MP1st - A few days ago we reported on a image that would lead to a new H1Z1 video, and with the livestream dropping many hints on how to unlock it, the video has now been found. Feast your eyes on the first official gameplay trailer.
I want to say this looks way too much like DayZ, but I understand it was likely an inspiration for SOE.
The stream to me showed that it was better, and way more stable than DayZ itself. Really digging the crafting/barricading system
I kinda got that vibe too. A more 'polished' DayZ.
The H1Z1 devs are doing a Q&A twitch stream right now http://www.twitch.tv/h1z1
These people been releasing daily info/footage ? I seem to have seen this on the frontpage everyday for the past 2 weeks.
The F2P is putting me off , people had to pay for DayZ MOD and it was filled with cheaters.. F2P approach sure won't benefit the legit players
@NMOR It has been confirmed that that the paid items are cosmetic. On top of that, you have to go find it which means other players are able to steal what you "paid" for. Not exactly a purchase-friendly approach.
Its coming to PC as well so some good competition to dayZ, Also stop taking shots at DayZ its in pre alpha as well
I was taking shots at SOE, if anything! :)
I hope there will be option for 3rd person view.
There is. They have shown it in a different video.
I think it's what DayZ wants to be. Even when it's finished (IF it's ever finished), DayZ won't ever be able to support the number of players this will (engine limitation). I'm digging the graphical style of this, too. They kept it simple to ensure good performance, but they went all out on the lighting.
This looks really exciting. Really loving the lighting design as well. Gives it a very isolated feel. I'm hoping like in Dayz when you die you lose all your items, but I also hope you can keep items in a safe house that will be there after you die. That way item management will play a very big roll. Do you bring that very powerful, but very rare gun with all it's upgrades and potentially lose? Or do you play it safe and bring a stock shotgun instead?
i wonder if we can set up like a fort or a safe place for a few days in game time or do we need to always be on the move like in the trailer.
I am hoping to build a fort or safehouse too. Would be fun to team up with friends and gather supplies together to make a safe house then when other players seek refuge there, you can get points for that. Build a small community of several safe houses together too. Waiting for details on what happens when you die, storing supplies, and ranking. Like leveling up guns to be a better shot. A lot of potential for this game.
A dayZ clone that will release before DayZ!
Lol, it does look like dayz! but need to see more. looks interesting
DayZ is an ambitious DIY project. This is legit.
What does H1Z1 stand for?
Good question, at a guess i would of said, Humans 1 Zombies 1, it's like some sort of undead football match.
Actually it's based off of the h1z1 hoax zombie virus that struck around 2009 when h1n1 was a thing.
hemagglutanin and Zombie are surface antigens. The number '1' refers to the specific sub-type of those antigens. The sub-types differ in their basic structure. (that was just me taking what H1N1 Stood for and thats what it came back with. Changed the N to ZOmbie lol
It takes it's name from the H1N1 Swine-Flu virus outbreak from 2009, that was apparently a hoax...according to some people, lol. They just took out the 'N' and replaced it with 'Z'.
Agreed, H1N1 virus, a play on letters. I find it very clever actually.
They just took the "N", and rotated it clockwise. :P
I think they rotated it counter clockwise actually.
A play off of the H1N1 flu strain. http://www.flu.gov/about_th...
Can I play in 3rd person view as well??
they showed the third person view in a recent demo, yes.
I think so they said it will be there I dont know if you can shoot in 3rd person but Iam sure you can run around in 3rd person. OT: Cant wait for this tohit the ps4 will hopefully be getting early access, need to support the devs ;0
I want to play in 3rd person also. Not a fan of 1st person I just deal with it when I have to.
Personally think this game should be first person. You shouldn't be able to see behind yourself in a game like this. Takes the suspense out a little. Glad there is an option.
@Highlife I can understand that perspective. I think an OTS camera view like Resident Evil 4 will be my preference.
They said it will be 1st or 3rd person view except in vehicles, which will be locked in 3rd person.
keep telling them what you want to see for this game, on reddit. i've seen some ideas from the community that were awesome,and i hope it keeps up.
I have a feeling this is going to be Meh. I will still play it to try it out. Just not really sold on it. Can't wait to hear the reaction of people when they find out DayZ is coming to consoles. At least on Xbox. It's all pointing to that. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
Why would anyone want that buggy mess on console? They can't even get it right on PC.
I didn't make the game or decide what was happening. I just read an article. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
BU BU BUT it's in pre-pre-alphaz!!
Coundnt care less about DayZ this looks miles better than anything Ive seen from DayZ and when you put into consideration they starting work on this game in january and its just in alpha, need I say more? watch this new gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I played Dayz the mod then downloaded the standalone and it was worse. they made it worse it is not coming to consoles for years at this point.
I have not actually played DayZ, I have been tempted.
you didnt notice the huge alpha warning game full of bugs???
@mopground yes but i still expected it to be better then a mod for Arma.
Problem is DayZ is taking forever and is still a buggy mess. H1z1 could be polished, beta done and updated numerous times before DayZ even releases... I think they are screwing up DayZ pretty bad, it may never hit mainstream and h1z1 is in position to steal that marketshare @dl - true they don't have as many employees and I'm not saying they aren't trying just that they are at risk to lose out
Might be because they don't have as many employees or funding to keep it up and running? Seems like Dayz is more of a indie game that is conceptually similar to H1Z1. Not sure why I get disagrees for saying it looks similar on the original comment.
