Zombie Army Trilogy is survival horror third person shooter developed and published by Rebellion Developments.
It released as a spin-off of the Sniper Elite series. The bundle includes remastered editions of the first two expansion-packs for Sniper Elite V2 (Nazi Zombie Army and Nazi Zombie Army 2) and the final, third expansion only available in the bundle.
Both expansions released as just Zombie Army in Germany due to the German government's censorship of Nazi-related symbols.
The game takes place in an alternate timeline and spans four months, May-August 1945.
While enemy fire bombards Berlin, Hitler hides in his bunker. When an officer urges the Führer to surrender, Hitler-- unwilling to accept defeat-- shoots the officer and orders the execution of "Plan Z" to resurrect dead soldiers as zombies via occult rituals.
However, Hitler's plan backfires: the occult relic Hitler believed would protect him fails, and Germany is overrun.
As zombies tear through Europe, a group of resistance fighters (known as the Survivor Brigade) band together to stop the Nazi Zombie Army, end the apocalypse, and save humanity.

Zombie Army Trilogy is based on Sniper Elite V2's overall gameplay. However the stealth focus is gone, in favor of a more traditional action third person shooter, with some arcade gameplay elements, the scoring system for kills is expanded on, as each players kills and points are tallied, as players compete for newly added is the combo system, successive kills will grant a score multiplier. Despite working together, players compete for highest score, highest combo, longest shot and most revives.
The trademark ballistics and X-Ray killcam for sniper fire returns, however it happens much less frequently in co-op mode. Also, the zombies insides, appear to be green and brown, possibly symbolizing them rotting.
Traps return, and can now be used in conjunction with explosive barrels, to set off massive chain reaction explosions, that can devastate swarms of enemies
A new kick attack was added, allowing players to stun enemies, gain some breathing room or kill floored or weak enemies.
Loadouts can be customized before each chapter. However the mission will never start with full ammo.
None of the playable characters, speak, and thus choosing different characters, doesn't function in any way other than which characters appear in the cutscenes.
