Hammerpoint Interactive announced this morning that The War Z is finally heading into Beta today.
The online survival-multiplayer game netted over 500,000 players during the Alpha stage and the latest version will include new features such as:
- New Characters – new playable characters
- Clan Support – in-game clan tags, in-game clan chat, visual markers for clan members
- New Playable Area – final section of the “Colorado” game world opened up, increasing current map size by 50 percent
- New Items – players will have access to new items in the game marketplace
For those who were in the Alpha, the developer is giving those players additional perks while new packages will replace “Survivor, Pioneer and Legend”, which will feature guest and in-game currency.
