Smedley reveals that the game will have realistic weather effects, advanced day night cycles and reveals that something big is going to happen next week.
Man, I love the sound of that! Love dynamic weather, and it'll be awesome being able to kind of follow the rain as it moves along. Wonder if the rain will help cloak your presence (both visually and sound-wise).
Yes but then on a down side it could also hide the presence of zombies :D it could also muddy the ground making it harder to travel with vehicle, and perhaps the wind could carry your scent and the scent of the zombies and in game we could get a reaction from animals (such as a dog) or the player by them mentioning a foul stench! Boy that sounds cool!
That sounds great hope other devs implement this into their games
Hmm Realistic weather effects sweet!
Cool. Looking forward to finding out more. When I first read the title, for some reason I interpreted that as the weather will follow players and only rain where "they" go. lol
FML! lol That's a funny thought... XD Ot: Sounds impressive. I'm so looking forward to learning more of this new game.
Why does it always rain on me *singing.
Power of the Cloud.
I hope the cloud has a smile on it ^^
So I guess its not exclusive to the Xbox One then. LOL Very funny.
That actually made me giggle.
Day 1 for me not Day Z.../s
why are you pretending there's a rivalry between this game and DayZ? I'm looking forward to playing both extensively. I swear to god this website is having disastrous effects on people's minds
Choosing one game over another (very) similar game isn't really pretending there's a rivalry, but these games are so damn similar I'd say there is a rivalry every bit as much as there was between Madden and NFL2K.
I am all for realistic weather effects in games :)
man, the more info that comes out for this game, the more i want to play
now THATS the "power of the cloud" :-/
I hope it do not take very long for this game to get ported to the PS4.
Hopefully it won't. They should have plenty of experience given that they're finishing up the Planetside 2 port, which is the same engine.
That is a pretty awesome feature
The whole idea of making the world is really intriguing. Im getting a Walking Dead sort of vibe from this game. (:
Wait, so this game is coming to PS4?
not officially but their statement when asked about PS4 was : "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"
This game is what's going to make me happy :)
Any release date yet?
Big announcement next week from SOE about the game so we shall see then. Hope it's a date for the Early Access on steam :)
Mmm, I mentioned if H1z1 could have Stormy/Rain type weather in a earlier blog. Now, how about winter seasons with snow all around, and last, an easter egg of "Tornadoes", F1 to F5 types, they won't happen frequently, just very rarely, kinda like that giant Megaladon shark that jumps out the ocean in BF4. If you have these in h1z1, you can say to DayZ fans, at least in h1z1 we have snow and rare tornado incidents. I don't think they have tornadoes in russia which is where DayZ suppose to take place in, I believe.
This is what I wanna see! More exclusives being shared with the PC :)
This game is getting even more promising all the time. Day & night cycles. Various weather effects. Hopefully seasonal changes.
Sounds great, but some are acting a little too excited here. When you buy this game, boot up and get running about, the last thing on your mind will be 'Does it rain where the clouds are'. (Apologies in advance for being the obligatory internet asshole.)
Its a cool little gimmic, its things like this that add immersion. Ive dabbled in a little basic game development and after you get the game mechanics down, you can do a lot to make people say wow. A little wisp of dust when your character takes a step, some particles that leave the gun when it fires, shell casings flying everywhere. I think thats part of what made the original crysis so groundbreaking, they really added everything, is a very complimentary way.
