You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for a fresh new open world zombie role-playing game to keep you occupied because I have the perfect title for you. Oh, and Will Smith happens to be in it.
New Frontier for Will Smith
Will Smith, the iconic and versatile actor, has graced screens worldwide for over three decades. With his magnetic charisma and undeniable talent, Smith has become a household name, seamlessly transitioning between genres and captivating audiences with each performance.
This unexpected move promises to bring his larger-than-life presence to a whole new audience, solidifying his status as a true entertainment powerhouse. Will Smith’s foray into gaming is set to redefine the boundaries of storytelling and elevate the gaming experience to new heights.
The Rise of Open World RPGs
We are aware that a TLOU multiplayer game is in development, but so far we have only seen a few pieces of concept art. Naughty Dog did state that going forward, they wouldn’t reveal projects until they were almost done.
There is optimism because The Last of Us’ 10th anniversary is on June 14. Despite its recent resurgence, the Days Gone series also doesn’t provide a zombie fix because a sequel is still unlikely. In light of both of those factors, you might want to check out Undawn, which debuts on June 15.
Undawn is an upcoming free-to-play open-world survival role-playing game from creator Lightspeed Studios. It will launch on mobile and PC on June 15 and pre-registrations are already open.
It’s brave of them to use the term “infected” when The Last of Us is perhaps bigger than ever right now, but unfortunately, here we are. The synopsis reads, “Embark on an adventure with other survivors four years after a worldwide disaster where hordes of infected roam a shattered world.”
Unleasing Will Smith’s Charisma
As previously noted, Will Smith plays ‘famous survivor’ Trey Jones in the game, who will serve as a mentor for gamers. Humans in this universe have divided into various groups. In a battle for territory and resources, players who are a part of the Raven Squad will square off against members of the Clowns, Eagles, Night Owls, and Reivers.
Players will need to “brave rain, heat, snow, and storms while monitoring their character’s health and well-being to stay alive against overwhelming odds.”
In addition to fending off enemies, you’ll get the chance to “explore an expansive open world filled with diverse environments such as plains, mines, deserts, swamps, and abandoned cities, each with unique ecosystems and dangers.” Undawn sounds like a promising game, so it’s a bummer that consoles won’t be getting it.
