    War Z

    Not to be confused with the Day Z thread!

    So, I've just been informed about this game:

    The War Z: The Survivor MMO Zombie Game coming to you this fall!

    Looks very interesting. Another survival horror game in the MMO style with no fees. It sounds seriously good!

    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.

    Forget subscriptions, forget paid DLC and expansion packs.

    The War Z is as simple as this - once you install the game to your computer, you will be able to get into the game quickly and play without worrying about subscription fees, no hidden fees, and no paid updates. All updates will be seamlessly delivered to you free of charge when they're released.

    Add AAA graphics and effects mixed with the ability to run even on integrated video cards or low end laptops and you have a unique, fun, experience that is available to everyone

    Choose one of the hundreds of servers to play on.
    Each Zombie Game world has an area of up to 400 square kilometers.
    As more worlds become available, just switch between them at any time, without losing your character's data, or paying any "world transfer fees".

    Start playing in our first world "Colorado", today, and prepare yourself to join other gameplay locations scattered around the world as we release more and more content.

    Create your own survival experience by selecting one of the available characters, customizing them and helping them to navigate through hostile world of The War Z.
    Gain experience and spend it to learn dozens of available skills in this Zombie Game.

    NO CLASSES AND RESTRICTIONS, NO LEVELS, OR UNREALISTIC STAT MODIFICATIONS.

    Your goal is to survive this Zombie Game and the ones that survive longest will be victorious!

    As you progress through this Zombie Game, exploring what happened, you will find notes and diaries that NPCs and other players left for you. These will have hints to the whereabouts of supplies and weapons you will need to survive.

    The War Z is an open world Zombie Game; as you explore and immerse yourself in this post-apocalyptic world you'll discover more than you ever imagined.

    You will find yourself hiding from zombies and other players;
    exploring hidden parts of the map and discovering hidden
    stashes throughout your journey.

    It's not easy to stay in touch with your friends in most games. This has been a key feature of War Z Zombie Game from the beginning. You are able to create a group, with friends, and then automatically join the same Zombie Game server together.
    You will also have the option to rent and manage custom servers without leaving the Zombie Game. Players can create either public or private servers, allocating reserved slots to their friends or group members.
    The ARMA2 world is 225Km2, at 400Km2 it's almost double the size! Considering now that an estimated 60% of players in DayZ hack, will anyone be considering this as an alternative, or will you be holding out for the DayZ stand alone?

    You're making me choose?! Aw man..

    I'll probably get them both, or at least try 'em. No sub fees for either so can always go back and forth. One will always do something better than the other.

    The War Z is now available to pre-order and includes Alpha access on the 15th and Beta Access on the 31st.

    https://account.thewarz.com/preorder/preorder.html

    Three package levels with different perks for each. Not sure to go for Pioneer or Legend access...

    Think I'm swaying that way too. By the time it's converted from USD to GBP, it's roughly £30 for the top pack which is no more then any new major release.

    I wondered where they were going to make their money. The "In game currency" gives that away.

    That would be cool. An Edugeek stronghold would be epic!

    Struggling to decided whether to pre-oder this or not. The concept looks really cool and being a fan of DayZ I'd love to finally get to play a finished Zombie MMO game. However looking at some of the gameplay videos it's obvious that the game is still in alpha as a lot of the basics still need serious work (zombie animations/AI, sound effects,etc). That and some posts on the web are even going so far as to claim it's a scam and simply a quickly thrown together mod of another game (War Inc.?) in order to cash in on the dayZ craze.

    I hope the devs do take the time to complete the game as it looks like it has potential though.

    Is the $0-$15-$30 of ingame currency ringing any alarm bells for anyone?

    Lose all that equipment when you die, just buy it again!

    It is a mod of WarInc, no great deal. Fifa13 is a mod of Fifa12, COD is a mod of the previous COD, of course all packaged up as a new product for you to buy every year. For me its the obvious rip from dayz, the basic survival using water, food, backpacks, the talk of zombie aggro (although they dont look like a challenge at all) or really hurting yourself from a small fall. They've taken the good bits from DayZ, added the worst from modern games (pay2win) and made it more like COD (never a good move in my book).

    No thanks.

    So the Alpha is out. Anyone had a chance to have a play?

    On a more "mooching" note, I've had to put getting it on hold. Therefore, if anyone who did pre-order it happens to have a spare "guest key" that they would like to donate to a fellow Edugeeker, much love, +rep and virtual eduhobnobs would be sent your way.

    Lost my entire weekend to this game (just had toe surgery so had to stay in, that's my excuse anyway!)

    Really enjoying it, so much so that i felt the need to share some of my experiences on the forums. Some raven unit stories.

    So far I'm a bit.. well, meeeeh about it.

    There doesn't seem to be much of a community to it. I've met 12 people in the past day or two, they've all attempted to kill me. 2 have succeeded, the others didn't realise that the shotgun on my back was loaded! I still keep my eye on it though, may get a nice group eventually! :P
