The upcoming World War Z game has gotten a little bit bigger before it even made its debut. Just announced was the addition of a fourth playable map, Tokyo, to go along with the previously-revealed settings of New York, Moscow, and Jerusalem. Like with other maps, this location will feature its own campaign chapters with more to be added in future content updates.

The Tokyo map will ship with two chapters and the developer says a third will arrive shortly after release, which helps illustrate a clear picture of how this game will be supported post-launch. This sounds good to us, so check out a preview of the new map along with some more gameplay in the video above. For a refresher on the title as a whole, read on for more details on what this game is all about.

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, Jerusalem, and Tokyo, 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 16th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via the Epic Games Store). Pre-orders are now available.
