The WarZ Alpha Gameplay Footage from PAX Prime

Co-Operative gameplay is revealed in this footage featuring uncut alpha gameplay of The War Z's multiplayer at PAX Prime 2012!

This post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested MMO is session-based and takes place five years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population, leaving a nightmare of epic proportion in its wake.  

 
Players will run into hordes of zombies and interact with others in a nomadic and completely lawless society which emphasizes survival of the fittest.  You'll have to use all your cunning to acquire food, weapons, and other supplies to continue your horrifying existence.  

The vast landscape contains cities which can be explored, and are teeming with the undead.  Even more frightening are those who still have their minds - the PCs youll run into may or may not be friendly.

Strong RPG elements are present, giving players the ability to earn experience points and then spend them on vital skills to aid their survival in the harsh, unforgiving environment.  

You'll be able to play with your friends as well - players can join servers as a group, or locate friends currently playing to join the same server.  A current list of game features boasts: 

  • Survival Horror MMO with entire game world build around a Zombie Apocalypse
  • Two modes of play: Normal (downed characters can be revived after “cool down” period) and Hardcore (death will be permanent)
  • Ability to switch between first-person (FPS) and third-person (TPS) perspectives
  • Huge maps ranging between 200 and 400 square kilometers
  • Unique social elements, including bounties, rewards, help requests, trap setting, etc.
  • Safe Settlements: safe cities within the world where players can purchase, sell and store items as well as post notes for other players
  • Single purchase, downloadable client with ability to play full game without subscriptions or requiring in-game transactions
  • Dedicated public servers as well as private servers that can be completely self-managed in game client
  • Full developer support with regularly scheduled, free content updates
  • Meld of PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player) gameplay
 
The game is currently in Alpha, with a closed beta planned soon to give testers plenty of time before the planned Fall release..  Visit http://www.thewarz.com to be notified of updates and other information, as well as pre-order the game for $29.99 to secure your guaranteed place in the closed beta.  More about the game can be found at the War Z Wiki, a comprehensive compendium of user-maintained information.
