H1Z1 – 5 Things Sony Online Entertainment Have To Get Right

Captain Camper of Gamers Heroes discusses the current flaws with the zombie survival genre and what he thinks SOE should fix if they hope to deliver the next-generation experience they claim.

"It’s barely been 24 hours since Sony Online Entertainment and John Smedley revealed their latest free-to-play MMO but the survival community is already throwing up concerns surrounding the features of H1Z1." (H1Z1, PC)

I know some of the wonderful community members of N4G rather read the title and take to the comments than the article so let me quickly add something from the page:

I have been covering Sony Online Entertainment’s MMO games for many years. From EverQuest to PlanetSide 2 and EverQuest Next, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in that time it’s this. They rise to the challenge each and every time. The reinvented the MMOFPS genre with the PlanetSide franchise and EverQuest Next is shaping up to do the same for the MMORPG world. If there’s one developer that can force the evolution of the zombie survival genre, it’s SOE.

So the criticism (albeit admittedly early) is from the standpoint of an excited fan, not a click-bait author as some may feel :D

My only question is will it be free or use the all-inclusive subscription fee SOE is supposedly adopting.

Constructive criticism to site:
***DON'T BEG FOR SOCIAL "LIKES".***

You have no business "asking" for people to like you on Facebook and rest while someone is trying to read your damn articles!

It's free-to-play and will not be pay-to-win. Almost exactly what John Smedley said during the video inside the post, so you can rest easy there :D

Don't get me started on social likes :D If a friend done you a favor in real life, wouldn't you help them out if they asked? It's no different online. We write guides that thousands find helpful, a little "Like" goes a long way :D It pops up for each user once every 60 days and can be closed.

There are far more intrusive social media efforts out there. It may seem annoying but it's a necessity :D
