Our first look at ZombiU's in-game notification?



At first, it may look like that little blurb is an achievement. If you look closer, it seems to indicate some sort action by another character or player. I can't tell if this is online interactions with other players or some other AI-related notification. Thanks to Vinniebrock for the heads up!

UPDATE - We have another look at the messaging system. It appears to be related to in-game content. Still, with the faceless icon that pops up next to the message, I feel like this could be involved in Miiverse activity. Thanks to MazKiller for the heads up!

A closer look makes it appear to not be an achievement blurb. Looks more like a notification for the game to me.

I can barely make out the words, but this is what I got:

""The Zombie of **** has killed Freak **** in Church County."

Asterisk = No idea what it says.

It seems like in-game notification though

It is a notification of a character becoming a zombie or something.

Not an Accomplishment, but that's still cool.

Doubt it's even a system-level notification. Probably a built-in system that Ubisoft made for the game.

No, it's system wide because it needs to use the Miiverse in order to show which of your friends died. It will only show your friends (added to your Miiverse), it can't be game specific because it would show every dead person in the world, and it wouldn't work.

well, maybe it's an application of miiverse, but the popup seems game-specific to me. Just like how baloons with user phrases appear in NSMBU...

it's just a notification thing, not an 'accomplishment'. Besides, that stuff is implemented usually near the end of game development, so I'm not so sure it'd be even in there right now.

I'm excited if they're NOT achievements/trophies/accomplishments. They get on my nerves for some reason. Really excited if it's related to the Miiverse.

I'd really just like to see more of the consoles systems. I would of loved a chance to demo the Miiverse.

So it's kinda like Resident Evil Revelations.

It a notification about friend's activity. We saw it in videos from the last big events, there was sometimes notification of another player dying in another Demo Booth.
I thought everyone had seen it. O_o
