It is a Zombie MMO being released in Fall.





It takes a lot of elements from DayZ and improves on them(which honestly is not that hard cause anyone who has played DayZ knows their is a metric ton of bullshit in it) and is being made by an actual company instead of just some dude who doesn't take criticism well.



It will have Day/Night cycles but on a shorter cycle (don't remember but maybe every 4/6 hours?)

Zombies are headshot only (they say, can always be changed though)

The game is an MMO but there is no subscription and if you preorder the game it's $20 ($30 if you buy it normally)


There is a closed beta coming up and if you purchase the preorder you get 3 automatic beta keys. (I actually won one in a contest so I play for free ^_^)

Also the characters from Beta transfer over into the Real game.






There is a Hardcore and Normal gametype with differences between the two.


Normal you die you lose either a good portion of your stuff, or just everything in your backpack. Don't quite remember.


Hardcore is full reset of character, all the way down to the name.





There are some "safe zones" in the game where you can go and buy supplies but there is nothing stopping bandits from waiting around outside or sniping from the outside (except having to be a real skilled shot and really getting nothing out of it)




Ammo and weapons are supposedly REALLY hard to find, but I can't judge any of that till playing the game.



I have a shit ton of other info, ask questions and i'll answer if you are interested. Think this would be a fun game for a few of us with better PC's to play.

This isn't a lazy mans plot device...

It was made from the success of DayZ mod, which was completely free and just supposed to be a PvE/PvP free world zombie game.

Then the developers of Arma II saw the success and hired them to make an actual game.

EDIT: And I really want them to make finding guns and ammo hard as fuck, because if you can get it too quick and often then it'll just be COD. And making the zombies only headshot kills is really awesome, it'll make it the perfect zombie game <3

It's a lazy mans plot device because you don't need to make your own plot.



Just add zombies and it's plot already, no originality needed.


Doesn't mean it's not fun, just not creative from a writers standpoint.










Yeah the guys said the weapons are hard to find and ammo even harder. Said in a post he played for like three hours and only had 3 clips for his pistol.

well, think about it. A true zombie game where survival is the ONLY goal. Almost minecraft-esque in how its simply a world for all your own stories to be told in. Now the map needs to be HUGE and vary greatly to give it a chance, especially with LOTS of different spawn points so every 'life' is already different than the last.

People like the fall of society stuff. Yes zombies as themselves are getting too cliche, but in a post-society survival game, zombies are mostly the cannon fodder to force interaction. If the only threat is other players, it can get a little weak. There needs to be some kind of catalyst, and zombies are a good one for that purpose.

and on the subject of headshots only, I feel that's not going to be fun. Maybe as the only means to truly finish them off, but there needs to be at least solid damage dynamics. I would figure with the time saved from actually scripting much meaningful player interactions, you can make severely injuring limbs in zombies a possibility.

so the stories can start to vary a bit more, in how you blew out one zombies femur when you were snap shooting.

Oh yeah.



If you shoot a zombie enough it will go down, but the only way to finish it is to shoot it in the head. If you just shoot the hell out of it it will just get back up later.




And you can barricade buildings doors and maybe windows to keep zombies/people out as well.

If you'd have said that about a year or two ago, I would have agreed with you, given how many games/movies/tv series had zombies in them in a very short period of time.

It's got a lot better since then, with only Day Z and the Walking Dead tv show and games being the main use of them at the moment.

After i've tried the beta out for a day or two I might preorder the game and Vtrooper is as well giving us 5 extra keys to give away.



Anyone want to try the game out?

I can''t Sad

Otherwise I'd play the fuck out of it.

I like the fact that only killing the brain will really stop them though, it makes them like REAL zombies, not the rabies kind from 28 days later and left 4 dead (which are still cool). Shoot them in the head to destroy them, but you can also probably shoot their legs until they're useless, or maybe their spinal column.

There also seems to be a more realistic damage system for the player maybe.



They put it up as a poll if everyone would be cool with Metal Gear Solid 2 like system.


(it's where you have a broken arm or a cut on the leg and you can individually heal the injuries with items such as a rag or something)

No telling yet if that will actually be in though.






If they have a system like that in place I don't see why they can't have zombies reacting certain ways to different injuries on appendages.

Do it at night so then you can watch people get confused and eaten as they look for zombies they heard, only to get eaten by crawlers.

I think there may be crawlers, but im not 100%




They have crawling animation for people, so I don't really see there NOT being crawling zombies.

There is also a bounty system on bandits.



Someone can put a bounty on another persons head and you can get paid for killing them.



Hasn't really been given a lot of detail yet.

Did I not mention the different maps?


Well the first map is set in Colorado and is about the size of DayZ's map minus all the water around the edges(about 1 k every direction so a lot of the fucking map number is water).


They also have plans for New York and maybe London or Paris. Lots of maps will be made(for free)





And for New York: Yes, they are making skyscrapers with a ton of floors enter-able.

You can make signs or leave messages that other players can read.




"If you are reading this then I am lining up my shot"


"wut?"

i'd love to try it out.

what I meant by lazy mans plot device is, like pheonix said, lazy people have a tendancy to throw in zombies with no plot, and you have a story, when real stories are about character interactions. not really about the problem they are trying to overcome.

which is why zombieland was the best zombie movie in a long time. Because the zombies were a framing device for meaningful characters.
