Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft challenged gamers to find out how long they can survive in the dilapidated, infected world of ZombiU – a new survival-horror game that will be released exclusively for Nintendo’s Wii UTM. ZombiU headlines a group of seven titles from Ubisoft that will be available for the Nintendo Wii UTM.
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio behind critically acclaimed titles like From DustTM, Beyond Good & Evil and, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors. This fear-fueled first-person shooter invites takes all the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the horror genre and adds original interactive elements, including a unique death mechanic that puts players in the body of a different survivor each time they die, allowing them to track and take down their old, infected characters, recover their equipment and see if they can stay alive just a little bit longer this time.
ZombiU showcases the innovative features of the Nintendo Wii UTM Controller and creates new game experiences not possible on other consoles. The Nintendo Wii UTM Controller serves as the player’s ultimate survival kit, called the “Bug Out Bag.” The Bug Out Bag is a backpack containing all the maps, tools, weapons and supplies that players can scavenge from the limited resources available in the devastated cityscape. ZombiU also will use the Nintendo Wii UTM Controller’s touch screen, gyroscope and camera to create a tactile connection between gamers and the in-game world. Finally, ZombiU features a distinctive multiplayer adversarial mode that allows one player to take on the role of “Zombie Master,” spawning and controlling enemies from a top-down view on the Nintendo Wii UTM GamePad while the second player fights for survival on the big screen in first-person shooter view with a Wii wireless classic controller.
“ZombiU is a dark and daunting game that gamers will love to play again and again,” said Guillaume Brunier, “ZombiU takes advantage of the Wii U’s one of a kind capabilities and will be a launch title that every gamer will want to sink their teeth into.” producer, Ubisoft.

Could you please post the awsome trailer of zombiU in HD on youtube ?
Can't wait to watch it again in good quality !
ZombiU looks like what Resident Evil 6 should have been, but in fps
Looks great, but what a completely unoriginal name. Its like they aren't even trying, makes me wonder how deep this game really is?
This looks awesome, Ubisoft. Now PLEASE make your Wii U efforts a reality and announce Watch Dogs! It looks incredible already, but I refuse to buy it for any other console but Wii U.
Ubisoft, thank you for making the only game that's got me really excited to get a Wii U. Nintendo owes you guys BIG.
ZombiU trailer was brilliant. Gameplay looked very fun and interesting. The way the WiiU's pad/controller is incorporated is very intelligent. Kind of changed my opinion about it actually, the controller I mean.
I wanted to have a quick go on it but I was so tired, it looked fun, and challenging and like specific methods would really be more successful than others. I thought it was neat how when the character you were playing died, you would see and fight them with your respawn/new character. I don't know what mode I was watching that in.
I liked how the pad would display different images than the TV screen. It was being used as a scanner and a scope at times, very innovative.
On a side note, that Zombie Royal Guard was pretty good at Just Dance!
for the night is dark and full of terrors
