Hammerpoint Interactive has released some more information on the upcoming Foundation Release for The War Z, including some details on the features that will be implemented in Foundation.
Posting on the War Z forums last night, Executive Producer Sergey Titov announced that not only would the Foundation Release be coming in the very near future, but also that The War Z will be released on Steam at the same time. This is great news for users who prefer to do as much of their gaming through Valve's digital delivery and community platform as possible.
As for the Foundation Release, the following features will be ready to go live with this release:
- Server rentals
- New set of building blocks ( aka barricades and USABLE objects like hydroponics systems )
- Call for help functionality
- Accessing your inventory from Safe Settlement without logging out of the game
- New weapons
- Crosshair option in third-person view
Additionally, Titov announced that before the Foundation Release goes live, Hammerpoint will be issuing a full character wipe for one last time. Any credits you have used will be returned to your account, plus some additional as a thank you for playing from Hammerpoint.
There are a ton of new features, updates and tweaks coming in the future in addition to the Foundation Release and Steam arrival. Check out the link below to read Sergey Titov's full forum post for information!
