A new zombie MMO for the PC has been announced by Arktos Entertainment and Hammerpoint Interactive.
The War Z is an MMO in which you and other will be fighting for your lives among a zombie apocalypse wasteland. The game will feature a hybrid player vs. player (PvP) and player vs. enemy (PvE) gameplay, and will allow you to bring your character into whichever server you’d like with cross server play. So if you’d like to jump into a friends server, or have them jump into yours, no new character will need to be made.
The game also features two modes:
- Normal – players may be received after a cool down period
- Hardcore – death is permanent
It will also feature deep RPG elements and is said to have all the trademarks of a blockbuster MMO: large maps, multiple camera perspectives, and multiple hubs (called safe settlements) used for social and trade interactions.
The War Z will be a one time purchase, no subscriptions or in-game transactions will take place. It will be released fall of 2012 for the PC. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse?
