"You've seen the Tower of London gameplay footage by now, so you know you're going to have to breach the Traitor's Gate and penetrate the depths of the Bloody Tower to find the Raven of Dee's Secret Bunker, but you've never heard of St. George's Yard," said Shrager.
Within these arenas, players may take part in a Capture the Flag variation that puts one player in the traditional role of a survivor while the other chooses zombie placement with the Wii U GamePad.
He adds, "St George's is our hell within hell. Survivors here are unwilling participants in a twisted game in which they are thrown to the infected. Our multiplayer arenas are a spin-off of this mission in the campaign."
Until recently, Ubisoft has focused on showcasing the game's single-player component, while highlighting its permanent death feature. Latinos Post had the opportunity to give the game a test run at New York Comic-Con 2012, and walked away impressed by the attention to detail put into the demo. The environments are thick with ambiance and tension runs high because the game rightfully attributes consequences to death, bucking a trend of infinite respawns prevalent in the current generation of consoles.
The Wii U will release on November 18 using a multi-tiered pricing system. The Basic version is white and has 8GB of memory, a sensor bar, an adapter, and a HDMI cable. The Deluxe version is black and has 32GB of memory, comes bundled with Nintendo Land, a Gamepad charging cradle and stands for the console and controller.
