The War Z Aims to Unleash a New Zombie Survival Adventure





Zombies are on their way, and yet again they want your brains! The War Z is a survival horror MMO that will put players into a post-apocalyptic world infested with the undead. The War Z will be available this fall for a mere $30, and registration for its closed beta is now in progress!

The game is in development by Hammerpoint Interactive, which is a brand-new developer. “The major difference is that DayZ is a fantastic mod for a hardcore military simulation game,” stated Hammerpoint Interactive Senior Game Designer Eric Nordin. Nordin added, “We are creating a standalone game, with the entire world designed around a zombie apocalypse, so that players feel completely immersed in that environment."

Features include:

  • Big open worlds to explore between 200 to 400 square kilometers
  • Two modes of play: Normal and Hardcore
  • Combination of first-person and third-person perspectives
  • Meld of PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player)
  • Strong Role Playing Elements
  • Multiple playable characters with customizable features
  • Unique social elements, including bounties, help requests, trap setting, etc.
  • Safe settlements where players can purchase, sell and store items as well as post notes for other players
  • Dozens of unique skills that can be learned and improved
  • Up to 250 players per game server
  • New weapons and items become available as players explore the game world
  • Full developer support with regularly scheduled, free content updates
  • Dedicated public servers as well as private servers that can be completely self-managed in game client
  • Single purchase, downloadable client with ability to play full game without subscriptions or requiring in-game transactions
  • You can visit the official the The War Z website to learn more about the game.

    NEXT STORY

    Blatant attempt to leech off of the name of World War Z using the premise of DayZ. That said, if they pull it off I'll be all over it. It'll be an uphill battle to prove themselves though, first-time developer asking for preorder money with the lure of beta access comes across as dubious and desperate, so I'll wait until I hear some word of mouth.
