A look at ZombiU… before it was ZombiU

Posted on August 12, 2012 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

As many of you know, ZombiU wasn’t always a Wii U game. It actually started out as a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 project with the title “Attack of the Killer Rabbids from Outer Space”.

That was in 2010. In 2011, Ubisoft turned the game into “Killer Freaks from Outer Space” and unveiled its work at E3 2011.

What we saw at this year’s E3 was a surprise to many. Ubisoft, for the most part, “trashed” its previous two projects in favor of making ZombiU for Wii U. Some elements from the “Killer” projects may have been added to ZombiU, but for the most part, it’s a very different game.

You can take a look at a few concept images for both Attack of the Killer Rabbids from Outer Space and Killer Freaks from Outer Space in the gallery above. What’s shown for these two projects is a very, very different approach compared to ZombiU.
