Overview

The War Z is a survival horror MMO, developed by Hammerpoint Interactive and published by Arktos Entertainment Group LLC. The War Z developing staff is formed of experienced game creators. They contributed to famous games like: Call of Duty, League of Legends and Star Trek Online. The publishing company is founded and managed by a former Riot technical director. The War Z is a game created and developed by gaming industry pros. The War Z deals with a post apocalyptic world invaded by zombies. Most of the population was infected with some sort of virus that caused a transformation into zombies. Zombies outnumber humans that must do everything they can to survive this hellish scenario.

The War Z is designed to be a sandbox game with a bit of RPG and shooter action. Players are given the tools to create and define a unique gameplay. Seems like the stats and level system are becoming obsolete for this new generation of games. When entering The War Z for the first time, players will choose a character. There is no class or race to select. The War Z characters will have some skills to aid them in the zombie war but everything is characterized by great flexibility. The War Z doesn't have a fixed development path. Players are thrown into The War Z virtual world and it's their job to figure out how to survive the zombie invasion. There are no standard quests or missions that reward players with items. The War Z features a quest editor. Players can create tasks for other players. Gear and weapons can be acquired but not through classic means. The War Z players can get items by following instructions found in diaries all over The War Z world. The War Z weapons are not necessarily guns or rifles. Any item that can be hand held and deals damage makes a good zombie fighting tool.

The War Z has a cash shop but every premium item can also be found in game. Dollars and gold coins are The War Z currency types. Private game servers are another premium feature. Anyone is free to rent a server and make the rules. Imagine a server where only you and your friends or guildies have access. Speaking of servers, players can freely move their The War Z character between official servers without any additional cost. The War Z uses a realistic graphic style and those zombies look scary enough to give you goose bumps. Some zones are actually pretty creepy. The War Z is not entirely a free MMO. Players need to pay a one time purchase fee.
