If there’s one feature that World War Z fans have been patiently waiting for, it’s got to be a good ol’ fashioned horde mode. Thankfully, Saber Interactive has delivered the goods as a fully fleshed out horde mode — affectionately dubbed Horde Mode Z — has released for free and is available to download right now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The new horde mode pits players against endless increasingly difficult waves of deadly zombies. You can even earn resources that can be spent on new weapons, upgrades and more. If you’re quick, you can also explore the area after clearing a wave to find free items. Additionally, every wave also has a side objective, which can be cleared to get more resources. Military crates can be found hidden around the maps, too, which grant bonus resources once they’ve been opened with a breaching charge.
Meanwhile, the latest update will also add a new zombie type: The Bomber. Previously an explosives expert, he’s now a very dangerous enemy. Players must avoid setting off its explosives and must do so by targeting its individual limbs. Once The Bomber’s been downed, the team will have to defuse the bomb. Defeating this new zombie will thankfully reward bonus loot.
Here’s the full rundown direct from World War Z’s Creative Director Oliver Hollis-Leick:
