Zombi U’s plot has been detailed in a new dev diary from Ubisoft. The clip – ‘London: A City of Blood and Fire’ – explains the game’s plot in more detail.

The clip explains some of the locations you’ll visit in the game, as well as the story, which revolves around the Black Prophecy, a cataclysmic event that was foreseen by someone called John Dee 400 years ago. Unfortunately, no one thought about trying to stop it, or did they?

There will be three core characters in the plot, starting with The Prepper. He’s a ex-army survivalist who tries to help you survive by tracking your movements on CCTV and teaching you necessary survival skills.

Then there’s Sandra, who heads up a shadowy society known as the Ravens of Dee. Their goal is to help as many people survive as possible. Doctor Knight is one of the Queen’s aides, and he’s also looking for a way to stop the cataclysm.
