Hammerpoint Interactive Launches Foundation Release of The War Z on Steam

After a brief Beta period that introduced a host of new features, Hammerpoint Interactive is launching the Foundation Release of its zombie survival MMO The War Z on the Steam platform. The popular, online game boasts a current community of more than 600,000 registered players, with more than 150,000 playing daily. The Foundation Release introduces a bevy of core gameplay features and, moving forward, Hammerpoint will continue to develop new content and features for the game.

The War Z is an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open world infested with zombies. Players are thrust into this post-apocalyptic world five years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population and left, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Hordes of undead zombies roam the cities, and the few remaining human beings have devolved into a lawless, nomadic society where the sole objective is to survive at any cost. Players must use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other supplies necessary for survival. While navigating the vast landscape, they will discover cities teeming with the undead as well as other players that may or may not be friendly.

“The Steam platform gives us the ability to reach a huge audience of PC gamers and working with their team has been great,” said Sergey Titov, executive producer for The War Z. “Now that we’ve reached the Foundation Release milestone we will continue to work, as promised, to add features and content that will satisfy our community and keep them playing.”

Players can visit http://www.thewarz.com for more information. They can also have a chance to win gear and game access by “liking” on Facebook (http://facebook.com/warzmmo) and “following” on Twitter (http://twitter.com/the_war_z).
