Infestation: Survivor Stories, formerly known as The War Z, was fully released late last year and has surprisingly grown to over 1.3 million registered users since the launch, according to publisher OP Productions.
I’m saying “surprisingly” because this open-worldsurvival game was plagued with controversies from the start. You name it, it’s dealt with it. Infestation has been accused of fraud, trademark issues, hacks, and it was even reported that developers bullied customers who complained about the game. The list of issues goes on and on, but it looks like things have changed since the developers at Hammerpoint Interactive listened to community feedback. Any great suggestion or idea customers throw at them will now be considered for add-on content, which is due out this summer.
Regardless of the all the bad that went on, statistics released today prove that Infestation made a nice comeback over the months. There are now 1.3 million registered players who average more than 95 hours in the game, and more than 100,000 play it daily. It’s clear that Infestation is doing something right these days. Good customer support and game tweaking goes a long way, and maybe now is a great time to give this one a try, if you haven’t already done so.
Infestation is currently available for $14.99 at Steam.
About the game
Infestation is a Survival Horror MMO that immerses players in a zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic world in which a viral outbreak has decimated the human population leaving, in its wake, a nightmare of epic proportion. Being one of the remaining, uninfected survivors, players must navigate the desolate countryside, exploring cities and scavenging along the way for items that will improve their skills and help them to survive as long as possible. As they explore the terrain, players will not only face flocks of, but also fellow players that may either be friendly or hostile. The decision to trust can be fatal, as other players may pose an even greater threat than the undead hordes that roam the decimated landscape.
