The War Z back on Steam, special refund period for disgruntled customers ends

The War Z

By on February 27, 2013 at 4:51 pm

Late last year, Valve took the extraordinary step of removing The War Z from sale on Steam, as the game came under attack for continued, shall we say… exaggerations about its features and state of completion. Valve then took the further step of offering refunds to users who felt they had been deceived by these exaggerations. Now, for those deceived players, the honeymoon is over.

Steam’s news feed announced that “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 War Z is now back on Steam for $15. We called it a boring, soul-less apocalypse where you could actively pay to win. Try it for yourself, if you’re keen.

Yeah I think I will just stay clear of this after last time ;)


I didn’t buy it, play it or otherwise have anything to do with it and I still want a refund.

Thanks man!


Tim Colwill,

No probs ;) I had just edited it out of my post so that we could pretend it didn’t happen, but now you posted this lol :P


Oooooh they changed the store page?

Must be a good game now, right?


I wouldnt touch it with a 10ft pole. The bloke basically flogged all the hard work of Day Z creators.


i’m gunna buy it to see just how bad it is.

Dude, no, don’t. We did that with OP:FP Dragon Rising, it was hilarious for about 10 minutes, and then I just felt sad. Sad for my wallet, for the developer and that I had more crap clogging up my Steam account.


Don’t touch this game, recently they have been trying to scam players into paying for their server hosting.

Not even worth buying as a joke


turns out i couldn’t convince any of my mates to go in also anyway, and im sure playing by myself wouldn’t be fun.
