The War Z, later known as Infestation: Survivor Stories was a game that pretty much no one remembers fondly and the man behind it, Sergey Titov, is now creating another zombie game, Outbreak: New Dawn.

Infestation: Survivor Stories originally started off named The War Z but the name had to be changed due to the name being to similar to the World war Z franchise. Still, it turned out to be somewhat successful when it comes to the money raked in via either copy sales or the microtransactions. After all, the game managed to sell 2.8 million copies by 2015.

On the other hand, the reception from both critics and players is anything but positive, with many calling the game a scam while even the positive reviews on Steam are sarcastic in nature.

Fast forward to April 2020, and Titov's new zombie game is about to go into alpha testing with several promised features such as zombie hordes thanks to new AI, a world "with roughly 10 to 20 times more details [sic]" and superior netcode and performance.

Apparently, the "world's leading anticheat [sic] team" built the anti-cheat systems specifically for Outbreak. Had another game with the promise of a superior anti-cheat and netcode entered the beta testing just recently, one could think it certain buzzwords are used for Outbreak's selling points.

While there is no concrete info on who the world's leading anti-cheat team is and no in-game screenshots on the website, several different versions of the game are up for sale, ranging from $30 to $100, complete with premium in-game currency bonuses. Yes, the one used in microtransactions.

Outbreak's website also promises "unconditional refunds" within the first 30 days with no limit on gameplay time but it remains to be seen whether these will be honoured.
