The War Z Zombie Survival Game

7 Dec


If you’re looking for a good zombie survival MMO game, then you might want to check out The War Z. The War Z is a zombie survival MMO game for the PC (Microsoft Windows) that is currently being developed by Hammerpoint Interactive. It is currently in the alpha stage of development and scheduled to be released in winter 2012. However, you can get access to the closed beta of the game by buying the game at the War Z official website. You only need to buy the game to get online access and there are no monthly subscription fees.


Why You Should Buy This Game

You should buy this game if you are a fan of zombie survival shooter games. Unlike other zombie shooter games where they give you powerful guns and plenty of ammunition to kill zombies with, this game requires you to search the game world for weapons and ammunitions while trying to avoid getting killed by roaming zombies. In addition to protecting yourself against zombies, you will also need to watch out for other players who may try to kill you to steal your weapons and ammunition. If you die, all of the items that you are carrying will disappear forever and you will need to wait for a few hours to get back into the game. The War Z is a great simulation of a real, post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested world where you may need to kill other people in order to survive. It has been praised by many game critics as one of the best zombie survival games in the market today.


The Dead Matter – Trailer

7 Jun

“The Dead Matter” tells a story of vampirism, the living dead, and ancient occult relics all drenched in the dark and shadowy world of Midnight Syndicate’s music. Inspired by EC Comics, Dark Shadows, Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, and Creepshow, this mix of classic horror and unique twists and turns promises to deliver for fans of the genre.

The highly anticipated dark fantasy film, “The Dead Matter”, is scheduled to be released on July 30 and will be available for sale at Hot Topic retail stores in the United States (and likely online, too).

Starring Andrew Divoff, Jason Carter, and Tom Savini, the film is about a grieving young woman who obtains a vamperic relic and is attempting to contact her deceased brother at all costs.

Based on the trailer, the effects actually look well-done and the acting appears to be decent, with realistic looking zombies, so hopefully The Dead Matter will be a decent zombie flick.

Creators, Midnight Syndicate, have chosen to release the film independently through Hot Topic stores and will be giving buyers the DVD, the Soundtrack and a collection of Midnight Syndicate Halloween music collection all for the same price as a normal DVD.

We’ll have a full review when the movie is released.

You can find out more on the official site or over on Facebook.

Deathwatch – Preview From A. M. Esmonde

The Dead have returned to life…

The worlds focus in on the city of Ravenswood and once idyllic town of Farmore, as soldiers and scattered survivors fight the hordes of the dead, unbeknown, one of them holds the key to end the undead’s reign of mayhem.

Meanwhile, at a body disposal plant a small group take shifts on the ‘deathwatch’. Their hope’s hinge on the soldiers of Farmore to rescue them. But with no contact for months, no food and surrounded by the dead, have they got what it takes to survive? With death at their door, only time can tell…

Zombie Command has managed to snag a look at the intro and first chapter from Welsh writer A. M. Esmonde’s forthcoming book and screenplay, Deathwatch. Esmonde’s previous work has included other genre pieces such as The Breathing Dead, Terminus and Blood Hunger (more about which can be found at his official site) and while this extract is still just a draft it’s shaping up to be a great zombie story in the style of Romero’s ‘of the Dead’ series.
