The long awaited zombie-survival MMORPG, The War Z was released on Steam today. Hammerpoint Interactive is calling the game’s current build the “Foundation Release” and it can be yours for the low price of $14.99. If you are looking for a solid apocalypse simulator for the upcoming doomsday on Friday, look no further.
The concept of the game is rather simple. You are a lonely survivor thrown into a zombie-infested world and your mission is to survive. Along the way you fight hordes of undead and even worse, fellow survivors, who will be more than comfortable killing you without a second thought. If you are familiar with the concept of Day Z, Left 4 Dead, or even Red Dead Redemption, you will feel right at home. There is definitely more of a focus on the RPG elements in The War Z, but there are also a wide variety of carefully thought-out survival components that give the game a very realistic feel. According to Hammerpoint Interactive, The War Z has had 600,000 player registrations so far and is played every day by over 150,000 people.
