22 July 2020
Play the hit co-op shooter with your friends wherever they are on PlayStation®4, Xbox One & PC

Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have announced that the Dronemaster update is available to download for free today in World War Z, the best-selling co-op shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. This latest update introduces full* PvE crossplay support across PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store, letting you party up in co-op with friends no matter what platform they’re on. Watch the Dronemaster Update Trailer now to see the fresh new content you can enjoy today.

The new, versatile Dronemaster class

World War Z has also released its first new playable class since it launched last year: the Dronemaster. This highly versatile character comes with its own personal drone which stuns zombies when they get too close for comfort. You can customize your drone in the perk tree to suit your play style and squad comp: increase its offensive capabilities to make it more lethal in an assault, or raise its defensive powers to better support your team.

A new mini grenade launcher with its full upgrade tree

In addition, today’s update features a new rare weapon pick-up with its own upgrade tree for your armory: the ACW-20. This low-caliber, semi-automatic grenade launcher is perfect for mopping up tightly packed groups, but watch out for friendly fire! There’s also a variety of new weapon upgrades, perk rebalancing, fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

The last Weapon Skin pack included in the GOTY Edition

Finally, players can grab World War Z’s latest premium DLC today: the “Signature Weapons Pack,” which includes four unique weapon skins for the game’s main characters. This DLC is free for Season Pass and GOTY Edition owners. It is also available for standalone purchase on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.
