There have been a lot of criticisms and observations that two upcoming zombie survival games, namely Day Z and The War Z are more than a little similar. The War Z‘s executive producer has sat down with VG247 to say that they don’t mind being compared to Day Z at all. “In fact we are fans of the mod,” says executive producer Sergey Titov.
“Ultimately, we hope that gamers will end up playing both The War Z and the Day Z standalone. It’s difficult to compare at the moment, but, though there are similarities, we tried to create a game that was a little bit easier to access and play, and that would allow players to be creative and create their own scenarios.”
“We aren’t looking to be better than or displace Day Z at all – there is definitely room for two great games in the same genre and we think that the gaming audience will agree.”
