H1Z1  



Let's watch 50 minutes of H1Z1, AKA Sony's version of DayZ


10:00 PM on 04.18.2014



Sony Online Entertainment is making an open world zombie survival game called H1Z1. Yeah, it's blatantly going for the whole DayZ approach. You can't really blame them though. It's a genre people are really craving for, as evidence by how well DayZ and Rust have been selling.

Game designer Jimmy Whisenhunt and technical director Tom Schenck from the SOE team took to Twitch recently and showed off 50 minutes of H1Z1. There's a lot of walking, some driving, axes, zombies, and well nothing all that out of the ordinary. What do you think?

Also I'm not really a fan of the name H1Z1. I purpose we just refer to this as Hizi, pronounced like hizzy.

H1Z1 is a lot more playable, still a ways out

I stopped tallying at ten counts of the word "iteration" in the early goings of the SOE Live 2014 presentation for SOE's upcoming (PC, PS4) survival zombie sim H1Z1. Okay. I get it. That's why the game wasn't so hot when it w...more
