New ZombiU Trailer Shows Infested Tower of London

    October 12, 2012

Ubisoft has certainly thrown its lot in with Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console. The game publisher has eight different games coming to the new system during its extended launch window, including Assassin’s Creed III, Rabbids Land, and Rayman Legends.

It’s Ubisoft’s Wii U-exclusive title ZombiU, that is the most surprising, though. Nintendo has positioned itself with the Wii as a family-friendly, casual gamer company. To see a gruesome survival horror game as an exclusive launch title means that Nintendo is looking to bring back “hardcore” gamers into its fold.

We’ve already had a good look at the zombie mayhem that awaits in ZombiU, including the trailer from the Wii U announcement and a gameplay walkthrough featuring Buckingham Palace that demonstrates how the Wii U GamePad will be used while playing the game. Today, Ubisoft has released another trailer that demonstrates just how hectic ZombiU can become.

The video, seen below, shows a section of the game where players will cross a zombie-infested Tower Bridge to get to the Tower of London. After that, a daring escape shows that rescue might not be in the cards for the citizens of London.
