Arktos Entertainment and Hammerpoint Interactive are looking to strike while the zombie-slaying iron is hot with a new zombie apocalypse MMO set to release as early as this Fall.
The War Z, or TWZ for short, is set five years after a viral outbreak decimated humanity, leaving those who remain to struggle for survival in a lawless environment also populated with hordes of undead zombies. Players will have to seek out supplies, food, and weapons in order to survive.
TWZ will feature both normal and hardcore modes, the latter of which will feature permadeath and can be played in either a third or first person perspective. The game's environments will range anywhere fromm 200-400 square kilometers and will be host to a variety of both PvE and PvP gameplay, including bounties, trap setting, help requests, and more.
While the developers intend for TWZ to be a dangerous world, there will be several safe settlements for players to congregate in order to trade and store items or even post notes for other players to find.
The War Z will only require a single purchase of the game (no subscription fee) and is currently in Alpha.
