The latest downloadable content addition for Saber Interactive’s cooperative zombie shooter World War Z has arrived for Halloween week! The “Kill It With Fire” update marks the start of game’s Season 2 offerings and brings with it two new missions, a flamethrower weapon, and a prestige mode.

Prestige will enable players who have maxed out their stats to reset them, gaining unique unlockables as they once again level up. These ranks enable players to acquire new special weapon skins, character portraits, and perks.

In addition to the new flamethrower weapon and prestige ranks, an additional mission has been added to both the New York and Moscow campaigns. The first is “Dead in the Water,” in which players must escape after being stranded on New York’s Hudson River. The second is “Resurrection,” which will see players exploring the dark tunnels below Moscow. Other requested features have also been implemented with this update, including new options for private lobby games and the ability to equip cosmetic items in the game’s PvP mode.

If more free content wasn’t enough, the developers have one more treat in store for the community. Now through November 5th, anyone who plays a match of World War Z will unlock a special Halloween trinket. As with previous updates, “Kill It With Fire” is free to anyone who owns the game. Saber has teased even more free content coming before the end of the year, including a Horde mode, PvE crossplay support, and a new type of special zombie.

World War Z is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC exclusively through the Epic Games Store. Stay tuned for more updates on this and other horror games right here on Dead Entertainment.
