Hot News for WarZ! - New anti cheat : Punkbuster

It has been a long time coming, but WarZ the online survival zombie apocalypse game will at some point have a proper anti-cheat system, which has been seriously lacking thus far. The cheating has put many people off from the game, including myself. Even with all it's updates including new graphics, voip, it mattered not if people were cheating. But today we've got the news annoucement most of us have been waiting for. OP Productions LLC has contracted with Even Balance, Inc. to integrate our PunkBuster™ Anti-Cheat software into the survival mmo Zombie Game known as The War Z, developed by Hammerpoint Interactive. 

When we will see Punkbuster in game? Soon I expect!
