It's been more than a little while since we heard about the upcoming World War Z video game from Saber Interactive, but earlier today the studio finally revealed the game's release date alongside a new trailer showing off a bit of what you can expect from the gameplay. As we previously reported when the game was originally announced, this is a third-person shooter featuring four-player cooperative play set in the same world as film adaptation from Paramount Pictures.

World War Z is all about going up against swarms of fast-moving zombies with all the firepower you can get your hands on. Featuring maps set in New York, Moscow, and Jerusalem, each area features its own group of survivors with their own story and objectives.

There are six classes in total for you to build a team with: Gunslinger, Hellraiser, Slasher, Medic, Fixer, and Exterminator. The game will allow you to combine the strengths of each class within your team to survive on maps featuring procedural enemy and item spawns, with the ultimate goal of giving the players a highly replayable experience.

World War Z will arrive on April 26th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via the Epic Games Store).
