The War Z is back on Steam.
Last December, Hammerpoint Interactive's zombie survival MMO The War Z (not to be confused with Bohemia Interactive's zombie survival mod turned standalone game DayZ) was pulled from Steam just a day after its store page went live. Users who purchased the game immediately felt buyer's remorse after discovering various discrepancies between the actual game and the product description provided on the store page and levied complaints against the game. After a brief investigation, Valve saw fit to pull the game from Steam.
Now, The War Z has made a re-appearance on Steam with a short explanation from Valve. "The War Z is now available for purchase on Steam," reads the announcement. "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."
The issues that The War Z purchasers had with the game have been pulled. The original offending descriptions that caused the game's removal in the first place have been altered, including claims such as "Each world has areas between 100 to 400 square kilometers."
Despite the changes, Steam users still aren't satisfied. There have been quite a few topics posted on The War Z Steam discussions area complaining about the game, including another petition to remove further claims of "false advertising."
