The development team behind Project Zomboid released a new blog update today that details, among other things, the addition of a persistent online multiplayer mode!

In a three part video series (part one is below), the development team teases and shows off some of the building blocks of the game's multiplayer.

Unfortunately, they are still working on some anti-cheat measures and advice players to only stick to whitelisted servers with passwords until those are finalized. They're also working on a way to get split-screen local multiplayer to work seamlessly with the online multiplayer once the online component is added.

The blog continues on to mention that NPCs are still also in development for the game. They also provide a handy link to the changes coming in the Build 22 update. Project Zomboid is available on Steam Early Access for $15 (USD).
