ZombieU is an hardcore game, kinda like Dark Souls in difficulty – Ubisoft

"If you play like in Call Of Duty, you will die."

Posted By | On 20th, Sep. 2012

ZombieU might be the Dark Souls of, errr… zombie games, it seems as Ubisoft has mentioned that you need to play very cautiously as it is a pretty challenging game.

Ammo is not plentiful and you have to carefully preserve them. The Wii U gamepad is also used here in innovative ways to enrich the experience.

“The market is going towards more action games. Call Of Duty is driving the market and everyone is going to Call Of Duty’s market. When we had to work with Nintendo we had two screens to make a new experience,” Ubisoft’s Jean-Phillipe Caro said to ONM.

“When we were making Killer Freaks we discovered that it was not a good place for players to feel the potential of the console and the dual screens because the player needs to look at one screen and go to another screen and this move is not natural.””

“That’s why we decided to go to a slow pace. We thought about this for a long time and the GamePad became of use in the management part. When I’m playing an action game, I can aim and shoot at the TV.

“But each time I have to look for something on my mini-map, to watch on my scanner or to look around me, think, to react and make a plan or make a strategy, I use my GamePad. That’s when we had the idea to make the GamePad our survival kit.”

“If you play like in Call Of Duty, you will die. You will have to learn how to use the GamePad as your survival kit. If you listen carefully to your GamePad, you will succeed because the game is hard.”

What about the zombie mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 then? Oh wait… it’s all different, am I right? But this is good to hear, glad they’re making something that is not dumbed down for the market.
