Today, Modus Games has announced that it's partnering with a pretty interesting PC project, expanding the game's platforms to include a console release. 'Projekt Z' has been in the works at developer 314 Arts for quite a while, and we're pleased to see that this spooky FPS is now coming to Xbox!
From what we can tell, Projekt Z looks like a scarier take on the Zombie Army formula, also reminding us of Left 4 Dead with its first person perspective. Basically, you and your crew of survivors are tasked with uncovering the secrets of a "remote Nazi-controlled Island", across a variety of different game modes. Here's a bit of what you can expect from Projekt Z at launch:
Build and customize your hideout, craft and upgrade weapons, recruit allies, select your missions based on your character's story arc, solve sporadic puzzles, find hidden loot, and fight hordes of undead across multiple modes.
Okay, so, shooting Nazi zombies in a WW2-era FPS probably isn't the most original concept, but it's looking pretty good so far and we're intrigued by what the team will be able to create without the shackles of last-gen consoles in mind.
Prior to the Modus Games partnership, 314 Arts regularly updated followers via the game's Steam page, so that's worth keeping tabs on for future updates! At present Projekt Z doesn't have a release date, but given the game was first revealed back in August 2020, we'd expect this one to launch on Xbox Series X|S in the near future.
