ZombiU’s gore-ious multiplayer gameplay

Check out this trailer showcasing some of ZombiU’s radical new multiplayer gameplay.

So the Wii U has been out for a couple weeks now, and so has the breakout zombie apocalypse game ZombiU. The game’s creative use of the Wii U’s GamePad makes it stand out in the survival-horror genre, and this new trailer shows off some of its new multiplayer features.

ZombiU‘s single player gameplay is pretty revolutionary in itself, but that didn’t stop developers from making the multiplayer modes just as crazy. To give players a unique multiplayer experience, the team behind ZombiU embraced the concept of asymmetrical gameplay, and rather than having players compete in the same game, they’ve devised a way for them to interact through two completely different games.

Basically, while one player blasts his way through the undead horde on the TV, the second player uses the touchscreen GamePad to strategically populate the map with more zombies in an effort to overrun the other player.
