Is this game open world or story driven?

Thanks for that link, I hadn't seen that. Even more of a reason for people to stop pre-bashing this game! Theres literally no recent footage of it.

I still get the feeling it's not open world from what I've heard in interviews. I could be....and hope I am, wrong about that.


ya something didnt feel right so i researched it. i try and find a few sources before i post anything. even if not if done right it can be a lot of fun. open world is a lot of work. left4dead showed you dont need open world to be fun.

Left for Dead was too fast paced for me, Dead Island while great, is not survival styled in a realistic sense.

After seeing a few videos of War Z and Day Z....I need that type of game. Open world survival. It's the natural evolution of zombie games...at least some of them.

I won't buy this one if it's not open world, i'll rent it. I'm gonna buy Dead Island RT either way, I want a different style game but that game IS gonna be sweet!

My apologies for the link. I didn't realize, although the article you posted there from penny arcade goes on to mention, "Itís footage of an unfinished game". Which doesn't exclude it from a)being the unfinished Walking Dead game and b) giving an idea of the type of gameplay.

I still don't see what makes you think open world. I WANT that background we see to be explorable but there is nothing to say it's not just backdrop.

I think it will be broken into explorable "hubs". Depending on how large they are, it still can be cool.
