At the same time, the game will also benefit from backward compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. Users playing on current-gen consoles will enjoy 60 frames per second at 4K, with further improvements coming in early 2022.
Consequences will add two new locations to the Ongoing Co-op Campaign. Early players will be able to fight the horde in Rome, with the eventual goal of liberating Vatican City with the Colosseum and other historic monuments featured in the carnage. The second location is the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula, which features snow-capped landscapes and an abandoned, frozen cruise ship.
A first person mode will arrive World War Z with Consequences, allowing players to switch from the original point of view over the shoulder. Players will be removed from first person for melee attacks, but otherwise all of the gameplay can be seen through the character’s eyes.
