Another thing putting me off spending £49.99 for a beta.. They seem a little lazy, the website and launcher are also horribly made.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

Haha... the sad thing? This is done by a LOT of people, though they did quite a silly slip up there. No one saw that all the oil companies had identicle safety reports? Far easier to copy and paste rather then to create their own since really, they don't have much reason to do anything original.

 

As far as copying War Inc... Yeah, they did, of course! Lot cheaper to reuse a lot of stuff then to create completely new, specially since some of those elements are things that WOULD be seen in the WarZ game in some form. Its their own game so really I don't have much of a problem with them doing it, specially since other game companies do this all the time. Now if its literally a carbon copy of the game with everything being identicle without having any content added, then we have some problems.

They likely WERE aiming for this game though the success of Day Z sparked pushing this out quicker and likely reusing more content. I'm sure they did take elements for Day Z, much like every other game out there does the same (You know that WoW game? Virutally None of its main features they add tend to be original, which isn't exactly bad either considering features like LFG and the likes can be actually benefitial to making the game better).

Jesus. Every thread on this site is full of incredibly intelligent people bickering back and forth about absolutely nothing. There was sarcasm in that last sentence, up to you to figure out where.

Do some information on the companies behind War Z and War Inc. Do some research into the subsidary company putting out War Z. Then come back and let's have the conversation about, "it's not their game." Hammerpoint is a subsidary, only created to publish War Z. There's plenty of sources of information out there, use them. 

So what, they're modding their own game. Some of my favorite titles were Half-Life and Half-Life 2 mods. And a company modding their own title just means they are more familiar with the assets.

Re-using assets is good, re-using them without finesse or creativity and pretty much a sad mockery is is not good, and what the human race tends to do.

WarInc is not their game

Sergey Titov: In our experience with previous games we've funded (Online Warmongers published "War Inc Battle Zone")

http://www.ign.com/wikis/the-war-z

They are using War Incs game engine, having been the ones to fund it. So yes, it IS their game, or more so they have the rights to use it. Heck, War inc players are even getting beta access to War Z

Guys relax, not the first time. Other great games like Mortal online also copied their TOS from other companies.

This pulled from the FAQs may shed some light on the matter. 

Arktos Entertainment Group LLC is a Los Angeles based, private equity and investment company founded by Sergey Titov - ex Technical Director of Riot Games. The company funds cool game projects and also heavily invests in the development of next generation online game engine technology. We met them when we started doing contract development for Online Warmongers Group - a portfolio company of Arktos, and the developers of War Inc. Battle Zone, a free-to-play online shooter (you can check it out here - http://www.thewarinc.com ). At that time we were creating a prototype of War Z using UDK and when we got our hands on their own Eclipse engine we were super impressed. So when Sergey offered to back the development and provide the engine license, we agreed.

There's nothing unusual about reusing standard agreements from other sources. People do it all the time in the legal world. A lot of people need basic legal documents/agreements with the same kinds of conditions and statements. Most wills are identical...the only difference being who gets the dead guys stuff.

It is the exact same animations, models, vehicles, textures, lighting, everything is the exact same but some blood a different character screen and one button removed. They changed the colores and added a background image, it is basically 90% of WarInc
