New Zombie MMO in the works

The War Z

By on July 20, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Having seen the success of ArmA II mod Day Z, Hammerpoint Games and Arktos Entertainment have announced that they are moving forward with their zombie apocalypse MMO, The War Z. Sitting down to discuss the MMO, Sergey Titov, executive producer at Arktos told IGN, “When DayZ was released to the public we were really excited to see another game that was akin to what we were working on – we were like ‘wow, that’s cool, we’re not the only ones making something like this.’” He went on to say, “As we saw the popularity of DayZ grow, and how players and the community were reacting, we realized [...] there was validation that our idea of making a zombie MMO was actually right and that there is a market/player base for it.” The game is currently in its alpha phase and will see release before 2012 is out.

Fingers crossed they do it without adding some kind of grind or leveling system and keep it 100% accessible from the moment you log on.

 

Sounds good at this stage.

Might also pressure DayZ to go standalone sooner.
