The developers have finally released a fix for the issues we've been having recently with an Updated Launcher, but you'll need to manually download the file first and run it!
Dear WarZ Survivors,
We have recently updated our WarZ Game Launcher. If you are experiencing Connection issues and your WarZ Launcher is reporting that it is unable to connect, please visit this link and download the updated Launcher:
You will only be required to download the Setup File, you will not need to download the entire game again.
Please download this setup file and run the installer. You should use the same directory that the WarZ is currently installed to (setup will install into appropriate folder by default unless you previously installed the game into a custom folder). Steam users: The game will be updated through Steam shortly.
For Steam Users - Make sure you select the Steam Apps folder with The Warz in it when installing. For me it's, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The War Z\
UPDATE - The website and forums have also been moved to a new domain.
