H1Z1 will come to PC first and will cost 20$ to get into the Alpha/Beta and then it will become F2P.  It uses a modified version of the Planetside 2 engine. I did not see any other posts about this game so I created this one. Who else is excited? I love survival games

Gameplay Details

  • First Person or Third Person shooter
  • Zombie Survival
  • Night is dark and full of terrors
  • Player versus Player at it's core.
  • More than just zombies in the world
  • Base Building, Town building, Fortress creation
  • Can burn down things others build.
  • Lots of crafting. Probably the biggest thing about the game.
  • Vehicles are already in. Possibility of aircraft in the future.
  • Based off the United States.
  • If you die, you lose your gear
  • "No skills or levels".
  • "Thousands of players". I'm willing to bet this will be larger, playercount wise, than planetside 2.

Tech Details

  • PC first, PS4 later. "Well, we are Sony" when asked about the PS4 version.
  • "If you can run Planetside 2, you can run H1Z1 better".
  • "Orders of magnitude larger than Planetside 2".
  • Based of Planetside 2. Shares no tech with Everquest Next (so no Voxels).
  • Built in voice chat options.

Monetization Details

  • Free to play
  • Part of the All-Access subscription that SOE is launching this month. $15/mo for premium sub in all SOE games.
  • "you seriously don't need to spend a dime. We're still figuring out the monetization but we will telegraph our plans early and let people comment and we'll listen if they don't like something and come to a place where people feel good about it." -Smed, in this thread
  • Early Access ($20ish, on steam) in 4-6 weeks
