  Hammerpoint Interactive Launches Foundation Release of The War Z on Steam

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- December 18, 2012

After a brief Beta period that introduced a host of new features, Hammerpoint
Interactive is launching the Foundation Release of its zombie survival MMO The
War Z on the Steam platform. The popular, online game boasts a current
community of more than 600,000 registered players, with more than 150,000
playing daily. The Foundation Release introduces a bevy of core gameplay
features and, moving forward, Hammerpoint will continue to develop new content
and features for the game.

The War Z is an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open
world infested with zombies. Players are thrust into this post-apocalyptic
world five years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population and
left, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Hordes of undead zombies
roam the cities, and the few remaining human beings have devolved into a
lawless, nomadic society where the sole objective is to survive at any cost.
Players must use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other
supplies necessary for survival. While navigating the vast landscape, they
will discover cities teeming with the undead as well as other players that may
or may not be friendly.

“The Steam platform gives us the ability to reach a huge audience of PC gamers
and working with their team has been great,” said Sergey Titov, executive
producer for The War Z. “Now that we’ve reached the Foundation Release
milestone we will continue to work, as promised, to add features and content
that will satisfy our community and keep them playing.”
