The War Z: New Website Launches

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,588MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The official website for the zombie apocalypse MMO, The War Z, is now live. The team behind the game also announced that over 100,000 players have signed up for beta testing in just 24 hours. The War Z is expected to head into beta testing very soon and is likely to be released in late 2012.

The War Z is an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open world infested with zombies. Players are thrust into this post-apocalyptic world five-years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population and left, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Hordes of undead zombies roam the cities, and the few remaining human beings have devolved into a lawless, nomadic society where the sole objective is to survive at any cost. Players must use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other supplies necessary for survival. While navigating the vast landscape, they will discover cities teeming with the undead as well as other players that may or may not be friendly.

Check out the official The War Z site.

    MMO originality at it's best...

    Of course I love the idea, but this game came out of nowhere. I just can't see how this will be any good.

    Maybe that is the way games should be, come out of nowhere so the hype doesn't kill a game.

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

    Some in game footage would be nice, I guess we will have to wait until this beta actually starts.

    Somehow I want to stay loyal to Dayz, but I'll give this a try.

  • coretex666coretex666 PraguePosts: 1,934Member Uncommon

    I like DayZ, so I guess this MMO will be appealing to me. Will definitely give it a try!

    I just hope the game is realistic since at least for me, it is what makes DayZ a great game. I would not be very happy if the game turned out to be Resident Evil online. This type of game seems pretty refreshing after all those fantasy themeparks I have been playing

    Waiting for L2 EU Classic

    yup thats the way todo it. - look at diablo3. final fantasy 14.  best examples to date.

    Playing DayZ a bit this looks 'dead on'- no pun intended.

    Registered for the closed beta and on forums. Seems like a simple game but then again so was DayZ.

    Hopefully better than DayZ. It's okay, but god awfully boring, repetitve, and stressful at times.

  • SilvermachinSilvermachin BerlinPosts: 13Member Uncommon

    Most important info i found on the faq side:

     

    Are zombies fast like in Day Z?

    No, They are described as classical "Slow" zombies and they go from roaming to limping as they try to run.

     

    Yessss....most important thing to get a *dawn of the dead* feeling...:D

  • AlexTaldrenAlexTaldren Washington, DC, MDPosts: 21Member

    I'd love to see the DayZ team and War Z to come together and do it right. Of course, competition between the two could produce good results as well.

    It is a bit odd that they'd have links to a pre-order up when it doesn't appear to work.  At least it directs people to the beta sign-up form.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    The War Z is an interesting concept no doubt taken directly from Day Z, the popular mod for war sim ARMA II: Combined Operations.  I think this style of game is awesome, however it is not an MMO. 

  • BigCountryBigCountry Charlotte, NCPosts: 478Member

    This looks to have the exact same backend/infastructure as DayZ.

     

    Only the front end/graphic engine has changed?

     

    I wonder if Dean is actually behind this game.

    :D

    "Yes, not only that - you'll be able to rent a game server from inside the user interface without leaving the game. You will be able to choose server settings, configure things like public or private, password protection, allocate certain number of slots for your friends and clan members, etc. "

     

    Never seen that done before. That's cool stuff.

  • volttvoltt richmondhill, ONPosts: 269Member

    Like dayz and all this is looking good to and looks like it has some $$ching ching to fund it. I dont think dayz has the resources to keep up with this when it comes out

  • PanteraRosaPanteraRosa Pueblo, COPosts: 34Member Uncommon

    This sold me. Real zombies don't run. PERIOD. If they run, they're not zombies.

    As Fry would say, "Shut up and take my money!"

    Those were infected humans, not zombies. It's a good film, but I don't consider it a zombie flick.

    All these beta testors are going to be surprised how bad this game is.  Stick with Dayz it is a far better game, like light years better.
