World War Z is a new co-op zombie title based on the hit book and movie, and in the absence of Left 4 Dead 3 it’s probably your best bet for some four-player zombie-killing action in a similar style. It’s out today on PC and consoles, so if you’re interested in playing the game on PC you’ll need to know the full World War Z system requirements. We’ve got the full list below, along with the most important question: where can you actually play it, Steam or Epic?

World War Z System Requirements

If you want to play World War Z right now on PC, you’ve only got one choice: you have to play it through the Epic Games Store, as there’s an exclusivity deal in place. In fact, World War Z was one of the first games to sign up as an exclusive to Epic’s client. It may certainly go to Steam later on, maybe after a year’s exclusivity like Metro Exodus or Phoenix Point, but at the moment anyone who wants World War Z on PC has to go through Epic.
