A little game called Infestation: Survivor Stories, previously known as The War Z, caused quite a lot of controversy in 2013 and was abandoned, but George Romero’s son is on board to revive the game with a reboot.
The reason Infestation caused such an outcry a few years ago was due to the developers of the game lying or “misled” about features that the game didn’t have, resulting in Valve removing the game from Steam.
George Cameron Romero, son of George A. Romero, will be amongst the creative team in bringing back to life the zombie survival game, and although not announced as one, it will technically be a carry on from the first game.
The new game will be called Romero’s Aftermath and new developer Free Reign East are keen to deliver on this project and steer clear of all the controversial mistakes made by the previous developers. “The development team behind Infestation wanted to create a new experience for Infestation/WarZ players making sure to keep best parts of the game that made it popular, while avoiding controversial decisions and plain stupid mistakes that were previously made,” they explained to Eurogamer. It looks highly hopeful that this time around the game will get a fair chance.
If you’re interested in the game, which Free Reign East described as “potentially one of the greatest zombie survival games on the market,” just follow the link and click the package you want. Prices start from $14.99 up to $49.99. Those of you who were Infestation players with active Pioneer or Legendary accounts can get the game for free!
