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.

No matter how you look at it, this game is still an outright scam. The forum idiots ban anyone linking to all the horrible reviews this game has gotten.

Anyone who buys this game or even plays it is an idiot because they are supporting really bad game design.

Same could be said about HUNDREDS of AAA titles - most by UBI Soft and EA.

Just the perfect quote.

As for this blatant DayZ ripoff, I am stunned Steam has allowed them back onto the store.

I find it hilarious WarZ has more people playing it than A:CM.
It gives a good indication as to how bad A:CM is. I also find it interesting that the Wii U release is supposedly next month and yet most online stores don't have it and even those that do don't have a release date for it. At this point it's looking like they'll abandon the Wii U release altogether, which means sales must be REALLY bad.

At this point, whoever STILL spends money on War Z deserves to lose whatever they pay.

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.

This game was/is a waste of my time and a waste of the money I was suckered into paying for it! I had my suspicions & reservations when they first started marketing it, but I took a leap of faith, when I should have followed my instincts like I did with A:CM.

The bottom line is that the game is flat, un-immersive, has bad audio and uninspired graphics. The game sucked, still sucks, and always will suck!

And NO, of course I am not bitter……


The game was 1/4th or less of the cost of ACM.....for the price paid, the game is fine. There are far WORSE games that cost a hell of a lot more. It is a survival zombie shooter. I don't really care about the other stuff....

That's so sad - unfortunately they'll take it to mean that PC Gaming is dead and blame the platform and/or piracy so I can't exactly be as happy as I would like to be.

The War Z though, did anyone else notice the glitched out zombie in the trailer at the 20 second mark? Yikes! Not a good sign.

I can handle a shitty game....shitty games happen. What gets under my skin is the way Sergey Titov handled the situation. I completely believe that the game is salvageable. I simply am not motivated to give them a second chance and I don't understand why anybody else would. Too much other stuff in the gaming and entertainment world competing for our money and time. Admittedly, this particular genre is young and the pickings are thin, which is why I am sure there are plenty of people that will go back regardless of how they feel about the situation.

They have done a lot of patches and although good news, they haven't addressed exploits AT ALL yet. The forums are pretty bad...
