Sigh, still reporting on this without a Console Only tag.

The vast majority of mmos are PC required, therfore a significant percentage of your readers probably don't own a console. Those readers might like to know its a waste of time reading this.

@FrostPaw
and i say keep these articles coming, with a project this early in its production lifecycle, heck, it doesn't even have a name. It may yet be decided to bring it to pc, my guess is its about funding. So if at the end of its life they decide to port it to PC, i like that i heard of it already. my thought was,,,someone actually looks at those tags? :)

@FrostPaw That's a huge stretch. Every PC gamer I know owns at least 1 console.

@FrostPaw

The reason is because Class 3 is going to be a console title. It is Class 4 that will be the MMO.

So thier tag is not incorrect.

although I'm not 'thrilled' at a zombie mmo, it doesn't have Dwarves or Elves, so I'll probably give it a try based on that alone.

Companies still releasing new AAA mmos with elves and dwarves in 2011/2012 simply need to get a clue what the playerbase is already tired of.

The graphics in this game look very fresh and having that day/night cycle is key.

oh, anyone looking for a good anime series about zombies, check out "High School of the Dead" from Japan.

It has a lot of typical titallation, but aside from that the story and art is really well done. I'm not even a big zombie fan but I actually enjoyed that series

@real65rcncom

ya the fan service was gratuitous but skipping over that crap the story was solid and had real emotion to it.

there has been more info about the game
class 3 is the console rpg game class 4 is the mmo

from an interview at tentonhammer, this was said
At the Lab we refer to the game we are making as a “survival sandbox” game.

We want to drop you into the heart of a zombie apocalypse and let you put your personal survival plan to the test in an open world,
with no predefined quest paths, no levels, no corridors, and no canned character progression; just you, your plan, your equipment, and your wits.

I don't get why people are getting so hung up on the console part. I'm not gonna disagree that's there's more business politics with consoles, but it's not gonna keep me from playing the game.

I hope UL succeeds, the game looks to be coming along nicely.

Game sounds awesome. Can't wait.

And the fact it's on consoles is refreshing. PC MMOs, as a whole, have grown stale. Maybe it will take console MMOs to change PC MMOs.

I gotta ask what exactly are these guys so thrilled about and what have they worked on in such a short amount of time?

Yeah, the video links to lighting effects of day/evening but...we still haven't gotten much information out of these guys. They are either playing their version of "Smoke and Mirrors" or just releasing these silly statements that give the reader no real "beefy" info.

This is Xbox 360(Class4) and XBLA (Class3) exclusive so instead of saying "consoles" you should say Xbox 360 or it will get PS3 owners excited for nothing.
