The War Z
« on: October 19, 2012, 11:53:15 AM »
Title: The War Z
Website: http://thewarz.com
Purchase Link: https://account.thewarz.com/preorder/preorder.html
Price: US $24.99 to $39.99

For the $24.99 pack, you start accessing the game in beta only after OCT 31. The other pack, you can start playing after OCT 15. Which technically, means immediately.

Background
A game set in the post zombie apocalypse and survivors(you and others) trying to survive. You create a character to and join a server and for that survivor, the longest time that u stay alive is recorded. The number of zombies you kill and the number of neutrals you kill is also recorded.

Gameplay
After you start a game, you reach the survivor selection screen where you can create your survivor. After creating your survivor, you can join a server to start exploring the map.

You start with a torchlight and some minor supplies and is spawned anywhere on the server. Fret not however as after you start playing on the server, when you leave, your position is saved and if you join back any server hosting the same map, you are spawned at the place you leave.

After you die in a server, you get sent back to the survivor selection screen where you have to wait a countdown before that survivor is revived.

Initial Weapons
Played left 4 dead or left 4 dead 2? like how the game starts you with guns and you can start blazing off into the zombie hordes? Sorry to be a bummer as this game starts you off without any decent weapons except for a torchlight which you can use to "alert" the zombies you are near them. And by decent i mean any weapon that can actually kill the zombies and Torchlights most definitely do not cut it.

Some Tips
The top right of the ui shows 2 bars, the one at the top indicates the level of you being seen and increases with any movement. The more intense the movement, the higher the level. The bar at the bottom indicates the amount of sound you are making.

At the bottom left of the ui is where the character silhouette, hunger bar and thirst bar can be found. The character silhouette is filled with red and represents the amount of health you have. The lesser the red, the lower your health. The hunger bar is to the left of the character silhouette while the thirst bar can be located at the right. Both bars decrease with time and can be refill be eating food and drinking water.

Pressing shift allows you to run at the expense of stamina. The stamina bar can be found appearing only after some stamina has been expended and will be found circling the character silhouette,hunger bar and thirst bar at the bottom left of the ui.

Running increases the amount of sound you make. Walking makes lesser and crouching even lesser. Pressing Z will make your character prone. Backspace will empty your hands in case you activated the torchlight and is emiting light like a lighthouse.

Do remember that you are living in a post zombie apocalypse world, where human moral values mean nothing and killing another survivor grants you the posession rights to whatever he/she is carrying. As such, be very careful in wherever you thread and do not trust others so easily. *p.s* i was walking around after finding a town and suddenly i was sniped dead, without even knowing where the guy shot me from.
