Hammerpoint Interactive has revealed via a new press release that their currently in-development zombie survival MMO The War Z has now officially shed its alpha testing stage and is now in beta development. Players currently participating in the games development will also find several new items, characters and the final areas of the "Colorado" map opened up as of a recent patch.
Hammerpoint has also revealed that more than 500,000 players have been recruited to the buy-to-play shooter MMO, a number that any developer would be happy to have. The latest update has included several key features such as clan support (chat, markers and tags), a new chat system, new marketplace items and new on-screen cues for players to navigate around the map.
