MS publishing Undead Labs zombie survival games.

'Class3' will be an Xbox Live Arcade title. It's an open-world online game. (released first)

'Class4' will be a full game. It's a persistance open-world (very large) online game.

Class4 is the 'MMO' Xbox 360 players have been asking for.

Big difference. Class4 will be an 'MMO' while Class3 is online Arcade game. Class3 will most likely be on the best Arcade games due to it's budget and quality employees. "Class3 runs on your Xbox 360 and supports 1-2 players via Xbox LIVE or on the same screen, while Class4 will provide a much larger server-hosted world for thousands of simultaneous players". No pay structure for Class4 has been decided yet.

Class4's world will dwarf anything you've ever played on a console. It's like GTA or Oblivion times 100.

The official response was "No comment". They also stated Class3 will help speed up development of Class4 because it uses a lot of the same technology.

sounds awesome....i hope theres no pay structure for class 4...i cant afford to pay monthly fees...class 3 sounds cool also...

Class4 is planned, but, let's hope Class3 sells. If it didn't sells, MS probably will pull the plug.

BTW, did anyone know NeoSaurs is Free MS MMORPG already? It is a sneaky free MS MMORPG game sneaked into the market.

ive been following undead labs for a while now, they answered one of my questions, that it is going to be a monthly subscription and that it is going to be player skill based an dnot level based. i havent asked them anything else since. the monthly thing puts me off a little but i didnt expect anything else

that might be a little premature from 2 sentences of text

granted, i am very excited, but im not going to blow my expectations out of the water, which can then only lead to disappointment

This game will easily have the largest open world of any Xbox 360 game.

Read an article in some magazine about this months ago, I can't remember which one. Regardless, a Zombie MMO with those Dev's is going to be a huge hit and an awesome game.. there goes my life once this drops(damn).

based on what information exactly? is there a source? or are these random hopes?

Because Class4 will provide a "large server-hosted world for thousands of simultaneous players". That's a direct quote from Jeff Strain.

what they say they are doing, and what they actually do are usually two very different things. Remember, its the devs job to talk the game up. Im not saying dont be exctied and anxious, but just relax on the "GTA or Oblivion times 100"

You've never played a persistent, open-world MMO before, have you?

Undead Labs has stated Class4 will be a persistent open-world 'MMO' that supports thousands of players. I'm not sure why screenshots would change that.

The head of Undead Labs is known for 'walking the talk' and has assembled an all-star staff. I'll believe him until he announces it's not so.

I wouldn't call anyone that had anything to do with Guild Wars "all star staff"

I'll be interested when we see what the game plays like.

Are we talking about the same game? Guild Wars has a Metacritic score of 89 (fantastic score for any MMO). And Jeff Strain was lead programmer of WoW as well.
