Hammerpoint Interactive is launching the Foundation Release of its zombie survival MMO The War Z on the Steam platform. The online game boasts a current community of more than 600,000 registered players, with more than 150,000 playing daily. The Foundation Release introduces a bevy of core gameplay features and, moving forward, Hammerpoint will continue to develop new content and features for the game.
The War Z is an online, multiplayer, survival-simulation game set in an open world infested with zombies. Players are thrust into this post-apocalyptic world five years after a viral outbreak that ravaged the human population and left, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Hordes of undead zombies roam the cities, and the few remaining human beings have devolved into a lawless, nomadic society where the sole objective is to survive at any cost. Players must use skill and cunning in order to acquire food, weapons and other supplies necessary for survival. While navigating the vast landscape, they will discover cities teeming with the undead as well as other players that may or may not be friendly.
“The Steam platform gives us the ability to reach a huge audience of PC gamers and working with their team has been great,” said Sergey Titov, executive producer for The War Z. “Now that we’ve reached the Foundation Release milestone we will continue to work, as promised, to add features and content that will satisfy our community and keep them playing.”

Now, here’s the rub. Over at the gaming Reddit, a user named xlephon says, “WarZ releases on Steam: Devs blatantly lie about included features, and neglect to mention game isn’t complete. If this isn’t false advertising I don’t know what is.” They also break down the problems with the features here.
So just know what you’re getting into!
