Zombie MMO 'Class3' Raises Visual Standard On XBLA

Undead Labs have released footage of their latest title, codenamed 'Class3', showing off what CryEngine 3 can bring to Xbox Live Arcade games. Despite being in the early development stages, the game is looking rather spectacular for an arcade title.

Class3 is a survival horror game which sees players take on the role of one of the few human survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Unlike most survival horrors that have evolved into the shooting genre however, Class3 is focused on the 'realism' of the situation, favouring the survival aspect rather than an excuse to shoot something.

"This is not going to be a game about running through the streets shooting zombies in the head," studio founder Jeff Strain told Eurogamer in February. "There's going to plenty of that, just because that's fun, but that's not enough for us. The key for us is to capture that zombie survival aspect of the world and really answer that question 'What would I do?'"

Whilst watching the video below, please keep in mind that the footage is from a very early build of the game. It is more of a showcase for what the game will look like when it is finally released sometime next year.
