Open-world sandbox zombie game

If DayZ doesn't do it for you, they're making a zombie survival MMO with PvZ and PvP rolled into one.

So yes, now you can't say there isn't an open-world sandbox zombie game.

You can check out "the days ahead", a DayZ video serie on youtube.

Your concept has been thought of by everyone under the sun, but it would be too confusing and probably too difficult for casual gamers.

An AAA sandbox survival zombie game will never get made for that reason. You'll have to settle for a smaller developer to experiment with it with a much lower budget... but sandbox games are huge undertakings.

I've been waiting for this since I got my PS2.

Rockstar could probably pull it off. All they have to do is basically recreate a grand theft auto world, replace pedestrians with walking zombies, and just add the need for your player to group up with people to survive.

PC only.

PS: ArmA 2 DayZ as other people have suggested is probably better.

Yes, Day Z is pretty much the exact game you're looking for TC

Bare in mind it's still in Alpha so it's a bit glitchy. You may want to wait a bit for them to patch it up a bit.

I heard Day Z might be its on game much like how Counter Strike turned out. I'm waiting for that or DayZ to go beta (more stable).

Also the ARMA controls I hear are very difficult to understand.

Day Z would be sweet if the aiming mechanics weren't terrible and the zombies weren't stupid fast zombies.

I'd like one that could handle hordes of slow zombies.

after L4D I can't play any games with slow zombies in them seriously.

Didn't they pretty much do that with UN?
