The War Z enters beta, launching new characters, items and locations

Tuesday, 4th December 2012 23:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The War Z has completed its alpha testing phase, wiping tester progress and presenting a shiny new beta release.

PC Gamer reports the beta build introduces new playable characters and store items, and unlocks the last section of the game’s map.

As alpha has ended, purchase options which granted access have been removed, with three new packages available to would-be players. Each comes with a scaling amount of in-game currency and guest keys, and will set you back between $15 and $50.

A forum post outlines developer Hammerpoint Interactive’s plans for the game going forward. A new major build, Foundation, is expected this month, and will introduce a number of features, notably clans, friends, leaderboards, server rentals, new building materials, the ability to call for help, and more weapons.

    Before you go buy this game I would check into the forums about it. There has been a HUGE issue with the game and the way it bans hackers. ALOT of people that are not hacking are getting banned and the support is not doing anything about it and to top it off they are claiming that the cheat engine that they have in place is 99% accurate. Alot of the people playing WAR Z are asking for refunds and suport is basically telling people that tough your not getting any money back you got to play even if it was for 20 mins.
