ZombiU web comic sets up the plot

Everyone loves bursting a few zombie skulls, but true zombie connoisseurs (ew) prefer to take in the rich flesh-eating fiction. By the time ZombiU starts, the apocalypse has taken place and walking corpses have a run of the place. But what about two weeks before that?

Ubisoft has released a new web comic that details the 14 days just before the game starts. A new "day" of the comic is set to roll out every day for the next two weeks, showing what the world was like just after zombies began their brain-dead assault on humanity.

The game will be available this Sunday, as a launch title for Nintendo's new Wii U system. It uses the Wii U's signature GamePad peripheral as a backpack, flashlight, and corpse scanner. Check out our preview for more details.
