Smed himself stated doing Steam early access.
Planetside 2 and DC universe online and dragons prophet are on steam
They really need to show more in-depth gameplay that isn't over the shoulder like in the very brief trailer. I'm rather wary because from that first glimpse it looks exactly like DayZ with Rust elements built on the PlanetSide 2 engine. Oh and fire.
Right now, this screams of bandwagon jumping because they know the genre is still fresh for the picking, and that is clear because of how quickly they are pushing the game out to the public. We'll be getting early access in under a month, with paid access most likely the case if Landmark is anything to go by.
Everything that Smedley is talking about sounds interesting, but I don't know if it could be feasible. If this is going to take place on one giant server, how well will player interaction outside of America go? Will I lag terribly if I'm in Australia? Will there be local shards? That's one of the beautiful things about DayZ and Rust, I can run a local server and get the best experience possible. Its just like any FPS, lower pings are far more reasonable and allow for better enjoyment.
In saying all that, what I have heard sounds interesting. I love this genre because it allows players to be the dicks they really are, and not be punished for it. It allows experimentation and unique content to flourish because of player interaction. No two scenarios will be the same because of that gameplay. Hopefully H1Z1 can deliver on that, because they may have some rather large potential here.
That is, if they don't rush it out the door.
I really hope this does well on PC and we get a PS4 version.
Yes. It's confirmed. Just not a direct confirmation. May be it'll be a big announcement. Who knows.
I hate this.
Like Everquest Online they "confirmed" PS4 version, but it's not official (Like a PS Blog entry, etc...)
I think it's because PS4 versions will come long time after PC version.
Kind of sums up Sony for me. Such an infuriating company sometimes. They put out some great games but also make some absolutely what the fuck decisions. I mean you'd think this is the sort of project that just makes perfect sense for a PC/PS4 release. MS get it. They're putting the State of Decay MMO on XBone. Meanwhile SCE and SOE might work together at some point in time, maybe if the game is successful on PC.
Ohhh, yes... music to my ears.No skills to unlock, no leveling.
