Isn't this that game that alot of people are having issues with? Not 100% up to speed on it, the name just looks familiar.

Don't buy it. Train wreck of a game and devs are lying their arses off.

Yes, that's the one. It's a "Hell, no!" game. Just don't support the developers.

Not sure. I've only watched some youtube videos of it. Not heard anything about problems.

Never heard of it. Is this the stand-alone version of the DayZ mod for ARMA2? Or is this another game?

It is NOT DayZ. It's a pathetic ripoff that is trying to cash in on DayZ's popularity.

If you want to see an overview of the game, and its numerous flaws, TotalBiscuit did a video of it which I found to be quite hilarious.

Even if its a currently a ripoff and its current state is bad, I like the idea of War Z much more than Day Z. I like progression. War Z offers that or should once its done. Day Z is still a slow addon and nothing more. It's built on a flawed engine, at least flawed in the sense that it's not well suited for what Day Z tries to accomplish. If the features that War Z claims to have ever make it to Day Z, I will start playing Day Z again. Until then, will hold off buying this game until the forums for it turn around.

Wow, thank you for that. This game looks horrible. Feel sorry for anyone who bought into it.

Steam pulled the game and is issuing full refunds for anybody who wants it. :)

It's bad enough to make a blatant rip-off, but to release such garbage is unforgivable.

Fixed it for you, I think you got your games confused :D

tbh I'm glad its gone from Steam, I have been pondering buying the game so long but seen nothing but bad coverage. The biggest travesty is the shady way in which the developers dealt with people complaining about the game, banning people from ever owning their games, not refunding money, deleting posts
