“The last couple of weeks of Alpha, since we began allowing public access, have been incredible,” said Sergey Titov, executive producer for The War Z. “We’re extremely happy with the way things are going and the players seem to understand the hurdles of the game being in Alpha and have been really supportive. We will continue to listen to the feedback from our community and use it to add the features and content that will match their expectations and help us to make this game the best it can be.”
The War Z is an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open world infested with zombies. Players are thrust into this post-apocalyptic world five-years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population and left, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Hordes of undead zombies roam the cities, and the few remaining human beings have devolved into a lawless, nomadic society where the sole objective is to survive at any cost. Players must use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other supplies necessary for survival. While navigating the vast landscape, they will discover cities teeming with the undead as well as other players that may or may not be friendly.
