    Just bought it and I am only a hour in. Obviously it's L4D inspired. I really like the PVP aspect and progression for the kind of game it is. I am sure it will start to become repetitive. If you like L4D and want to try something new. As of right now it's pretty fun.

    Interesting!
    If it can only bring back some of the feeling from L4D, then I'm sold.

    Though, on the PVP side, I doubt it will ever come close.. L4D was in a class of it's own with the Survivor Vs Special Infected!

    I'm still hopeful that Turtle Rock will go back to their roots with Back 4 Blood!

    I know it's not the same, but I cannot get Titov out of my brain seeing this name. Hopefully they get a chance and people don't assume it's related.

    doesn't almost every single fps now come with a zombie survival mode? or does it just seem that way?

    Well MOST are just made up to profit from the wave of zombie games spun off the TV series we saw back then.World War Z was actually a movie to base a game from,so it has some legitimacy in the marketplace.It is not like Apex simply copying a genre,with no reasoning at all,just because we can.

    I was actually watching the game thinking it might be cool but after seeing game play ,i was sort of turned off.The zombies look too fake,so i would feel no immersion.yes i know they moved sort of fast in the movie as well and climbed on top of each other but idk it just looks wrong in the game.
    However i can't fault them because their design does follow the movie ideas,it just doesn't look good enough for me to get into it.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Third-person view! And non-ugly characters! \o/

    But no Steam rating. And stupid Epic store which doesn't accept my card... So pass :-(

    Thank you for your time!

    To bad its epic store, I'd have bought it otherwise most likely. Everyone I know uses steam, none of them use the Epic store, so I have no desire to bother getting a game on there.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    I don't blame you, the stuff EGS is pulling is extremly shady and is anti-consumer, we should be allowed to choose where to buy it (most would get it on steam I bet due to features/friends on it). Competition IS good, but not the way Epic is doing it, as there is no competition there. I'm already losing out on borderlands 3 for 6 months due to epic's crap.

    Game looks much more fun than The Division 2. Outside of co-op campaign - is there non-PvP coop?

    edit: nevermind. Purchased the game right away. It looks better than TD2 and cost half the price.

    Thank you for your time!

    Don't care what platform it's on. I have no loyalty to any platform. We've already started to see some changes with valve because of the pressure epic is putting on them. At 35 bucks this is a steal for the amount of hours I'll be putting into it.

    I think the main issue for those people though (or at least one issue) is not just the platform they can get it from, but the platform their FRIENDS are using.

    This is a multiplayer-focused game, so if you can't multiplay with your friends because your friends don't or won't use that platform, that's a big strike against it.

    Unless they're on consoles I don't think it's accurate.

    So I've checked the game. Co-op has ~0 replayability and the game has 5-6 hours of gameplay unless you are into PvP(vZ).

    Thank you for your time!

    From what I gather (have'nt played it yet...), it has no replayability if you are the kind of player who does a map only one time and call it a quit.. but those kind of games are usually not about "the campaign" and more about counting on the "AI Director" to mix things up a bit, while you replay the same map at increased difficulty level, trying other things, leveling up classes, etc.
    (A bit like Vermintide 2, or L4D which did not even have classes nor levels)

    Its certainly not for everyone though, and I can understand some might think that there is no replay value in that.
