Heard something about it last night on IGN.
I don't know about others but i am looking forward to this, it can be good if it's done right.

Let's wait and see.

More and more games are f2p, so if this goes on you will be looking at your book more than playing.

Just wanted to say, tested this game ~2hrs and its crap. A game like this is not needed, theres too much games of the same gamesplay already and this here doesnt stand out.

I want to like F2P games but they all end up being pay to win. Plus the fact that I don't really like playing online with other people. I'd rather have an extensive single player campaign.

This game looks like it would be entertaining, however with the F2P moniker I won't even bother.

I was gifted some on Steam and tried it out. While not bad it will get boring quickly i think. Controls are a bit clunky.

I played it a bit the other day as well. It's not great but it is ok with a group of friends. The scavenger mode is interesting. It puts 4 teams of 4 against each other to control capture points on the map while fighting zombies and each other and trying to collect as many supplies as possible.
The crafting is another nice touch. You earn blueprints and random parts while playing that can eventually be crafted into better weapons or upgrades. Or you can just buy them with real money too.
