The open beta test for ZOZ: Final Hour will begin on Google Play in Brazil and Indonesia, with other areas to follow, according to the announcement by NetEase Games. Last October, the game’s Closed Beta Test began in Brazil.
Experience a realistic post-apocalyptic atmosphere
The game’s unique feature is the transformation from a man to a zombie. In ZOZ, players take on the role of a mercenary and travel to San Yager, a zombie-infested city, in pursuit of a mysterious material known as Blood Crystal. When they’ve gathered enough of it, their mission shifts to evacuation. If a player is slain, the Merc transforms into a Zombie Merc and is permitted to continue the game with a new goal: turning the other players into their own species.
The battleground is set in a colorful cityscape with hospitals, shopping malls, and even an amusement park to create a genuine post-apocalyptic environment. Players will be dumped into a battlefield made up of seven randomly created plots when the game starts. Only hostile zombies remain when the once-vibrant urban landscape is deserted and destroyed-this stark contrast produces a powerful sense of immersion. According to Brian, the developer of ZOZ: Final Hour, in his final developer’s letter:
The game is powered by a NetEase-developed gaming engine that creates dynamic and realistic light and shadow effects in the game by imitating real-world city design and employing next-generation rendering technology to increase the game’s realism and engagement. Players from the above-mentioned regions can download ZOZ: Final Hour from Google Play here.
