World War Z Is Worth Playing On PlayStation Now


This month, Sony added World War Z to the PlayStation Now roster. This is a phenomenal game that I’ve had a great time playing, and I’m here to tell you that it’s worth your monthly subscription cost. The game is set in the cinematic universe, so it’s a bit of a far cry from the books. However, it’s still a brilliantly fun ride, and one that I think everyone should at least try. If you’re paying for PlayStation Now anyway, there’s really no excuse is there?

World War Z is a class-based Pve shooter for the most part. You need to work through missions around the world, solving puzzles and killing the infected as you go. Each mission is meaty and has a few difficulties to master as well. You’re matched with other players really quickly, meaning you’re never left hanging if you’re looking for someone to play with. The frantic pace of the missions is enough, but there’s so much more to enjoy.

The horde mode was a post-launch addition, but it’s one of the most-played game modes. That’s because you can rack up all the experience necessary to upgrade your classes here. You fight an almost endless wave of the dead as they pour into your base. There are defenses to set up, weapons to master, and a good time to be had by all. It’s also not so easy that it feels like you’re getting a free ride for the experience. If you don’t put the effort in, you will all fail.

Finally, there’s an interesting PvPvE mode. You need to take an enemy team down whilst also defending against the hordes of infected around you. This is far from easy, and it’s probably where you’ll experience the most challenge in this game. The more players that try it out, the more there will be to play with and against. It’s a win-win situation.

The game’s weekly challenges are still going, and they keep things fresh. This is what you’ll be doing when you’re in your downtime on the game, and even that can get quite intense. Really, there’s no reason not to play.
