One of the game's writers gives us an insight to his thought process when crafting the narrative for World War Z


Greg Burke caught up with Oliver Hollis-Leick, a game writer on World War Z to chat about what players can expect when the four-player cooperative game releases next year. World War Z is loosely based on the same book that brought us the 2013 film starring Brad Pitt. In the interview below, Hollis-Leick talks about his inspirations when writing a zombie survival game, along what sets this game apart from the iconic titles that came before it. He also gives info about the game being episodic, and how each episode will uniquely vary from one another.
