Look What’s Back!

The War Z is back on Steam. Hopefully Hammerpoint learned its lesson about false advertising.

Steam is sometimes a very exciting place.  Generally the excitement comes in the form of flash sales, offering widely-desired gaming indulgences for more modest fees than anywhere else is able to match.  With The War Z, that excitement was instead caused by false advertising in a situation that got bad enough that the game was pulled from Valve’s service with no-questions-asked refunds offered.

Now the game is back on Steam and ready for purchase.  The page for the game shows more than a few changes from the original scandal-crafting version.  No specific mention is made of the size of the game’s world (huge open environment!) or the number of players per server.

Even more noticeable is how the site doesn’t mention the planned experience or skill systems as it did before.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  Where before it touted a skill system that wasn’t implemented in any form, now it actively promotes not having classes or experience or skills as a feature!

Honestly, it isn’t anything particularly shocking or surprising after the launch, but buyers beware.  The War Z earned that Metacritic score.
