Hammerpoint Interactive’s The War Z has found its way back to Steam after months of outrage over the game late last year.
Announced on Steam, The War Z is once again available for $14.99. Considering what happened with the game a few months back, Valve made sure to address those issues in their announcement:
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.
The survival-horror MMO made headlines towards the end of 2012 when the game was released with a slew of bugs along with a “pay-to-play” system that had players pay to revive themselves right away rather than wait several hours to respawn. Not just that, players that tried to get a refund for the game over the various bugs making it unplayable for some were denied refunds. Feedback for the game reached a point where Valve had to intervene and pulled the game from Steam within days of adding it.
