what horrible graphics no thanks give me day z
Is planet side 2 graphic which is 4 times better than DayZ graphics.
no this : http://www.dayztv.com/wp-co... compared to this : http://cdn.gamerheadlines.c... DayZ's world feels real. It looks like you're really out there in the mountains. In the morning you can almost feel the cold. H1Z1, on the other hand, looks fake. The terrain looks like it's from an alien planet, and the forests don't look natural. I'm excited for H1Z1 but there's no way it's beating DayZ in terms of immersion.
Edit: Wait...do you really think that image is what H1Z1 look like? http://images.gamenguide.co... The art style is less hyper realistic in H1Z1 if that is what you mean. How long has DayZ been in development for? I tried playing the arma version but those controls...pissed me off.
@mkis would you mind explaining yourself? These pictures aren't fake. Yeah the H1Z1 one is low res but I'm referring to the environment design, not the resolution edit : yes, this is a H1Z1 screenshot taken from the stream. This is H1Z1. You think I just made this in MS Paint or something? You can look here if you want : https://www.youtube.com/wat... The terrain just doesn't look real. It looks like Rust. If you've ever been outside in the country you'd know that's not what nature looks like
I love how that comment got you in your feelings . Lmao 😅😩😂
no it's fine I am just a misunderstood genius. I'll return to my dungeons now and I will come back when the world is ready for my superior online zombie survival terrain opinions
Agree with Timesplitter H1Z1s art style does not suit the seriousness of the situation, A zombie outbreak in warm bright colours? what? DayZ will more than likely be the more immersive game but I have to say H1z1 just looks like another piggybacker on DayZs popularity. Have to say though last I played DayZ the polish was terrible, combat looked and felt atrocious as did the gunplay. The animations were horrendous when zombies decided to do the benny hill dance towards you. Overall DayZ shows promise but its being made on a terrible engine which has a track record of terrible animations, buggy terrain etc
Well that is hardly representative of the final game, seeing as this is alpha build, and DayZ has been in production for much, much longer. This build has been put together to have something playable, to gain supporters of concept at an early stage. We know what the Forgelight engine is capable of with PlanetSide 2 and thousands of players, you telling me you don't think they will polish and have it looking as good as PS2 at some point? By the time DayZ is finally released, SOE will have polished H1Z1 to a stage beyond Bohemia can dream of. The conditions you described there for DayZ, we haven't even seen a version that can remotely be used as comparison. And horrible animations and bugginess, sets back immersion - it doesn't propel it, in my opinion. ----- @ Einhert Really? How much zombie outbreak fiction have you read/seen? Do you think that a virus killing people and turning them into zombies means that the world is always going to be cloudy and rainy? Seriously? If anything it means the world will be more restored to its original state before humans were a deep part of it. Like you said though, DayZ's engine is terrible for what they're trying to do, and it can only handle 140 players. H1Z1 may look like it's piggybacking on the success, but H1Z1 will end up achieving more and being more successful before Bohemia can get their act together and release DayZ in a worthy state.
DigitalRaptor, it's more about the style of the visuals that they have chosen for the game than it is about the engine's capabilities. It's pretty much established that DayZ's engine is broken and the controls feel like your character is stuck in a barrel of molasses, but this conversation we're having here is only about the visuals and the immersion factor of those two games. DayZ just nailed that part beyond anything else that has been done to this day. DayZ with a good engine would be the ultimate zombie game. Now H1Z1 is coming with a good engine but they decided to go with a cartoony style and this feels like a terrible, terrible waste of potential to me. H1Z1 is releasing in a few weeks in early access. The game's visuals won't change that much from now on. They'll mostly just be adding features and content
@Timesplitter14 'this : http://www.dayztv.com/wp-co... compared to this : http://cdn.gamerheadlines.c... ' They're not even the same weather/lighting conditions - how's that a valid comparison in terms of immersion? 'It's pretty much established that DayZ's engine is broken and the controls feel like your character is stuck in a barrel of molasses, but this conversation we're having here is only about the visuals and the immersion factor of those two games.' You don't seem to be able to comprehend the fact they're interlinked. Crap controls and a buggy engine completely ruin any sustained immersion.
@Timesplitter - I've seen few comparisons more worthless than that one, so congrats for that I guess. A buggy engine with below average animations kills immersion much faster than a slightly different art style ever will.
Coming to pc first, gotta love steam early access. no waiting for ages
Paying to be a tester. Gotta love it.
Surely it is like preordering a game and getting to play it before it comes out?
is it coming out on both pc and ps4?
