H1Z1 began life as a zombie survival MMO set in a post-apocalyptic world where thousands of players must strategically align with friends and against enemies in order to survive the worldwide infection. Enter a world overrun by zombies and fellow survivors since the outbreak. This is
the Apocalypse! Fight for your life against the infected and the brutality of others as you attempt to live and see another day. Every moment is borrowed time with one question to answer: Will you survive?
In early 2016, Daybreak Games announced that H1Z1 would be splitting into two separate games: H1Z1: Just Survive, the base zombie survival game, and H1Z1: King of the Kill, the popular deathmatch survival mode.
H1Z1: Just Survive Key Features
Intelligent Undead – Just Survive’s zombies are equipped with emergent AI making each encounter as unpredictable as the last.
Base Building – Build yourself a defensible base to protect yourself from the elements, your enemies, and of course the undead. Group up with friends to create heavily fortified structures and pool your resources.
Weapons – Scavenge the wasteland to equip yourself with axes, bows, guns, explosives and more to help you survive.
Vehicles – Sometimes you’ll find a car, truck, ATV, or even a police cruiser that is still salvageable. These may take a lot to repair and maintain, but they offer multi-passenger transportation, the ability to efficiently scan a larger area, as well as an additional way to mow down opponents, be they undead… or otherwise.
Crafting – Just about everything that can be scavenged can also be used to make something useful. Make tools, weapons, traps, water collectors, explosives, shelters, and so much more!
H1Z1: King of the Kill Key Features
Battle Royale – Parachute in, grab your weapons and armor, and listen for the toxic gas sirens… Watch out for other players and in this kill or be killed game mode.
Ignition – An on-the-clock, frenzied game mode where players are equipped with an explosive device and must gear up, jump on their ATV, and gun it to the safe zone before time runs out.
Tournaments – King of the Kill is a highly competitive game as much fun to watch as it is to play. Online and in-person tournaments are often going on.
