World War Z: Aftermath’s “Valley of the Zeke” Swarms onto PC, PlayStation & Xbox December 5

Battle through the heart of Arizona in an all-new campaign episode featuring three new maps, four new characters and new zombie threats!

Saber Interactive is excited to reveal the next major content installment for World War Z: Aftermath, the ultimate co-op zombie shooter inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film. Arriving Dec. 5, 2023, on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, “Valley of the Zeke” will introduce the first new premium campaign episode for Aftermath since it debuted in 2021, set in Arizona and featuring three brand-new maps and four new playable survivors. There will also be new premium character and weapon skins, as well as a free update for all players featuring new zombie varieties, the new Desert Eagle weapon, and additional surprises for challenge mode.

Available on December 5 for $9.99*, the “Valley of the Zeke” campaign episode features three new maps that will take players to Arizona with a new story set in the heart of the American Southwest. Play as four new characters and lead a convoy of survivors to salvation through the desert and humanity’s fallen urban strongholds.

New premium character and weapon skin packs are also coming on December 5 just in time for “Valley of the Zeke.” Players will be able to grab the “Pre-Apocalypse Character Skins Pack” and the “Burning Skulls Weapons Skin Pack” for $4.99 each*.

“Valley of the Zeke” will also deliver a free update for all owners of the original World War Z and World War Z: Aftermath on December 5 featuring even more heart-pumping action and gameplay, including:

  • New zombie enemy types that will appear in all episodes, including the Juggernaut, a special zombie unit that can dish out the pain while charging down your line, as well as new military zombies with combat armor for an even greater challenge.
  • The new Desert Eagle secondary weapon, a large-caliber pistol that packs tremendous stopping power when you need it most.
  • A new set of exciting mutators for Challenge Mode and Challenge Horde Mode. Equip all auto-turrets with explosive ammo (but with reduced lifespan), embrace the Wild West theme by forcing everyone to use repeating rifles and revolvers, and more!
  • The addition of the recently released Rome XL map to Challenge Horde Mode (available only for Aftermath on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S).

Powered by the next generation of Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, World War Z: Aftermath lets you play on your own with AI squadmates or in co-op for up to four players with full crossplay between PC and consoles. Take on hordes of ravenous zombies with all content from World War Z: Game of the Year Edition, featuring full episodes in New York, Moscow, Jerusalem, Tokyo, Marseille, Rome (including Vatican City), the Kamchatka peninsula, and coming soon, Arizona! Experience the heart-pounding immersion of Aftermath’s optional first-person mode, decimate the undead with a new melee system, and level up eight unique classes with distinct play styles and customizable loadouts.

“Valley of the Zeke” debuts Dec. 5, 2023, on PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. For the latest World War Z news, visit, and follow the series on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
