Now that we know Zombie Army 4: Dead War is getting a bunch of post-launch support, can we officially call it an undead-service game? That's the headline today as Rebellion, the developer and publisher of the co-op zombie shooter, has revealed the first season of content coming to the game following its February 4 launch date.

In a new trailer, which you can watch below, Rebellion details the DLC mini-campaign,"Hell Cult," that will be launching into the game for Season Pass 1 holders later this spring. The campaign includes three new missions, once again available in co-op for up to four players.

Additionally, the season pass will grant players access to a quartet of new heroes to customize, nine weapon bundles, including new guns, skins, charms, "and more," five weapon skins packs, and four character skins packs featuring new outfits for different characters. In addition to the paid content, Rebellion also promises free updates to the game's Horde mode.

The game's Super Deluxe Edition includes the full game plus Season Pass 1 for those interested in bundling it all together ahead of launch. It will also be available separately after launch.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War is the sequel to Zombie Army Trilogy, a non-traditional release that bundled two previously PC-exclusive reimaginings of Rebellion's Sniper Elite series with a third new game. The trilogy launched on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2015 but didn't wow critics. Today it has just a 65 average on OpenCritic with only 17% of its 30 critics recommending the game. Its sequel has received strong buzz following a recent media event however, and with the review embargo coming next week ahead of the game's release, we'll know soon how the latest in the series stacks up.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War releases on February 4.
