World War Z 1.02 Update Patch Notes
The new World War Z 1.02 update patch notes have now been made available for the community to read and digest. The new World War Z update today is currently rolling out across PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though you may need to exit the game and hit “Check for update” to have it download and install. Once the new World War Z patch has been implemented, players should start to see improvements in the areas of connectivity, as well as a fix for those who were unable to access the new Lobo Bundle DLC.
The highlights of the World War Z 1.02 update are mainly to do with solving connectivity problems, and ensuring that players are able to stick together through the course of the game. The 1.02 update fixes an issue which prevented US players from joining up and slaying zombies with users in other regions.
What’s more, for those who were having trouble accessing the new Lobo Bundle DLC, these problems should now have been solved.
Community manager “Jellyfoosh” has also detailed known issues which the team is “working on sorting out right now.” These include PC problems, such as the game crashing on launch, players being unable to see their friends on their friends list, and progress becoming lost.
Also on the dev’s radar are PS4 and Xbox One issues, which include: progress being lost after a PSN name change, the game sometimes disconnecting at the end of some missions, and some players being unable to progress the “Key to the City” mission after the “Protect Search team” objective.
Other “general” issues that have been acknowledged are: some players being unable to receive weapon XP, and some players who can’t get all the weapons from the pre-order Lobo Pack.

So far I’ve completed New York , and Jerusalem. Just started Moscow. I really enjoy this game it reminds me of a combination of the division 2 and left for dead. The overall intensity and fast paced combat is super fun and always keeps me super involved unlike most zombie games out where you can just turn your brain off. Let me know if you wanna play multiplayer or campaign ! I’m on PS4
World War Z Didn't Have A Great Successful Launch
World War Z launched yesterday, but its first day on the market didn't exactly go smoothly. Players have reported numerous issues such as multiple failed attempts to connect to the game's servers and problems during gameplay that halts progression.
The biggest issue at launch appears to be a lack of servers for players to join, meaning that the game is only playable in an offline state. For an online-focused co-operative title, this is quite clearly a major issue. To developer Saber Interactive's credit though, it looks like the team is trying its best to get more servers up and running to alleviate the problem.
What may take a little more time though are the bugs and glitches that have been brought to light. Personally speaking, we haven't been able to finish the game's first chapter yet because the game freezes and doesn't conclude the level correctly. Other players have reported jittery movement, a "Loading Game Logic" message that crashes the game, and being unable to play with friends in different regions.
Are you playing World War Z? Have you encountered any of these problems? Kill the horde in the comments below.
