Developer Rebellion has announced that undead shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War will recieve a new-gen upgrade patch this week, bringing a raft of free improvements to the game when played on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

The first of these updates lands today for the PlayStation 5, and includes reduced loading times and a 4K and 60Hz with DRS (dynamic resolution scaling) enabled, meaning the resolution can drop to ensure a smooth image.
