Horn [$1.99] creator Phosphor Games is working on a World War Z movie tie-in game, IGN reports on its mobile blog. It's scheduled to hit mobile devices this May 30. Details on this one are few and far between, but the teaser trailer IGN secured does shed some light on what this thing will be packing. Notably, it'll have zombies. Also, helicopters. And human arms. And crowbars. Here's the trailer:

Bad movie tie-in games (and even worse zombie games for that matter) are incredibly common on the App Store, so it's probably very wise to keep your expectations in check on this one. Don't get us wrong, it'd be neat to if Phosphor can pull this off, but it seems like time and money are always short on these sorts of projects especially given the typical scope of mobile games and the relatively low development budgets that App Store price points even allow.

Fingers cautiously optimistically crossed!

    Surprised its not Lameloft

  • Dueler

    Looks decent, will watch this one.

    • SmackDatButt

      Yeah, trailer looks very nice indeed 🙂

    I trust Phosphor, would be skeptical otherwise... I enjoyed Horn quite a bit and Dark Meadow was really good too... Initially at least I haven't played it much since they added the elevator bit.

      That's... deep, man,

    All those tiny humans look like ants! Hope this is good!

  • flashbackflip

    Eh.. Sick of zombies already.. Never liked them. Seems to me that all this zombie hype is made to provide background for possible major governmental action: they will add some bad-trippy stuff in national water circulation systems and ppl will kill each other thinking the others are zombies.. Noone will b surprised as most of americans already believe in these stupid fake 'living dead'

    Shitty theme in general.. Including any movie as well as this game

      You're thinking of werewolves. Zombies are f'n made up, man.

    "Notably, it'll have zombies. Also, helicopters. And human arms. And crowbars."

    You forgot to add lens flares.

    I understand the doubt, but I'm still excited and here's why. Not only is it being made by a legit company, not EA or Gameloft or someone else notorious for money-grubbing, it's coming out before the movie. If people play this game and don't like it, I think that could legitimately hurt their ticket sales (even with Brad Pitt *gasp!*), which they're not going to jeopardize.

    Also, to the point that the "zombies" thing has been overdone: World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide were largely responsible for bringing the zombie genre back to life (sorry...), so I have much less of a problem with this than if a new zombie thing was getting this hype.

    Whatever, I'm excited. Hopefully not in vain...

    It'll be nice to see how they handle doing a game that isn't an Infinity Blade clone. Unless this is a Zombie FPS Infinity Blade clone, to which I say, "please, no".

    In all seriousness, shit looks TIGGGGGHHHHT!

  • Game.PN

    Needs Sandbox and Free roam

  • Lazy_Ekans

    Phosphor seems to put a lot of heart into their games, but Horn was very grindy and, from what I hear, so was Dark Meadow. If this game is more linear, I think it will force them out of their comfort zone and hopefully result in a good product.

    I don't mind zombies as much as some people seem to, but, then again, I try not be bothered by people trying to make money. It seems like a premise that can still be done better, but a lot of people don't handle it well.

  • Drummerboycroy

    Oh great, Phosphor. Everyone get your wallets out... And keep them out. Woo hoo.
