BillMurphyBillMurphy Managing EditorBerea, OHPosts: 2,377MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Confirmed via The War Z's official Facebook page, the game's early beta access will begin at 2:30pm Pacific, 5:30pm Eastern. 

2:30PM PST LAUNCH CONFIRMED !

Check link in your order receipt after 2:30PM PST

Players who have ponied up and pre-ordered the game will be able to begin downloading and playing the post-apocalyptic MMOFPS this afternoon and evening barring any server issues.

EDIT: Remember those server issues we talked about? Yeah, TheWarZ.com's download page is currently down, and hopefully soon it will allow us all to start our downloads and beta-playing. As of 6:05pm EDT, the community team posted this:

3:05PM UPDATE : Final checks are in progress. Still there're some issues with game availability in Oceania and SEA regions.

Head over to www.thewarz.com for more information.

    I'm just curious how they are hosting the client files. If anyone is hosting a mirror or seeding a torrent. Post it here!

    This game looks like is going to have a long on-going development cycle. A lot of the game is sandbox in nature and is going to rely a lot on the players and communities for creating the "atmosphere" of the game.

     

    Warfighter looks like its going to be a really good game, (Hitman Absolution looks even better.) but I know what to expect in some regards with that title. The War Z is exciting and unknown for me. It could be huge...or it could fall on its face.

    The world does not revolve around you. I think when a company speak of a time it fair to assume they are watching there clocks and not yours. However they have given a time when they are trying to release it. Going to be within the hour (hopefully).

    Luckily, a friend of mine is handing out guest passes like it ain't no thang. I'm still on the fence, but I'm glad I'll get to try it before spending my hard earned cash. The whole product seems fishy to me.

    Those guest passes can't be used until the 31st, hopefully you're already aware of that.

    Completely agree with you. Mega retarded on their part to not give us the effin file before today. Just goes to show there are even morons in the development world.

    Does anyone know where they post their updates to the community?  When I can access the forums, there no mention, and their Twitter feed hasnt been updated since the 12th.  Seems silly for them not to post updates to the community somewhere.

    Unfortunately no. The times I have been able to access the download link which was about 20 mins ago stated....

     

    "DEAR SURVIVORS,


    WE’RE WORKING WITH OUR CDN PROVIDER TO ENSURE THAT GAME CLIENT IS AVAILABLE TO ALL PLAYERS AROUND THE WORLD AT SAME TIME. UNFORTUNATELY IT REQUIRED MORE TIME THAN WE’RE ANTICIPATED, AND WE’RE APOLOGIES FOR DELAYS WITH RELEASING GAME TO YOU. 

    PLEASE VISIT THIS PAGE AFTER 3PM PST ( -8 GMT, PLEASE CHECK HTTP://24TIMEZONES.COM/ TO CONVERT TO YOUR LOCAL TIME )

    Dear Survivors,

    We’re working with our CDN provider to ensure that game client is available to all players around the world at same time. Unfortunately it required more time than we’re anticipated, and we’re apologies for delays with releasing game to you. 

    Thank you and see you in COLORADO later tonight !

    they've been better on the updates on FB, for better or worse.

    as i've posted in The War Z forum, Sergey (excecutive producer) admitted that the incredible response to the game in recent days (weeks) means they anticipate almost certainly the game to break and servers to crash on day one of alpha testing. certainly this can't be a surprise given AAA games with massive studio support rarely have smooth official launches.
