The Open Beta version includes several new features, including the release of the full game map as well as new purchase options for incoming players
Arktos Entertainment Group and Hammerpoint Interactive have announced the start of the open beta test for The War Z (TWZ), an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open world infested with zombies. The OB version of The War Z offers new playable characters, clan support (in-game clan tags, in-game clan chat, visual markers for clan members), a new playable area (final section of the "Colorado" game world opened up, increasing current map size by 50 percent), and new items in the game marketplace
Additionally, to honor the core community that supported the game through Alpha, Hammerpoint will be providing current players with a bevy of perks and also eliminating the existing "Survivor, Pioneer and Legend" game packages, which will be replaced with three different packages for new players. The new packages will include guest keys and in-game currency, but will not include any of the special recognition perks offered with the previous packs.
