The War Z

The War Z is the world's first survival mmo Zombie Game. You may have played Zombie Games before - now it's time to live one.

It's been five years since the outbreak; leaving in its wake a post-apocalyptic nightmare with ninety-five percent of the human population gone. In order to stay alive, you will need food, weapons, and other supplies. Some of you will be able to scavenge as you navigate the terrain, others will be forced to fight for survival as you encounter zombies and other players. Every decision will have an impact on whether you live or how quickly you die.
Sounds like a standalone DayZ for PC.

Some of the things they mention.

-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

I'm really looking forward to this! What I like so much about DayZ seems to be in here and more. One of the coolest factors is whether or not to kill a person or trade with them and it looks like that's back. Hopefully there will be more vehicles available though, especially with such a huge map (2x the DayZ map which is 225 square kilometers).

yeah it's pretty much a better version of DayZ and looting is confirmed so that's probably what he's doing.

It uses the same engine as some game called Warwick or something like that. Starts with a W

anyway it's in this interview with the developer.



You can play this game on a laptop I heard. So I'm looking forward to that!

I might be able to play it. I need a new mouse though. I used to play COD4 and Rainbow Six Vegas on here. L4D 1 and 2 and Battlefield Heroes on here.

Another cool thing about this game is that people will only have to pay $30 to pay it.

Nothing but screenshots on the official site. You have to pre-order to play the beta.

DayZ has been vetted by over a million players during it's alpha stage. It has it's flaws, but it has already entertained a lot of people, for a lot of time, and it's still in development...the final product should, in theory, only improve on an already very popular design.

Not trying to be a fanboi, but it's simply a matter of one game having already (sort-of) proven itself, while the other frankly comes across as a lot of smoke and mirrors surrounding some very lofty claims.



If you are so into the idea of WarZ, do what you need to in order to ensure you can play the DayZ standalone. It will be better.

Another cool thing is that Shifty has jumped on the hypetrain when the only thing anyone knows about the game is claims by the developers.

It's a shit, event-driven version of DayZ.

Don't be silly, no one has played it yet, and no one will for a long time.
