World War Z is coming to Switch, and a Game of the Year Edition has been announced for current platforms.

Switch owners will be able to jump into World War Z like their PC, PS4 and Xbox One brethren. It is currently in development for the console and is without a release date, via IGN.

In a separate press release issued today, Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive announced a Game of the Year Edition for PC on the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will run you $49.99 or the regional equivalent.

It will include all DLC as well as a new PvE episode in Marseille. Images of the content are posted below.

  • New Episode -  Three new PvE missions in the French city of Marseille with its own maps, story, and characters.
  • Weapon Packs - The Lobo Weapon Pack, Biohazard Weapon Pack, Special Operations Forces Weapon Pack, new Last Aid Weapon Pack, plus one new upcoming weapon pack.
  • Characters Packs - The Professionals Character Skin Pack and War Heroes Character Skin Pack.
