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?!
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. Financial information, fortunately, is still safe and sound (except, you know, for the fact that it’s presumably being spent on The War Z), but far too many other crucial pieces of information have been compromised. As a result, the more-than-a-little wobbly zombie survivor’s been forced offline for the time being.
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 whole lot.” You will, however, notice the omission of some flat-out untrue promises from War Z’s last wibbly wobbly go-’round.
