The War Z Returns to Steam; Refunds End

Steam News announces that The War Z is now once again available for purchase on Steam, following issues that caused them to stop selling the game "prematurely" late last year. They also state this means they are no longer providing refunds to customers dissatisfied with the initial release:

The War Z is now available for purchase on Steam. Valve and Hammerpoint Interactive collaborated to address community feedback, update the Steam store page, and make the title available for purchase worldwide. In addition, a patch has been released to update existing customers. As such, the special refund offering extended for The War Z Steam customers who previously purchased the title has concluded.

LOL, check the store description, they removes all numerical references, like to the km size of maps, how many players on a server, etc. They also removed any reference to being able to use private servers. Presumably this is now the actual release, and not the "foundation release" ?
I wonder if anyone at valve bothered to test the game this time before putting it back?

Wow, just wow. I can't believe it but you're right, there are <500 people playing A:CM right now. I assume that must be in my region? North America?
No, steam player numbers are global on all steam owners. I don't know if ACM is steamworks though, non steamworks games, steam can only track steam players.
