Today, World War Z received its "Thrill of the Kill" update. This update brings in new mutators, weapon perks, and prestige perks.

There are 6 new mutators in all, and these are as follows:

  • Anthrax: Special zombies leave a poisonous cloud upon death which can infect players.
  • Toss a Coin: Receive 10 supplies after killing a special zombie with a melee attack.
  • No Deliveries: All defenses and supplies in the store will be restricted.
  • Banshee: Screamer shouts deal 10% health damage at any distance.
  • Gladiators: The player who kills the most zombies during the wave earns additional resources.
  • Sinusitis: The Infector's spitting distance is doubled, so watch out!

The 9 new weapon perks include things such as damage counters, faster reload speed, melee stamina, and more! There are 4 new prestige perks per class, meaning a total of 32 have been added.

In addition to all this content, the real news coming out from World War Z today is that there's now a 6 hour "lo-fi beats to relax/study to" video on YouTube, meaning you can now do your coursework, or perhaps sleep to, the sounds of the zombie apocalypse happening right outside your door! Isn't that just fantastic? Check out the video below if it sounds like your kind of thing, personally, I think they uploaded this a few days shy of April Fool's Day...

Truly fantastic.

World War Z is available now on Steam for $29.99. It has full controller support and is Steam Deck Verified.
