War-Z (A game of zombie survival)

Tweet

A brief description of the game.

Sergey Titov: We started thinking about doing a zombie game last year and began developing a quest-based MMO set in a large, zombie infested world. Players would be able to explore and “unlock” new areas on the map as they progress through quests assigned to them in-game. 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.” As we saw the popularity of DayZ grow, and how players and the community were reacting, we realized two things – first, there was validation that our idea of making a zombie MMO was actually right and that there is a market/player base for it, and second, we decided to abandon the idea of unlocking parts of the map as you progress – rather, the player will be able to freely roam the world and gather information and quests by exploring notes, diaries, etc left behind by both real players and NPCs.

Thinigs to expect

Eric Nordin: The game is set five years after a “zombie apocalypse,” so most of the human population is either dead or turned into zombies. Cities are decaying, resources are scarce and scattered around the world. About a year prior to when the game begins, a special, mutated type of zombie is discovered. These zombies have stem cells can be extracted and used to create a vaccine that cures humans of the zombie virus. People around the world are hunting these “special” zombies, however they can only be found at night, and they are rare, so players will need to go to places where zombies gather in masses – namely – big cities, larger towns, etc. If you hunt these special zombies and extract the stem cells, you’ll be able to sell them to merchants at “safe settlements” for Gold Coins – the most valuable currency in the game.
SO my question to you is-whats your opinion of a game based on Zombies taking over the world

      shut up bro some console gamers wanna play too doesnt matter what it’s meant for if it reaches more audiences then it should be created weather it sucks or not it wont matter can’t hurt anyone aslong as your smart and look at youtube first…………..just saying

  • Gareth

    what are u on about thats like saying dont make PES because fifa is a football game, DayZ is only meant for arma 2 but War-Z isnt, and the reason the name is similar is coz its to do with zombies so they have the Z at the end and its also coz of how good DayZ has done they probz want people to see that this is along the same lines so they can do well in selling it.

    Please do make this. Should be a GREAT distraction for those run and gun COD kids who treat Cherno like a close quarters map.

    • zach

      a distraction for COD kids…….. I’m pretty sure this game won’t distract people away from the up and coming black ops 2

    it better not suck like dead island did

    • zach

      didnt like the realism and the fun that dead island gave guess you didn’t play past the first ten minutes cause dead island is unlike other zombie games a game were you have to run at times unlike left 4 dead 2 u kill all zombies so dead island is realistic, hard, and fun

  • JW

    Think u guys got it wrong, The game that is comming for the play is “The War Z”(Find clues at IGN, etc). Day-Z is a Mod for Arma 2, its a first ~ third person shooter. U need have Arma 2 and Operation Arrowhead, it allready exist and have nothing to do with The War Z.

  • Dodo

    Is this comming out in PS3??????

  • !

    just red the interviwe on ign. you are on the right way guys. looking forward to your game. im a big fan of the s.t.a.l.k.e.r. series and was waiting for a mmo game in that syle. hope its something like that :D

    sounds like a refreshing idea cause the latest zombie games r like over done n leave nothing to adventurious surprises,n i like how they say zombie survival as opposed to like most games u just blastin-em away id b impressed if it was more survival than im a super zombie destroyer

    when they put the trailer on youtube?

  • DevilDog

    thatsn freakin awesome man make it for the Ps3 just one thing please make it free roam and multiplayers

  • Ron

    I like the idea of a survival game dealing with zombie infestation. It would be like everyone could have a front-seat active role in a thrilling scary movie. (And have the feel of playing “hardcore” style where every second decides your fate in the game. Create an exciting game with interesting quests, and free-roam etc. and I’d have no problem with a subscription fee even. Make it expansive like a real-life digital Earth.

  • tadashi

    i wish they would make a good free roaming and scavenging game for ps3 there really arent that much
