References to League of Legends have been discovered in The War Z’s end user licencing agreement, according to a post on Reddit.
Accompanying the post is what is alleged to be a screengrab of the offending part of the EULA.
If this was indeed the case, the implication would be that The War Z developer Hammerpoint Interactive copy-pasted League of Legends’ agreement, but missed some references to the latter game when substituting in its own.
In related news, The War Z’s executive producer Sergey Titov has said that his studio does not mind DayZ comparisons, and in fact are all “fans of the mod”.
“It’s difficult to compare at the moment, but, though there are similarities, we tried to create a game that was a little bit easier to access and play, and that would allow players to be creative and create their own scenarios,” said Titov.
“We aren’t looking to be better than or displace DayZ at all – there is definitely room for two great games in the same genre and we think that the gaming audience will agree.”
“Ultimately, we hope that gamers will end up playing both The War Z and the DayZ standalone.”
The War Z is currently in closed alpha testing ahead of a Halloween beta launch.
