Rebellion's Sniper Elite spin-off series, Zombie Army, released its fourth installment in February 2020. Since then, the development studio has regularly delivered updates that expand the lore and mechanics of the third-person shooter game killing zombies, Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Now the game has woken up to a new nightmare and assault in Season 3.
As Rebellion did with previous seasons in Zombie Army 4: Dead War, there is a mix of free and premium content available to kick off the game's newest chapter.
The free content includes an all-new Nightmare mode for one or two players, where they take on the game's campaign and face what Rebellion calls "the ultimate test." Nightmare mode is unlocked after completing the main campaign mode and is available as part of the base game.
“A new horde mode map, new voice selection feature, and quality of life improvements” are also part of the free package. These quality of life improvements include, according to Rebellion, rebalancing some of the game's maps, including Zombie Zoo and Rotten Coast.
As far as paid content goes, Season 3 is very similar to previous seasons of Zombie Army 4: Dead War and includes a new campaign level called Terminal Terror. This level is the first of three campaign missions that will complete the season. It's available as a standalone purchase for $6,99 or as part of the Season 3 Pass, which costs $34,99.
In addition to Terminal Terror, other additions include:
- Undercover Marie Outfit
- Zombie Headgear Pack
- Lot of MI934 pistols
- Elemental Weapon Skins
- Zombie Charm Pack
Again, like content from previous seasons, like that of Seasons 1 and 2, all of this is included in the Season 3 Pass or can be purchased as individual DLC packs for prices ranging from $2,99 to 3,99, $XNUMX each.
Rebellion also gave fans a glimpse of what to expect from the rest of Season 3, though unfortunately they didn't get too deep into the nitty-gritty. The roadmap states that there will be a total of three campaign missions released in Season 3, along with "5 character skin packs, 5 weapon bundles, 5 weapon skin packs, 4 headgear packs, [and] 4 charm packs. »
Zombie Army 4: Dead War recently received next-gen upgrades for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. The game now runs at 4K 60fps (DRS compatible quality mode) on PS5 and XSX, and 1080p 120fps on the latter.
We enjoyed our time with Zombie Army 4: Dead War when we reviewed it last year, calling it a "solid mix of Sniper Elite and Left-4-Dead style gameplay." It's available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and Google Stadia.
