The latest update to World War Z has added full PvE cross-play to the game.

World War Z players PC via the Epic Games Store, PS4, and Xbox One can now party up in co-op thanks to the addition of full cross-play in PvE.

Cross-play was previously only available in PvE matchmaking across Xbox One and PC.

Alongside of cross-play comes a new playable class in the Dronemaster update, and it’s the first new class to be introduced since the game launched last year.

The Dronemaster comes with its own personal drone which stuns zombies when they get too close. You will be able to customize your drone in the perk tree and increase its offensive capabilities or raise its defensive powers for team support.

In addition, the update includes a new rare weapon pick-up with its own upgrade tree: the ACW-20. This is a low-caliber, semi-automatic grenade launcher perfect for “tightly packed groups,” but it will also damage other, so beware of friendly fire. There’s also a variety of new weapon upgrades, perk rebalancing, fixes and quality-of-life improvements. You can look over the full patch notes through here.

Finally, the latest premium DLC, the Signature Weapons Pack, is also available today. It includes four weapon skins for the game’s main characters. This DLC is free for Season Pass and GOTY Edition owners.

It is also available for standalone purchase on PS4 and Xbox One.

World War Z is also coming to Switch, with a release date to be announced.
