?We?ve been working non-stop to tweak and balance the game to where we feel comfortable beginning to bring more players in,? said Sergey Titov, executive producer for The War Z. ?We are now at that point, but this is where the real work begins. ?We want to work with our players to build and add additional features, remove those that they don?t like and continue to evolve The War Z to be the best zombie survival-sim available.?
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.
