Arktos Entertainment Group and Hammerpoint Interactive have announced the zombie-apocalypse MMO, The War Z gathered over 100,000 closed beat registrations within a 24-hours period.

The online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game is set in an open world infested with zombies where players will need to use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other supplies in order to survive.

“The response in the first week since we announced the game has been incredible and it’s totally inspired the team,” said Eric Nordin, senior game designer. “We’ve been following all of the comments on the various forums as well as our Facebook page and it really validates that we’re creating something that gamers want to play.

“We’re going to continue working hard and make sure we deliver the best game possible.”

The War Z is slated for release in fall 2012 for on PC, and currently in the alpha stage. A closed beta will start in the “very near future.”
