The lights are on
Arktos Entertainment and Hammerpoint Interactive have announced a new zombie MMO coming to the PC.
The new MMO will feature hybrid Player-vs-Player and Player-vs-Enemy, with players duking it out wasteland that has been ravaged by the zombie apocalypse. The game features deep RPG elements and cross server play that allows you to log into any serverthat your friends are on and take your character there.
The game will also have two modes, Normal, which allows players to be revived after a "cool down" period, and Hardcore, where death is permanent. The game also boasts the trademarks of a blockbuster MMO, large maps, and multiple camera perspectives, and multiple hubs, called safe settlements, for social and trade interactions.
The War Z will feature a onetime purchase, with no subscriptions or in game transactions. The war is coming fall 2012 and the question remains: How will you survive the zombie apocalypse.

I was not sold, but then i read "one time purchase, no subscriptions, and no in game transactions."
YESSS!!! MAKE THE GAME WITH ZOMBIES HEADSHOT ONLY, STUPID AND ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!!!
my dreams have come true :D
Hope my computer can run this!
Sounds like dayZ but with out the glitches, could be good
Oh good, another Zombie game.
Can't wait for this. I hope that pvp is optional though, that way new players won't get dominated by more experienced ones. This is definately in my gaming radar though, always need more zombies in my life.
People, read IGN's interview with the developer for a in-depth look at The WarZ.
This looks really, really good!

Make an MMO with a dynamic world that has zombies capable of all the behaviors they're popular for in movies and you have a gold mine I'd think.
Looks pretty good already
Yes yes yes yes
Zombie models look a lot like the first Left 4 Dead at some points...
