T1 - Players hoping SOE’s post-apocalyptic zombie game, H1Z1, will make use of next-gen tech for ultra-realistic gore effects may be left wanting, as Sony confirm H1Z1 will not feature dismemberment.
That is a shame imo, for the genre of game I would have much preferred chopping off some zombie arms etc.. suppose It's not a massive loss
Agreed on both fronts. While it won't effect game design, limbs flying everywhere is pretty much expected from anything zombie. It adds that extra layer of gruesome mortality to the survival. Also, lots of moral dramas in the zombie genre come from humans enjoying cutting zombies apart and torturing them. When Smedley mentioned playable zombies I imagined a player coming back as a zombie, only for another player to chop off their limbs like Michonne in TWD and use them for personal gain. That would have been cool imo
its like a casual PG dayz
I hope everyone gets riled up about this and complains to everyone involved so we can get this changed!
It is if you lose your legs for the fact that you have no dismemberment. This is a feature that should be in all zombie type games as it is a classic feature of the cinematic genre that paved the way to the digital gaming experience. :,,( I will still play H1Z1. But at the back of my mind that perceptual thought will dwell on what could have been.
The probable reason they did this is because they want more money from all the little kids. I don't appreciate being given a lesser game because of reasons like this. At the very least there should be an M+ rated version and a child's version, I'm sure there would be enough people to play with either way. Maybe you'll have to pay to unlock dismemberment ;)? It's about time someone comes up with a simple adult verification system so we can stop getting the shaft.
Boooooo, so you can't chop off a zombie's leg and have it crawl after you?!
Exactly. Not only that, but if you decapitate the zombie without destroying the brain, the head should be on the ground still looking at you and wanting to take a bite out of you. I am disappoint.
Well, that's a bit disappointing. It's like the Gran Turismo 5 Prologue car damage controversy. Hopefully it shines through in other respects.
I couldn't agree more.
Don't see why there is a huge hype for it. When i think about this game and it's future i think it will be good but only after huge amounts of updates. DayZ looks more solid. This is a good start before DayZ come to consoles. I'm playing it day one but won't expect anything good. When i read about it it feels good but when i look at the gameplay i don't see the same hype. Hopefully they prove me wrong ^^.
It is like a porn movie whit condoms. Totally BS!
EXACTLY LIKE THAT... the same thing really..
It's like an action movie with rubber bullets.
They're zombies ffs, menacing cannibalistic dead people, not exactly something you will see in My Little Pony Make a mature game for mature gamers
Gears of War 3 has set the bar very high when it comes to messing up bodies. Anything less than Gears 3 levels of gore will feel a bit PG13.
Well this is unfortunate. M hoping the fun factor will compensate for this. But damn! Dismemberment is AWESOME!!! : ) "Dark Souls r 4 wimps" ? Bold statement.....BRING IT ON ALREADY! We all wanna c 4 ourselves! : ) Have a good weekend all, Game on.
Gears has dismemberment. Dead Rising has dismemberment. But bot have been banned (to my knowledge) in several countries. Is this the real issue here? That's what I think. It's all about potential revenue loss.
I guess someone wants to keep the age rating down... For the love of... Anyone remember when games like this used to be for those who were MATURE enough? I can't believe this...
Announce the PS4 version already
Dismemberment does not equal great game That was the big draw card for the Soldier of Fortune series. Were they great games? People consider Day Z a great game. Does that have dismemberment? It's nothing. Honestly, nothing. The game is going to be GREAT! It's going to be a massive competitor to Day Z on both consoles and personal computers. It's going to be FTP. It's going to be massive. Not being able to remove limbs is made so insignificant when compared to the great features it has already. But hey, if you truly need to remove some arms, legs, and heads by all means go get a copy of Soldier of Fortune or Postal.
Well said. You need more bubbles!
Very true, but I do think in a zombie game it makes more sense to have it than not, at least as an option.
Fair enough, I don't think people play those games to dismember bodies.
But chopping off heads is acceptable? So much hypocrisy...
Well you see that's totally different, because… …awww hell I don't know.
Dont worry it will come in the expansion pack for an extra 50 dollars. Or if this game is FTP you'll pay extra for that privilege.
When none of that happens, I'm sure you'll admit how wrong you were. You're classy like that.
AHHHH COME ON IT'S ZOMBIES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD ! Why not ! people want their zombie games brutal and gritty ! dismemberment along with all this survival and weapon crafting come on AHHHHHH ! *SLAMS HEAD INTO WALL*
