H1Z1: Just Survive is a post-apocalyptic zombie survival MMO from Daybreak Games Co. The game is set fifteen years after an initial horrifying outbreak of the virus where players must survive against the infected, wild animals, and other survivors. The game was first announced by then SOE’s president John Smedley in early April of 2014. Heading to both the PC and Playstation 4 in late 2014, the game will soon be coming to Steam via Early Access.
H1Z1 is set in SOE’s own version of the United States, think Middle-America. The world has been overtaken by this epidemic and players will fight to survive. The game will offer a sandbox style of gameplay with a character progressions system, crafting, building and scavenging. The world will have all the tools you need to survive, and the use of the Forelight engine will allow players to interact with the world in a way that feels natural to what life may be like in such a situation. You can take the role of a farmer, creating food for your friends, or a gun-toting killing machine whose sold reason to live is to kill anything that walks.
