rebellion knows this as well. That’s why they’re currently hard at work on Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2. The first game was good fun, so long as you’re a fan of affordable cooperative undead shoot-em-ups.
Nazi Zombie Army 2 will bring with it a brand new campaign, brimming with new enemies and the four-player co-op that made the original so much fun. The developer also teased the possibility of the game coming to other platforms — read on for more.
According to Rebellion founder and CEO Jason Kingsley, “We have to admit, we underestimated the demand for the original game. All of sudden we had console gamers desperate for us to port the game to 360 and PS3, but without a publisher this just wasn’t feasible. We left a lot of Sniper Elite fans disappointed. They didn’t want to hear excuses from us, they just wanted to play it”.
“As an independent, we’re obviously really excited about what we’re hearing from Sony and Microsoft when it comes to self publishing on PS4 and Xbox One. We think the series could be a great fit for them.”
Agreed. Because it looked like a zombiefied spin-off a series I hadn’t played before, I had low expectations for the first game, but I ended up enjoying it quite a bit more than I thought I would. Apparently, seeing the bullet from a stellar rifle shot eviscerate a zombie’s skull in slow motion is pretty fucking satisfying. Thanks to Sony and Microsoft’s allowing of self-publishing on their platforms, it looks like console gamers may be getting the game, too.
