The War Z Changes Its Name, If Nothing Else

Supremely conspicuous online zombie-me-do game The War Z is no longer called The War Z. After what I can only assume was a drunken stumble to the Deed Poll offices, it's now going by the name of Infestation: Survivor Stories. Phew, that means the litany of dreadful nonsense that's surrounded the game since it first appears no longer applies, right?!

Please, No War: The War Z Catastrophically Hacked

The astounding saga of The War Z continues, but this time, with a twist: the rank odor of awfulness isn't coming from inside some fissure in the game's rotting flesh. Rather, an external force - data-hungry hackers - decided to stir up trouble, and boy did it ever hit the jackpot. In short, if you ever signed up for The War Z, go change everything.…

Of Course You Know, This Means: War Z’s Back On Steam

Oh boy, gaming's favorite brain-dissolving apocalyptic disaster is back! And in the game, naturally. After a sojourn away from Steam due to excessively shady dealings and unforgivably poor quality, The War Z's been re-listed on Valve's ubiquitous storefront. So then, the natural question: what's changed? Well, this probably warrants further investigation (yuck) inside the game, but for now, the answer appears to be "not a…

Feature: The Walking Dread

Wot I Like Best About The War Z!!

There's been an awful lot of chatter about The War Z of late. Removed from Steam for not being in a state Valve deem suitable for sale, making false claims on their store page (then blaming the customers for it, somehow), banning people for criticising the game, stealing the League Of Legends Terms Of Service, and most recently adding an amazing line to their TOS…

Zombie: The War Z No Longer Available On Steam

Crikey - Kotaku have just reported that The War Z has just been removed from Steam. There was word earlier today that Valve were looking into forum moderation issues regarding the game, but people were hopeful they'd dig somewhat deeper into the real issues that had been raised, regarding the apparent false advertising of features on its store page. Those have been changed since, but…

Umm, OK: The War Z Is Out Now, I Think

Oh, hm. Well, this comes as something of a surprise. Not terribly long ago, The War Z ventured out from the safe embrace of alpha into the unknown reaches of beta, and now it's... live? I think? The undead-infested MMO shooter's shambled onto Steam, and Hammerpoint's declaring this a "Foundation Release." Which - from what I gather - is like a normal release, but with…

The War Z Beta Iz Ztarting Zoon

If The War Z were some form of night-walking terror creature that's traditionally been slotted into either fast or slow categories – let's say a gerbil – it'd definitely end up as the former. Hammerpoint's permadeath-optional zombie MMO burst onto the scene earlier this year, and it's kept up a rather unbelievable pace ever since. And now, both alpha and beta are right around the…

Pre-Undead: The War Z Beta Is Proving Popular

The War Z isn't the same game as Day Z. That's the sort of mantra I have to recite to myself, especially a week after I confused Watch Dogs with Sleeping Dogs. Videogames - get more distinct names! War Z is of course an MMO about zombies, rather than... whatever genre Day Z fits into. And they've just announced they've had more than 100,000 registrations…

Deja Vu Z: The War Z Has Zombies, Permadeath

The universe is weird sometimes. See, The War Z is not - nor, based on development time, could it be - entirely a Day Z clone. Yes, it's an MMO with (optional) permadeath set in a  "post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested world where other players can prove to be a greater threat than the undead hordes that populate the land," but it began development last year and is…
