War Z is no Day Z thats for sure. Ill try it but I dont have high hopes. Rocket the dev for Dayz has the right idea going the simulation route.  Warz sounds like a dumbed down version of Dayz.

DayZ and WarZ have zombies but different game mechanics which is a good thing. Looking forward to playing WarZ!

I understood what he was saying perfectly. I don't understand how you don't understand. 

I could use a dumbed down version of DayZ sometimes. A nice getaway from the frequent anxiety filled version. Man I hate zombies.

sadly having wasted the 8minutes or so to watch this video.. i found out 3 things

1) the woman is just reading the forum posts about the game and its planned features..

2) i could have saved my self the trouble of watching the video as this info was already made avalible to my self and millions of others about 3days+ ago

3) the opionons this woman has about the game.. sound phony  as the majority of them are the exact same opinions people have posted about this game already O-o 

 

frankly i would rather spend 8minutes hearing about some of the unreported things about this game.. instead of a copy and paste of the already public/posted planned features and comments made about it.  fact is this video provides nothing to the discussion on WarZ... as the planned features are not writen in cement they could change right now... 

might have been a tad more prudent to hold off making this video until after some sort of alpha was provided so the "look at" was more of a look at then an hopeful opinion peice :/

One thing that's been said is that this isn't going to be a theme park game. The devs did say that this was going to be a sandbox. I read this on a recent interview, I think on PC Gamer with one of the devs.

The game is clearly going for a more cut throat approach and I like it. I know it will not be for everyone, but that is how it should be. There are too many games that promis to deliver to everyone and usually end up being mediocre in all but one area. It is nice to know from the word "go" what to expect to some degree.

I especially like that the, I guess you would call it a hub, town can have PvP in it. It kind of fits into the "if everyone had a gun but bullets were a million dollars each" saying. You will likely die if you try anything in a town but shoulden't you still have the choice? Besides, I like being kept on my toes.

@Ichmen If the things covered in this video were "unreported" than it'd either be me using industry leaks or making up information for content and views. I don't deal in doing either.

This Game Face was done no differently than the last, in all honesty.

And phony opinion? Great minds think alike. Nothing wrong with having an opinion similar to others. Shouldn't be so quick to make accusations.

@Banegrivm The fact that it has an experience and skill point system (effectively a leveling system - even tho it isn't number based), makes it pretty themepark and less like the sandbox that is DayZ. Honestly, that is part of the charm of DayZ, there isn't really a "leveling" system besides getting gear/weapons.

Not to mention WarZ will have questing in the game. Taken from an interview on IGN:

"Outside of that, for each world there’ll be set of “missions” that you need to complete in order to have the world “100% complete” – those missions range from simple things like “kill X number of zombies’ to more elaborate like “open safe on military base” or “ find this rare item."

Not themepark? I disagree. It may not be linear, however, it does have elements of a themepark MMO.

its "phony" in that it sounds like you are reading it off a tella propter... really doesnt come across as natural. 

As for unreported there are loads of ways to get extra public info without being a insider leak :/ couldnt you have contacted the devs and had an impromtue chat (not an offical offical interview or anything) just impromt chat ?? while i have no idea when you actually recorded this, i have run across lots of other posts with more info on other sites from interviews and impromt chats, not sure why you didnt try to gather more info. as that would really help you draw people. 

much like i watch the 6'oclock news over the 11'oclock as there is not much differance other then ancher most nites. 

 

my simple constructive crit would be, try to gather more "news" for this kinda thing doesnt have to be much.. just alittle more info then talking about their "future plans" splash from their game discription.  not asking for a full blowin thing just browse around send an email or two, to the PR for the game.. from what i have seen, a few indies dont mine talking about their game to people who are interested.  do that and your little video blog thing could be quite interesting to watch.

you would be amazed how a paragraph of new info can go with people interested in a game.

I agree, that this was just a summary. IMO, this format (video) is not appropriate for a summary. With or without Pokket. For a summary i prefer structured text, because its much neater.

There are other opportunites, where the video-format shines.

TLDR entire thread.  That said the end result is this, when given the opportunity to screw over other player characters, players will take part.  
 
This is in direct relation to the board posting ability mentioned in this video.  I'm sorry, I would LOVE to believe that humans aren't sadistic psychopathic killers by nature but the reality is when there are no real consequences this just isn't true (as a whole).
 
If you feel I am wrong just take a look at ANY game available that offers the aforementioned as an option then compare those that take part versus those that don't (as long as not doing so IS in fact a viable option).

After a while she began just rambling .

Will The War Z have traditional quests?

ST: There are no quests or missions in the traditional gaming industry sense of the word. We’re not building an objective based game, but instead building a sandbox with lots of tools that will allow players to create their own experiences. We took a basic theme that we love—the zombie apocalypse/survival genre—and asked ourselves what the world would look like in this scenario? What means of interacting with the world or other players would be available? What would the world economy look like? We built the game design around that. If you think about our feature set with that perspective it makes more sense. For example, we have what we call “safe settlements,” that are really not completely safe at all. They are built by people that survived the infestation and are working to rebuild civilization, so they are taking precautions to make sure that their home remains safe. If you obey the rules, there’s no danger for you, but it’s not a place that you can go anytime and expect you’ll be 100 percent invincible.

I"m not sure where you are getting themepark from? Or is every sight just adding their own skewed information ?

Sergey Titov: There is no max level in the game. And yes, the ultimate goal is to survive as long as you can. Normal and Hardcore players will have their own separate leaderboards, plus we’ll have special servers where only hardcore players will be allowed, those servers will contain some rare items, not found on mixed servers. Outside of that, for each world there’ll be set of “missions” that you need to complete in order to have the world “100% complete” – those missions range from simple things like “kill X number of zombies’ to more elaborate like “open safe on military base” or “ find this rare item."

http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/07/19/the-war-z-a-new-zombie-survival-experience?page=3

I think this has been misinterpreted the quests are a set for world completion, not each server will have quests like this as the norm to do over and over like traditional mmorpgs.

I fully applaud ANY game that delivers tools to allow the gamers to make the game.I wish Pockket woudl have used some video and shown the viewers how these tools are put into use.

I played and thoroughly enjoyed Unreal Tournament for years becuase the yreleased the whole game engine/tools and allowed the public to improve the game.

Even to this day the UDK is fully avaialable to anyoe.I some how get the feeling this is not quite the scale of "tools" we are talking about?

It's like, Pokket has a "Creep Magnet" that she uses in every video. It's also probably why I dislike her videos a bit simply because of the "vibe" she gives at that doesn't speak maturity to me. For whatever reason that spills out over the internet like a milk truck and all the super-creeps (in this instance, cats) run from all directions.

 

Not something that Pokket can help except to work on how she presents herself in the videos :)!

I haven’t played DayZ, but I take that it is a Loot based system and has no crafting.  Just curious if word has mentioned any crafting for WarZ?  I wouldn’t expect a character to be crafting a kalashnikov, but something at the level of an insurgent maybe.

How about melee weapons like sledge hammers and fire axes, for when ammo runs out or you just don’t want to make noise?
