I bought and played War-Z. Same concepts but the designers are garbage. This game looks to have much better leadership and development. After I finish all my Christmas shopping this weekend, I may be looking to buy this one.

yea i bought it when it went on sale in october and played for a couple weeks and got a refund.. the game is terrible and the developers seem real sketchy and are just trying to cash in on the success of dayz.. dayz is by far the game to play if you want a zombie survival game.

yup theres all kinds of stuff and its a reall deep and immersive game.. u can find and repair helicopters, biplanes and all kinds of different vehicles. theyre sometimes rare but it makes the game better

Steam took it out of the store. Complete abortion of a game.

i would say stay low and crouch walk, dont run when moving around because zombies are attracted by sight and sound. dont rush straight into towns, lay back and scope them out..snipers will camp the bigger cities and shoot anybody they see. having a headset to communicate with players in game helps alot too. game has a learning curve to it, it doesnt play like call of duty or other fps.
