The War Z - Another Zombie Survival Game

Zombie games seem to become more and more popular, just recently a game mod called DayZ (ArmA II) received a lot hype and began to increase its player-base rapidly.
But this news aren't about DayZ, it's about a new MMO called "The War Z".
It's an upcoming zombie survival MMO which is developed by Hammerpoint Interactive and will be published by the Arktos Entertainment Group.

The game will feature multiple maps, based on real world locales such as Los Angeles and Paris. And these new world/maps will be available for free to the community.

The atmosphere of the game will be post apocalyptic, most of the human population will be dead already or zombies. Some mutated type of zombies has special stem cells which can be used to cure humans of the zombie virus.
The players main goal, is to hunt these "special" zombies in places where many zombies gather (big cities, larger towns, etc). They will be able to exchange the cells for the most valuable currency, gold coins.

There will be notes and diaries all over the place, left by players or NPCs. These documents will give you certain hints and useful information about the location of equipment for example, but be careful some may be a trap or misleading since you never know about the intentions of other players.

Other features of the game:
  • Day and night cycle
  • First and third person perspective
  • Clan Option
  • You will be able to create up to 5 survivors (Characters)
  • 2 different Game Modes (Normal & Hardcore)
  • Skill trees
  • No maximum level
  • Up to 250 players per server
  • Free content updates
  • Dedicated & private servers
  • Single purchase (Buy-to-Play)

The price of the game will be $29.99 and there will be a discount for those that pre-order the game.
They are holding an international alpha test right now, the closed beta is set for later this summer to a certain amount of players that sign up on their website.

Some screenshots:


What's your thought about this game? The names look so similar because of the Z; but they stated that they started to develop this game before they even knew about DayZ.

Your chance to take part in the closed beta test:

Yes, you are correct, it's a buy-to-play game.
Same as Guild Wars 2 for example.
There is no monthly fee (pay-to-play) and upcoming content (Maps/Areas) will be free of charge.

Is there a public release date?
Will it come to Austria/Germany?

But the most important question:

Where to Pre-Order?

I already registred with 2 emails for beta acces.

I've read somewhere that you can preorder it next week already and get beta acces.

Cool, but I don't like the game's payment method. You have to buy the game, and then use microtransactions in the game's store for "items that make the game easier". The fact that there will be "normal" (death is not permanent, but there's a wait of up to a day or two) or "hardcore" with perma-death, this means that you're just wasting money.

1. No
2. Yes
3. Just keep on checking their site, there will be information about the pre-order for sure.

I only registered with 1 email and my girlfriend registered with another one.

I couldn't really find any information about the exact pre-order date but I guess the pre-order time will start together with the closed beta.

The microtranscation system sounds fair to me:
Quote:
players will be able to make certain micro-transaction purchases in the game, but they will not be for improved weaponry or anything that will give you an unfair power advantage. Instead, players will be able to purchase things that will help save time, such as reviving their character in normal mode, buying slightly more effective food, hydration packs, medkits, etc.
Plus players will be able to obtain the golden coins from special zombies anyway.

There are people, who buy equipment and vehicles for DayZ and there death is always permanent.
