Valve Removes War-Z From Steam, Apologizes And Offers Refunds

For those of you zombie fanatics who have purchased Hammerpoint’s War-Z game on Steam and are unhappy with your purchase, Valve has announced that refunds will be issued and that War Z has been pulled from the Steam sale. This is, however, only until the developers behind War-Z iron out all of the issues that the game seems to be experiencing and can rectify some of the false advertisement regarding it’s key features.

But that’s not all. Valve has gone as far as releasing this statement regarding the matter:

From time to time a mistake can be made and one was made by prematurely issuing a copy of War Z for sale via Steam. We apologize for this and have temporary removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build. Those who purchased the game and wish to continue playing it via Steam may do so. Those who purchased the title via Steam and are unhappy with what they received may seek a refund by creating a ticket at our support site here.

Again, we apologize any inconvenience.

If you have purchased War-Z, are you going to take Valve up on their offer and get a refund? Let us know in the comment section below!

    from the alpha gameplay i saw months ago i knew it wasn’t gonna be that good

    This is a fakegame slapped together by fly-by-night con artists Sergey Titov & crew. If you purchased this game through Steam, get a refund NOW before its too late. They’re offering them. If you purchased through Paypal, open a dispute NOW before Paypal freezes their account — its coming.

    @Joel no offense my man you’re remarkably out of touch considering you’re supposed to be up on videogame news. The backlash is massive on this one, its not just about Steam distro, its a pattern of behavior from the wholly obnoxious Sergey Titov (Hammerpoint) since day one. Calling the playerbase “[email protected]”, censoring and deleting any criticism or questions raised in their forums about missing features, ranting and raving on twitter.

    Valve has made followup comments that ever allowing the game on Steam was a mistake. WarZ will NEVER be back on Steam. Valve recognized the massive backlash, and are beginning to see what everyone else has seen for a long time. Sergey saw the overnight sensation DayZ became, took his existing POS WarInc game and re-skinned a few areas to be zombie themed to attempt to cash in on the DayZ craze.

    WAR Z? LOL! copying the name of a successful mod in hopes that your shitty game will get sales? What a bunch of fucks.

    • Consumer

      That’s not what you should be angry about, you know…Also, DayZ wasn’t the first game to incorporate “Z” or “Zed” to mean “zombies”.

      • nate

        I’m not angry, I just think the people who made this game are a joke. DayZ was the first popular game to do so.

      • pumpkin

        Fools DayZ is not agame its a MOD for Arma 2.

    • actually warz was supposedly in development before dayz just saying

      • nate

        says the liars who are making it. Their website, facebook page, and youtube account were all created after dayz became popular. The lead guy has yet to create anything but a turd of a game. He just wants some attention.

  • Rightfully so. You can’t get away with posting bullshit and false advertising, that is illegal. Thank you Valve for showing you had some sense.

  • PapaDragon

    This guy says it like a boss!

  • DayZ FTW

  • I have this game in mine Steam Libary its Ok. just need to be re-build. dont understand why gamers getting so crazy about it , the Value of the game was also not so tight 🙂

  • Slenderman

    WarZ is a joke. I signed up for a beta pass a long time ago in hopes it would just be a more action packed DayZ. Turns out that to get beta access you had to pay 50 dollars. What a fucking joke.
