The War Z dev issues full apology following removal of game from Steam

Comment
The War Z dev issues full apology following removal of game from SteamIn a lengthy open letter to The War Z community, Hammerpoint Interactive's executive producer Sergey Titov personally apologised for the series of unfortunate events that led to the removal of the zombie survival FPS from Steam. It's a frank listing of errors, a self-flagellating missive in which Titov claims total responsibility for his own "arrogance", which brought about a "perfect storm that affected all of [The War Z's] community members". The War Z has been mired in controversy since launching on Steam on December 17, after promising missing features, accusing players of misreading the game's store page, coming up short on their advertised map size and mistreating critical forum members

A rocky start, to say the least. But hey, at least this particular stable door is finally closed. The entire letter can be read below.

The WarZ developers “don’t mind being compared to DayZ at all”

Comment
The WarZ developers “don’t mind being compared to DayZ at all”Sergey Titov, The War Z’s executive producer, has responded to the Mexican wave of raised eyebrows that met footage of his apocalypse survival sim and its apparent similarity to DayZ.

“We don’t mind being compared to DayZ at all," said Titov. “In fact we are fans of the mod. Ultimately, we hope that gamers will end up playing both The War Z and the DayZ standalone."

The War Z developers copied League of Legend's Terms of Service, forgot to take out references to Riot Games

Comment
The War Z developers copied League of Legend's Terms of Service, forgot to take out references to Riot GamesThe War Z has received flack for being very similar to Day Z, some calling it a simple clone. Whether or not that's the case, it looks like they've been copying Riot, makers of League of Legends. The War Z's Terms of Service make explicit references to League of Legends' currency system and there's evidence suggesting Hammerpoint have redacted even more explicit mentions of the game since their copy/paste job was discovered.

Read on for further details.

The War Z footage displays solitude, a fireman's hat, buildable barricades, and bugs. Seems an awful lot like DayZ

The War Z footage displays solitude, a fireman's hat, buildable barricades, and bugs. Seems an awful lot like DayZDayZ hinted at the zombie game we always wanted, a pervasive world where we could starve, become ill, and, of course, face off against hordes of the walking dead - all while under threat from your fellow player. Well, The War Z is taking a run at the same idea with slightly different emphasises, the space between spawning to armed survivor is shorter. And the guns, once you have them, are more customisable.

Why am I telling you all this when I can just show you?
