Code Name ‘Class 3’ Open World Zombie Title Coming To XBLA – Details
Undead Labs based in Seattle, Washington has just announced its to release a zombie survival game currently code named “Class 3”, being published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox Live Arcade. The game is an open world, third person Zombie filled title with many different guns, fast cars, hand-to-hand combat and will even feature local co-op. The game is still in heavy development and the world you play in will supposedly change in real time, with your decisions shaping the game itself. Now that sounds pretty fucking heavy for an Xbox Arcade game so this is obviously not your ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ type of arcade game. Online co-op is being working on but not confirmed yet while local co-op is confirmed but in my opinion the game will have online co-op, but I didn’t say that.
You will choose where you want to make your stand in the game and players will be able to design, customize and fortify these settlements they have chosen, so seal those windows well. Eventually you will be forced to go and venture away from your post to find food, ammunition, as well as rescuing other playable survivors to either strengthen or weaken your team. This is not your ordinary Zombie game as gathering resources such as copper wire, seeds, as well as expert survivors to know what the hell to do with resources, in order to outlast the zombies which can be done according to Undead Labs’ Jeff Strain. Figuring out the cause of the Zombie Apocalypse seems to be the key to concluded the game as long as you can stay in one piece. There is no date at all as far as when this game will be released if it even is because this is one hell of an Arcade Game with no official title yet, just code named ‘Class 3’. It is currently set to be released as an Xbox Live Arcade Game and if I had to guess it would be 1200 Microsoft points. If this game sees the light of day I will be very pleased to play it as it’s something that has not been done before… at least not with zombies.
