ZombiU Demo Coming To Wii U eShop

Posted by Andy Green

Expect it before 15th December

Ubisoft has a plenty of Wii U titles available on launch with the likes of ZombiU, Assassin’s Creed III and Rabbids Land to name a few. Rayman Legends unfortunately didn’t make it into the launch line up and is now penned in for an early 2013 release. To alleviate some of the woes, Ubisoft was due to make a demo available on the Wii U eShop for fans to get at least some of their Rayman fix on launch day, though at the time of writing it's yet to arrive.

Despite the mystery of the first demo, It seems that Ubisoft would also like to make a demo for ZombiU available, with one of the game’s developers revealing on Twitter that it should be present before 15th December.

We gave the survival horror title a glowing report in our ZombiU review, but if you’re still on the fence about it, this news of an impending demo will no doubt be zombified music to your ears.

Will you be trying before you buy?

Why would you encourage everyone to buy a game when you know for a fact not everyone will enjoy it.. Are you just a really big fan of the economy and advocate for consumer spending?

@DrSlump black ops 2 was a port being done for the wii u in short time so it could be a launch game.. Just have a look at mario galaxy on wii, it almost looks like an HD game. Now imagine what the wii u can do!

I don't know if this is the sort of game for me, survival horrors have never really been my thing.

But I certainly would like to TRY this, absolutely.

Judging by the disparity of the reviews, a demo could do wonders. I have been planning to get Zombi U if it gets a price drop.

I would also love to hear impressions later on to see if the demo accurately represents the game. Some demos can be misleading.

I don't want to buy it, but would like to try it. We'll see if they earn my money. The reviews are confusing, no one can seem to agree so a demo makes a lot of sense.

Yay! Now I can try it before deciding whether it's worth 60 bones. I still see too many mixed reviews to just drop the cash.
