Zombie Apocalyspe Simulator.
Neat.

I really am eager to play this game with friends I know, because if you have 1 dumbass the whole team is compromised.
But I heard there would be a "rating" system of some sort so that teamkilling griefers would be avoided.

Been following this for ages now and it really does look great.
Hopefully I can get a few mates to pick it up too.

I have to agree 100% this is what i've been talking about for years and now it's only a while before it comes out (hopefully)

Do you have to play with 3 friends? Or will the AI director fill in any missing peoples?

This is what Resident Evil outbreak should have been.

I can't wait for this game, any idea when it's being released? I couldn't find anything on the internets

This looks seriously good tbh, as long as you can have AI players, and be able to choose who you play with (i.e. be get rid of idiots), it'll be epic.

Veles - all that's known atm is late-2008 iirc.

QFT. I think their record of not releasing stuff before it's finished works very well for them. Better than the EA/Ubisoft tactic of finishing it after a consumer beta test...

Zombies + Co-op + Valve = Perfection

Wow, I didn't realize that this would be coming out for X360 too! I might just have to check it out then.
BlueTrin 17th May 2008, 21:39 Quote
I assume that the game fully support Valve friends to play in coop ?

"As I mentioned to Chet when I interviewed him, Valve has a reputation among games developers for testing games absolutely to death"

Pity they didn't do this in 2005 with "Day of Defeat Source"

Stick to your team-mates in spawn - check, poke your rifle through someone's chest and miss them when you fire - check

Still waiting for that latest update guys.... :)

Seriously, this looks like a cool game though.

No matter what people say, the Source engine is really starting to look aged.

It is a bit, but still going pretty well. After all, it's still gameplay that makes a great game. :D

I wonder if this will be the last game to use the source engine, or if they will drag it out a few more years to get all the HL 2's under the same engine.
And I do think this game will be out this year, it's been pushed back heaps already... It feels like the game of 08 to me :D

It has to come out this Q3 2008.

It was already slated to release early 2007 or something.
