The War Z released on Steam

it is cheap at $15. still, i'm going to wait for winter sale to see if there are any specials though, or indie bundles.

Save 10% on The War Z on Steam

edit:

apparently they were very misleading with their steam description

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 : gaming

Steam Community :: The War Z

The Bore Z - YouTube

Game is just a re-skin of War Inc., and War Inc. is terrible.
Micro-transactions is predatory.

Prediction: Game will not be supported 6 months after release - which is how long it usually takes for all hype to go down and truth to fully come out and all fanboy revenue to end.
This is not a company out to deliver a long term project - they are in for the money grab based on the high demand for Survival Horror (STALKER, Metro 2033, Slender, DayZ etc.)

Game is just a re-skin of War Inc., and War Inc. is terrible.
Micro-transactions is predatory (pay cash for single-use, drop-on-death items in a buggy survival game? brilliant).

Prediction: Game will not be supported 6 months after release - which is how long it usually takes for all hype to go down and truth to fully come out and all fanboy revenue to end.
This is not a company out to deliver a long term project - they are in for the money grab based on the high demand for Survival Horror (STALKER, Metro 2033, Slender, DayZ etc.)

There is also the issue of hacking - the game is vulnerable and only has an excuse of an anti-hacking attempt.
Will only be playable on totally private servers for your personal closely moderated community.
Such private servers are not available on "release" (the "it's not a release" but pay us on Steam anyway thing).

Edit... and done:
RPS - The War Z no longer available on Steam

Wait... it gets even better:
http://www.pcgamesn.com/article/how-big-war-zs-map

The current map is between 10 and 25 square kilometers - it's nowhere near what they claim.
It's also pathetically barren and devoid of objects - even for a post-apocalyptic setting.
