Vaporware

5 years from now, people will likely still be wondering when this game will get released. Just like every other FFA Sandbox game, this will promis the moon and either deliver nothing or something so bad that no one will want anything to do with it. No publisher that wants to make money will get behind a fame like this, because games like this just don't sell as MMOs.

    With the popularity of DayZ, this might change.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    It's also server based with a limit of 250 players. It's using years old technology so it should be pretty easy to get out on the streets. Whether it'll be worth a crap remains to be seen. My clan has a modified Dayz server with tanks and A-10 Warthogs. I couldn't be happier.

    That's cool, if you enjoy a mod of an engine that has a mllion bugs and exploits.  

     

    Ignoring a potentially good game because it could be your favored games competition is, well, ignorant.

    Apparently "vaporware" just sent me an email with the closed beta date. Plus another closed beta date a few weeks earlier which you can get into if you pre-purchase at one of two price points.

     

    If you are having trouble viewing this email, please click here.
    With more than 1 million players registered for the closed beta, the wait is nearly over and anxious survivors will soon be able to face the zombie hordes and other players as they explore “Colorado,” the first world in The War Z (TWZ).   Arktos Entertainment Group and Hammerpoint Interactive today announced that the closed beta for TWZ will begin on October 31, 2012, with two early purchase packages that will see players accessing the online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game as soon as October 15.
