ZombiU is a first-person survival horror video game developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and released by Ubisoft. It was launched for the Wii U. In the game, the player takes control of a human survivor in the midst of a zombie apocalypse in 2012. It has a permadeath system that extensively employs the Wii U GamePad to scan the surroundings and keep the survivor’s stuff. The player has several options for dealing with adversaries, including weapons, land mines, and Molotov cocktails. They have the option of using an unbreakable cricket bat, which deals less damage than other weapons. There are various kinds of zombies, such as those that explode, are armored, or spew caustic fluid. It garnered mostly excellent reviews from critics, who commended the game’s emphasis on survival horror, atmosphere, and the permadeath mechanism.
