I have been getting emails pretty much daily about the beta being released soon, and I'm not sure how I really feel about the game. My first reaction was that I was excited about playing a more accessible and possibly more polished version of DayZ. The screen shots of the environments were exciting, and I liked the idea that zombies would be the primary threat so that there would be more of a focus on team play rather than PvP as in DayZ. However, the more I read about the game/watch Alpha footage, something doesn't sit well with me. The maps still look great, but everything about the inventory system and the character creation mechanics look really cheap. I have played War Inc. by the same developers, and it only held my attention for a few days with some of the jank that was involved. It's not that I don't think this game doesn't have potential, but something just feels.....off. As someone who enjoys DayZ, I'm very open to more games like this coming out, but I don't really want to pre order The War Z just to play the beta if I end up not liking it. What is everyone else thinking?
