Sony’s open world zombie game H1Z1 is going into early access this Thursday. The game will allow players to explore the environment freely, craft weapons, kill zombies and survive by any means necessary.
President of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley, shared some new information about the upcoming early access. In a series of tweets, he revealed that the game will have 150-200 live servers this Thursday.
“looking like we’ll have 150-200 H1Z1 servers on 1/15.”
“we’ll be announcing the distribution of them (i.e. rulesets, etc) in the next day or two. I think people will be happy.”
“even the disgusting PVE carebear servers will be ready day 1. I’m not happy about that but people tell me I need to get over it.”
Unfortunately, he failed to mention how many players a single server can accommodate but I believe more information will be shared soon enough.
Starting January 15, players will be able to try out a buggy and incomplete version of H1Z1. Based on your feedback, developers will make changes and improvements for the final build.
The final game will be free-to-play but players will have to pay for early access. There are two price options, one is the basic version of the game that will cost you $19.99 for access. While the other will set you back $39.99.
The later will have tickets to special event servers in addition to the game.
Along with PS4, H1Z1 will also be coming to PC and players who wish to know the system requirements for H1Z1, can view the minimum below or visit Steam for recommended specs.