DayZ will only support up to 150 players...if they ever get that far. Sorry. DayZ is going to slide into obscurity when this is released. Better developers, bigger team, more money, and an equal willingness to listen to the fan base for suggestions. In short, I doubt DayZ will ever see consoles, and if it does, no one will likely care. DayZ did a great thing in making the industry realize how much people want such a game. But they are facing insurmountable limitations due to their choice of engine and indie approach. Their ultimate vision for where they'd like to go is already being surpassed here.
what if they could make it so that people could get bitten and become infected. then there would be a incentive for them to live among the people without letting them know that they might turn, (for example if they get to bit three people once they have turned, they can start the game over with all of their equipment intact, whereas if they are unsuccessful in killing their allies, they would loose everything?) that way, you could have an infected individual cooperating with you until the moment they switch (: good idea no? I hope someone who knows how, would communicate this to the developers, since they are taking feedback right now.
reddit. that's your place to give them ideas.
Already looks like it blows DayZ out of the water. Of course DayZ will still be the darling of the elite PC gamers... since they seem to find bugs, glitches and broken 'gameplay' charming.
lol, well said yeah elite players wont touch this it doesnt have enough bugs...
And if there's any less than 50 required keys and it lacks an unintuitive UI, we of the master race shall not accept it!
This game could be a buggy mess as well for all we know and it probably is considering how early in development it is. But fine, you think this game looks better. No need to be a dick about it.
DayZ is in alpha mate. How hard is that to understand?
Ya in alpha for like two years before anything happens, starts to lose credibility when that's the excuse for more than 6 months
We get both so we don't care when y'all going to be getting this next year. How the weight for PS2 going? It should be out by the end of the yr or next right. We PC gamers have ton of games. Stalker dev are making a gave. Keep downplaying our games then turn around and beg fo them it only makes you look stupid. But hey PS fanboys constantly contradict themselves so its not anything new. Look at all the indie graves they use to downplay now using it to boost over xbone. Gotta love PS fanboys the worst of the worst OT it look good I just hope its not a grind fest like ps2. You would know what I mean you PLAYED PS2. Blind fanboys
This caused brain pain.
@D-Du It might give you H1N1 too.
I'm interested. Want to see more. However, so far it looks pretty cool.
Looking sweet, although the walking animations made me giggle a little.
I'm trying to stay into gaming as a hobby but it's so hard when everything just looks like the thing that came before it. What am I supposed to be excited for? Another reskinned DayZ or another reskinned Borderlands? Reskinned Amnesia? Reskinned Assassin's Creed? I really think if E3 doesn't show something equivalent to Portal or Littkebigplanet (by which I mean just as new and exciting as they seemed to me, not something actually like those two games) I might be done with gaming. I'll still pick up the occasional game here and there but it won't be my main hobby. It just feels like the big money has completely chased any creativity or risk taking out of any game that isn't a retro styled cheapo Indie game. I really feel like the days of the creative game with decent production values is gone and it's depressing.
i'm already kind of done with gaming. i don't pick up regular average franchises at all. i only pick up great games that are worth my money. most of the games i pick up are PS exclusives because they seem to be pushing the boundary higher and higher and indies are pulling out lot's of unique and new games too; which is a good news. right now, i'm busy dying in Dark Souls 2... i'll pick up Puppeteer free from PS+ next month which should keep me happy for a bit. i think i've just become wiser and i know which game is not run-of-the-mill and which are whether they are hyped or not.
The ones that's bringing the most ideas to the table is indie devs. Pub roll out rehash and gamers just eat it up. It some devs that try to give gamers a worth wild experience, but that is strinking. Its going to change though. I think they are starting to see that indie devs is showing them up. That's why big pub is stealing their ideas and telling their devs to do it. Sprinkle some shiney gfx and everyone act like they did something revolutionary
I meant to give you an agree, sorry. Gaming in the state that is right now, is sort of pushing out of it. I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember and I've never seen it in the state that is is now. I remember hearing about games and the new features that they packed or how fun and innovative the story was. But now,everything that's coming out seems to be either a rehash of someone else's game, some over-hyped terrible indie game or a sequel to game that should have ended after the 1st or second game. To be honest its been really boring. The most fun I've had lately is when I'm playing a classic game, emulators, TLOU or Skyrim. This is the reason I haven't picked up a "Next-Gen" console yet, and my PS3 just broke so I'm stuck to PC gaming. If this year doesn't change... I think I just might sell my accounts and be done with gaming.
That looks so awesome! Will be getting it for PS4. :D
I tried DayZ and I want to like it so bad... but, it's way too slow and buggy as hell. If they can pull it off well w/ H1Z1, this along with TLOU Remastered will be reason enough for me to add a PS4 to the living room. Is it concerning that I am only considering a PS4 based on zombie games? Probably.
I would be lying if i say it looks impressive. And i personally believe everyone else would feel the same if it didn't have the name 'Sony' in it. This comes from a ps+xbox+pc owner.
The persistence of the world is set to be more impressive than the visuals. But seeing as this is being built on Forgelight engine, which handles thousands of players and looks pretty damn gorgeous, I'm sure once they worked on it long enough, you will be able to witness the full scope of the game. This is still very early stuff.
You can see the F2P .... A Must play eitherway
