Controversial Game ‘Hatred’ gets the Green Lights from players for Steam
The game got thumbs up from players.

The extremely controversial mass-killing game Hatred has officially been greenlit on Steam. The game landed in trouble with the release of its trailer which led to the universal uproar of the game being very extreme and had seemingly irredeemable violence. Post these accusations, the game appeared on Steam’s Greenlight service, which allows the community to vote on whether or not a game should be released on the store. Even after having many votes in its favor the game was officially removed. However, this was not the end of the story as Valve founder Gabe Newell personally stepped in on behalf of the developer, Destructive Creations, and put Hatred back up for a vote.

The game has seen overwhelming support for its release on Steam. After its reinstatement on the service, Hatred quickly reached the number one spot on the Greenlight Charts eventually gathering over 100,000 votes in favor of it being released. Those votes have been heard and, as the disclaimer on the official Greenlight page says, Valve has contacted Destructive Creations to being working on publishing the game. No official comment has been made by them yet.
