Colin Mcrae Rally

A misleading product description led gamers to believe the game was an updated version of the PlayStation original

Codemasters has announced that refunds are being offered to everyone who purchased the recent release of Colin McRae Rally on Steam, following complaints about a misleading product description.

The complaints were levied at Codemasters by gamers who were expecting the game to be an updated version of the original PlayStation title based on the description, when in fact the version of Colin McRae they received was a tweaked version of the game released for mobile last year.

Responding to the complaints, Codemasters announced it will be offering full refunds for those who bought the dubiously described version of Colin McRae Rally from now up until 19th August. The company have also doctored the game’s description on Steam to make it clearer as to what is on offer.

“At Codemasters, we care about our customers and pride ourselves on listening to our community,” wrote the developers.“We understand that some people who bought Colin McRae Rally on Steam are upset and feel that it isn’t the game they thought it would be. We have now updated the product description for clarification.”

“Furthermore, as an act of good faith, we have worked with Valve to enable anyone that bought the game to claim a refund. The ability to refund will be available until the 19th August.”

“To process your refund, simply go to your account transactions page on Steam and then press the “Refund” button that is next to the entry for Colin McRae Rally.We hope this goes some way to restoring any lost faith and thank you as always, for your continued support,”
