It's the king of zombies versus the survivor. GamePad Vs Wii Remote and Nunchuk. ONM's Tom East Vs Joe Skrebels. Yes, following on from our Chasing Aurora multiplayer video yesterday, we're showing off ZombiU's excellent multiplayer mode.
In this mode, one player can choose to play as the king of zombies on the GamePad while the other - using the Wii U Pro Controller or Nunchuk and Wii Remote - takes on the role of the survivor who is attempting to capture the flags and stay alive against on onslaught of zombies.
The player on the GamePad can touch a zombie to select him and then place him anywhere on the map apart from in the red zones which are close to the survivor. You have a limited number of zombies that you can place at a time and if you use them all up, you have to wait for more to become available. You begin with a choice of three zombies but you can upgrade later on, selecting zombies who can sprint or spit at the survivor. In the video, ONM Staff Writer Joe Skrebels plays as the survivor while Tom (that's me!) plays as the king of zombies. Take a look and let us know what you think of this multiplayer mode.
