It’s been a while since we heard from Undead Labs on the progress of their highly ambitious XBLA zombie thriller, Class3, however it seems that while the game is definitely still alive, it will no longer feature multiplayer co-op on release. New Community Manager Sanya Weathers, dropped the bombshell during a Q&A on the developers new forums stating:
“Since we plan to rapidly build a massively multiplayer online world around the Class3 design foundation, we decided to defer co-op play in Class3. Our hope is to add co-op play to Class3 during the development of Class4, but for now Class3 will be a single-player experience.
We wanted to let you know what the deal was as soon as we knew. While we are extremely happy with the way the game has come together around our core design goals — strategic base building, slick combat, open-world sandbox, survival simulation — we’re of course disappointed we couldn’t get co-op play in for release, so we’ll understand if you are too.”
The folks at Undead Labs have released some behind the scenes footage taken around their office which just happens to contain the first substantial look at their open world zombie survival game, Class3. The footage (taken from the alpha version of the game) shows off the game’s physics at work, as well as the game’s protagonist boarding up windows to help fend off the coming hordes of zombies. For the action junkies out there, don’t worry, he does shoot a few zombies. Additionally we’re providing you with some videos of motion capture done for the game. If you’re a fan of the zombie phenomenon, take a look at the clips after the jump.
While we haven’t had any indication as to when Class 3 will be released, we’re hoping that it makes it onto XBLA in 2012. You can never have enough zombies! Although it may come under a different title before all is said and done, Class3 is an ambitious title that you should definitely keep an eye on.
Undead Labs has announced a new zombie game for Xbox Live Arcade, codenamed Class3. But before gamers collectively shake their heads in disapproval of another zombie shooter, Jeff Strain and his team at Undead Labs are promising a completely new experience, one that focuses on survival, strategy and consequence.
