Angry Fans Call Out ‘The War Z’ Dev For Misleading Steam Description

Gamers sure are a vocal bunch. Good thing too, because this time around a group of players have found developer Hammerpoint Interactive’s description of the Steam version of The War Z to be more than a little deceitful. Yesterday, the game made its way to Steam, and it looks like the dev might have fibbed in the features they said would be in the Steam version, leading several players to go so far as to request its removal from Steam. More after the break.

From the Reddit thread, which is on its way to reaching 2,700 comments at the time of this writing:

Regarding the first point, Hammerpoint has called this version of the game a “Foundation Release,” which means its been improved over the beta version, and will continue to be tweaked in the coming months. I haven’t played it yet, but I’m interested. However, this doesn’t look good for the game or its developer. Hopefully they can get this smoothed out before it does too much damage.

Anyone here played The War Z yet, and if you have, what do you think of all this?

    It looks interesting, but I’ll definitely be avoiding it now. Why didn’t they just wait until they actually implemented the features they’re boasting about?
