Controversial MMO ‘The War Z’ Renamed ‘Infestation: Survivor Stories’

Infestation

Hammerpoint Interactive’s controversial post-apocalyptic MMO The War Z caused quite a stir last year after its developer lied about the game’s features and added microtransactions like “pay to revive” after it reached the top of the Steam charts. I’m not sure what’s gone on with it since then, except for now it’s being referred to as Infestation: Survivor Stories.

Last I saw the game it bordered on unplayable. I’m not sure if this new title is an attempt at putting a little space between it and that other MMO it tried so hard to emulate, or if it’s to further separate it from its controversial first incarnation, but really, does it even matter?