Yes, but PC first and no release date yet for PS4.
its not really announced if the full game coming out on pc first but it seems like it. They are however releasing an early access unfinished version of the game on pc soon.
I certainly wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley.
So, is this game coming to PS4?
Well it is published by SOE.. Same as DC Universe, so its a no brainer really.
"H1Z1 launches later this year on PC, first through Steam Early Access, and then as a final product sometime later. But could the game also come to the PlayStation 4 some day? Smedley hasn't ruled it out." "We're focused on getting it out on the PC first. As a Sony company we're really excited about PS4 and the opportunities we have there" http://www.gamespot.com/art... If you ask me, that means we aren't getting a PS4 version for at least a year
You have to put into consideration that this game has been in devolpment since January with a 20 man team. About weather, rain is confirmed as well as wind effects. So give the game the benefit of the doubt and don't compare it to something that has been in devolpment for like 2+ years...
Not really a matter of 'if', rather 'when'.
dying light is better
From what I've seen they are two totally different games aside from both of them having zombies. I think both have a chance to be good. I will find out as soon as I catch up to you in time I guess.
So, you've had in-depth playtime with both these titles then, yes? Also, where are the games going to be come release window? I need specifics, considering your apparent wealth of information may be rendered useless at the time both games are released, considering H1Z1 can easily take different design paths between then and now. Thanks in advance. I might feature this in an article for Hardcoregamer.
Def Next Gen Graphics
scary but not accurate. what's the design from? I don't remember zombies in movies looking like that.
zombies aren't real they can do whatever they want
Of course Zombies are real, Iphone and xbox customers are Zombies.
Tell that to salt bath.
Looks funny actually .
can't beleive that u guys think this looks better than day z ...Seriously not even close looks like a last gen game deny all u want not impressive @ all that is a fact!!!
I agree with you, but DayZ looked very rudimentary at first too
I love DayZ but I rather have smooth gameplay and the possibility for it to visually look better a year down the line (h1z1). Than DayZ with lets be honest a buggy mess at the moment that looks nice.
First time Ive took the time to look at this game. Looks like a bit of a joke? Early days though so not fair to judge. If it plays anything like State of Decay Im interested.
If it plays like State of Decay I will have to pass. Don't get me wrong I liked SoD it just lacked a lot in its overall game design. I also don't want it to play like DayZ. If all games played the same what would be the point in buying new games? I want it to bring something new which by what they have planned it will, but only time will tell how good it can actually be.
Yeah if it was exactly the same Id pass, I just mean if it was as good. I find it hard to put into words, but before I actually played SoD I thought it looked crap, but ended up loving it. Id love to see some originality from this.
Here you go. You can compare the 2 visuals now. https://www.youtube.com/wat... This is just WIP rain for H1Z1. Btw I don't class DayZ as a zombie survival game as it needs to add zombies first. And H1Z1 will probably be the first true zombie apocalypse survival game as it will beat DayZ to final release.
H1Z1 FTS (For the scares!) man
Well, The potential is there for sure but the graphics look a little flat and plasticy. I'm sure they'll beef it up before release or as time moves on.
God this game looks awful, I'm sticking with DayZ
If you own a PC...Just stick with DayZ. This team has no experience with zombie games and is just shooting themselves in the foot by showing this early footage. I've been able to spot several MAJOR flaws in the coding. Not to say Day Z doesn't have them but least DayZ hit box indicator on Zombies isn't "Fat Albert"...All gameplay I've seen if you shoot to the side of a zombies head you get a head shot...Awful coding.
looks great can't wait
LOL so DayZ people hating on this game ? i can't wait to play this game ! free to play and it's made by Sony Online Entertainment , a company that is trustworthy and thank god i won't have to pay for it like Dayz 30$ for a buggy alpha
You don't have to pay $30 for a buggy alpha. No one's forcing you. You can wait for the final release like the other smart people.
Yeah the fugly graphics and animations are a nightmare.
Is that a beggar? give me coin king sir...scary?...no.
H1Z1 looks amazing day z was built on a mod. Engine that's used in arma 2 h1z1 built from planetside 2 engine ground up Winner is gamers again you chose what game u like at the end of the day. Don't listen to a community cause 3 in 10 are trolls and bias or moaning. I grew up in the zombie gen I've plat dead nation twice and going for vita l, loved both dead island games loved dead rising loved resident evil love the idea of day z and hz1z loved red dead zombies where the hell are the gta v zombies. And let's never forget zombies ate my neighbours. Love zombies man infact going to watch return of the living read right now out
Meh...this zombie looks washed out and weak. Still, I'm looking forward to trying this baby out.
