The War Z

So with Guild Wars 2 being a huge let down for me, and Guild Wars 1 in a downward spiral, I began a search for a new MMO. In my searches, I came across an upstart MMO, The War Z. Im pretty stoked about it, and cant wait for more information on it. I entered to try and get into the closed beta, so Ive got my fingers crossed.


The War Z: The Survivor MMO Zombie Game coming to you this fall!

So, it sounds a lot like the DayZ mod for ARMA II. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out when DayZ gets it's own standalone title and / if when Survarium launches. I take it this War Z mmo has nothing to do with Max Brook's "World War Z"?

If you don't mind me asking, what did you not like about GW2? I've been playing TSW while waiting for that to launch..

Guild wars 2 let down? Explain? It doesnt even launch for a few weeks.

Also, the war z is a full release of a popular mod called "day z" for ahrma 2 (i think) The original was an absolutely insane horror game, the scariest part of the whole thing was watching other humans interact. Some of the stuff that went on in that game was just insane....hostage situations, thefts, traps, it was absolutely insane. I'm really stoked for War Z

edit: Star Wars the old republic is going free to play soon as well, might be worth giving that a shot

The War Z has allegedly been in concept/development longer than Day Z. Either way, it should be fun if done right.

I got into the Beta for GW2 and I just couldn't stand it. Felt to much like WoW to me. To me, it was to far different from GW1. I also wasn't a fan of having to pay to respawn/fast travel. I understand it was a beta, but I just couldnt do it. Incredibly disappointing. And maybe I didnt get into the game enough, but I felt like it lacked skill to play.


Im pretty excited at the concept of a full release Day Z, and hopefully thats what The War Z is, more or less.

As for SWTOR, I may have to try it out now that is Free to Play.

oh yea, Survarium... I will be all over that one. as for this game, it already shows way more polish than DayZ.... only time will tell which one is the greater. DayZ has that awesome, early mod feel to it... love it. many great games started that way, including BF2 (Desert Combat), CS, team fortress, etc.

Preorder for War Z is out this month, by purchasing one of the upgraded packages you get to play in the Alpha that is released on the 15th.

It also looks like you have to spend money on stuff in order to customize your character... Ehh... Looks like I'm gettin the Legend edition.
