Shopping Malls are a staple of zombie storytelling. We're told they represent something about mass consumerism and the zombification of western culture, but for practical purposes they're an arsenal of zombie killing implements. And where Dead Rising popularized the art of crafting weapons from common household items, we want to see ZombiU adapt that concept to one of the largest mall in Europe, aka the Westfield Stratford City.
Spanning nearly 2 million square feet and home to over 300 shops, Westfield Stratford City is a Shangri-La for apocalypse survivors. And while it would be ambitious for Ubisoft to recreate this shopping mecca in full, a run through its main hall, connected theaters, and adjoining hotel could stir up some creative zombie mayhem.
Barring Westfield Stratford City, we'd also take Hamleys, one of the oldest and largest toy shops in the world. Offering seven floors and 54,000 square feet of killing space, we're sure we could find something to defend ourselves with. And if not, at least we'd have a few toys to distract us from our grisly fate.
