A video has appeared online of the recent H1Z1 live stream with game designer Jimmy Whisenhunt and technical director Tom Schenck showing of 50 minutes of gameplay.
What do you think of the game? Will you be giving it a go or do you prefer other open world zombie games like Day Z? When you have watched the video let us know what you think of the game.
The live stream does confirm that the game will be permanent death so you better be careful. It has also been confirmed that micro transactions will only be available for non-essential items and not for items that will help you survive, so no matter how much money you have you wont be able to buy lots of ammo or the best guns.
As for a release date, details are pretty thin, but SOE president John Smedley tweeted recently: “you can play it yourself soon. and by play I mean play fully.” There’s also a post on the subreddit which suggests that H1Z1 will be fully playable in 4-6 weeks and was confirmed in one of the the games live stream.
