    Default H1Z1 - Free to play PS4

    EDIT - The original H1Z1 has evolved into 2 separate games:

    H1Z1 - Free to play Battle Royal mode
    Just Survive - Survival mode





    Looks like competition for DayZ. Keen to see how this one develops.

    Wanna experience your own "The Walking Dead" scenario? Read on.



    Below is borrowed from Link


    Sony has announced a new free-to-play massively multiplayer zombie survival title called H1Z1 for PC and PlayStation 4.

    The name is a reference to 2009’s "swine flu" virus, and the game is set 15 years after it appeared, in a world where it transforms people into zombies.

    “Humanity has been reduced to hiding in the shadows, searching desperately for food and water and anything that can help to survive even for another day,” wrote Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley on the game’s official subreddit.

    “But the Infected aren’t the only dangers in the world. Everyday life in the Apocalypse means dealing with all kinds of wild animals and the brutality of other survivors, as well as finding your next meal and a safe place to sleep.”

    Smedley said Sony’s vision for the game is a massive world that encompasses cities as well as desolate wide open places, “all connected seamlessly”.

    Players will be able to scavenge resources, build shelters, craft weapons, trade, and more.

    There will be vehicles and hunting, but not skills or levels. Players can choose a first- or third-person viewpoint.

    H1Z1 will distinguish itself with an emphasis on player ownership and building, said Smedley.

    “We want you to be able to form roving gangs that are headquartered out of an abandoned warehouse that you’ve taken over...or a house you’ve built from scratch after having cut trees down and secured the resources to make it,” he wrote.

    “We’re building in all the social features you’ve come to expect from an SOE game (grouping, proximity voice chat, voice chat for your gang, and many other cool social features).”

    H1Z1 will run on Sony’s proprietary Forgelight engine, and its persistent world will hold thousands of players on Sony-hosted servers.

    Player-created items will make their way into the game via Player Studio.

    Sony is still figuring out the game’s monetisation, said Smedley.

    “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," he said.

    “We are not interested in selling weapons. The game at its core is about survival. Our preference is not to sell anything that can help with that.”

    A release date is yet to be announced, although H1Z1 will hit PC first via Steam Early Access for US$20, and will possibly be playable in the next 4-6 weeks.



    Some gameplay.

    Seen a few things on this, hopefully they focus on the game itself and don't add any Pay 2 Win aspects etc.
    Running on the Planetside 2 engine it should be amazing,
    Definitely looking forward to this one

    Watched a vid last night an it will be possible to burn down someones house-compound. So instead of just hiding in there when you come a knocking, they will have to come out an fight an then shall have to put fire out otherwise it will burn to the ground

    yeah reading the reviews about the game, it'll be a game I won't play until they remove the P2W system, it's just bad and removes the enjoyment of finding items yourself

    PVP is dayz all over again - someone see's you first, your dead.
    PVE is really good to learn the crafting without being rekt by all an sundry.
    I will enjoy the pve when this gets released for ps4. Will it reamain a free to play game before launch? I bloody hope so

    They f*cked this game up pretty hard from what I hear. They were charging people for early access on Steam, and then despite them saying they wouldn't ever do it, they added P2W in the form of purchasable air drops that contain ammo/guns etc and insultingly enough, aren't even guaranteed to drop near the player who bought them. They offered refunds for the early access to those unhappy with the P2W aspect so I doubt it will be changing.

    Sounds like a mess IMO. I've wanted an open-world multiplayer/co-op zombie game for a long time and abortions like this just keep letting us all down. If it is still free at launch and anyone else plays it I might give it a go, but it sounds like they've killed it before it even began.

    Air drops have been nerfed an they are constantly patching it almost daily an only 5% of the people who bought the game have asked for a refund. The crafting in this makes the replay ability worth it in my opinion an if f2p when released i shall play this.

    The game isn't P2W at all. Reddit has stirred up a huge amount of controversy over it simply because on day 1 a very popular streamer was one of the first people into the game he was the only person on a server, called in an airdrop that bugged and landed right on him. The zombies that then spawn from the drop also bugged and didn't attack him and ever since people have been shouting that it is P2W.

    Wabuu you've said that it was insulting for them to not give you the air drop right on you, you realise that if they did that, that would actually make it P2Wish (but not even really then) the fact that they spawn in a random radius of 700 meters counters the P2W argument.

    It’s been out on PC for a while now though, not sure if it was paid then or free, they probably see the model that Fortnite is using and are switching to that, free game but paid skins etc.

    Yeah H1Z1 popularity on PC lags well behind Fortnite and PUBG.
    The PS4 version has been tweaked from PC version and from the few videos I've seen, PS4 gameplay plays better. Too much dependence on cars in PC (jump out, shoot, jump back in, rinse/repeat), no roadkilling on PC, etc ?

    Free to play, so very little reason not to give it a shot.

    Well I didn't get into closed beta hope that doesn't mean NO Aussie servers

    That pre order from what I can tell is bonus skins and junk
    I'll try it because I can't stand fortnite, just the style plus the high jumpy jump mentality and unless u r lucky enough to find a RPG you basically won't win
