“Horde Mode XL follows the same rules as the game’s standard Horde Mode, with a devilish twist — scattered among the normal waves of enemies will be a special XL wave bursting with over 1,000 hungry zombies,” Saber said.

World War Z: Aftermath and World War Z players on all platforms barring Nintendo Switch will also receive a free update on January 24 that adds mutators into the standard Horde Mode Z, as well as new weapons and a revamped weapon progression system.

Saber also said that World War Z has reached over 20 million players across all platforms since its release in 2019.

The studio is also currently working on a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake for PS5 and PC.
