Free Reign East has released the spiritual successor to its zombie survival MMO The War Z into beta, and its called Romero’s Aftermath.


The War Z was later renamed Infestation: Survival Stories due to trademark issues back in June 2013.

Romero’s Aftermath was reportedly restarted from scratch, and George Cameron Romero collaborated with Free Reign on the game. Yes, he’s George A. Romero’s son.

“Romero’s Aftermath costs nothing to download and play, and the only purchasable items are cosmetic skins, customisations and boosts that allow players to acquire certain in-game items more quickly,” states the post on Steam. “Every item can be acquired during play by exploring, looting, trading or defeating other survivalists.”

You can find out more on the game through its Steam page and the official website.
