Upcoming Zombie MMOs: ‘State of Decay’ and ‘The War Z’

Zombie video game fans have been blessed with the recent announcement of two new zombie apocalypse MMOs–The War Z and State of Decay.  Both games offer a sandbox-style world where survival, instead of story, is the focus.

The War Z is being developed by Hammerpoint Interactive.  The game will have first-person shooter-style gameplay but without levels, goals, achievements, or even an ending.  The War Z takes place in a huge, explorable open environment.  Players can choose to run amok or create a new society in the post-apocalyptic game world.  A person can play alone or team up with others online.  Players can even develop their own systems of currency and trade.  The War Z will be released exclusively for PC this fall.  After the initial download price is paid, the game will have no additional costs or monthly fees.  Game updates will be free of charge.  Learn more about The War Z on its official website.

State of Decay is the much anticipated zombie game from Undead Labs.  First announced almost three years ago, State of Decay is Undead Labs’ first video game.  State of Decay is a third-person action game.  It takes place during a global zombie outbreak, and the game setting is completely open world.  Players have to locate and reinforce their own fortresses, scavenge for food and supplies, recuse other people, and (of course) battle zombies.  The real-time game environment will change and evolve based on a player’s actions.  Initially State of Decay will only support two-player online co-op, but eventually it will be expanded into a full massively multiplayer online game.  State of Decay does not yet have a release date.  The game will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC.  Head to Undead Labs’ official site for more information and check out the game’s newly released trailer below.
