H1Z1 eyes battle royale season pass

Would you pay for a season pass to H1Z1’s popular battle royale content? And if so, how much would you shell out for it?

Daybreak President John Smedley was publicly musing about this idea on Twitter yesterday. “Seriously considering doing a season pass for BR. What would the right price be for a season pass?” he asked. In a follow-up tweet Smedley added, “H1Z1 is not just a game. We view it as a platform for other games. Battle royale is just the start.”

The battle royale mode throws players into an intense PvP match where the world boundaries begin to close in with the help of toxic gas. Some players decided to recently rebel against the setup by staging a hilarious mass “stop the violence” campaign even as their toxic doom approached. You can see how that ended in a video after the jump.

Not scrolled down yet but I’m confident of at least 2 posts from Golden Girl spreading her vitriol.

As for the season pass, I wouldn’t pay it as I don’t like BR so much as the main game. I’m happy to play it occasionally when I acquire the free tickets in game.

or…”What would YOU pay to get in on the ground floor of this amazing deal?!”
I don’t think I’m PvP enough for this question…can’t you gank people for free in other games? I used to be on board with SOE online games, but at this point I’m unsure even they know what they’re trying to do.

Estranged  People are just spoiled and have no interest in a game’s actual success or longevity.  They just want it “all now” and “all free”.
Its as ridiculous as a cat driving a car up to a taco bell drive-thru, and no where near as adorable.

So now someone just makes something up?
I played SWG. I think it was a decent game.  But I never really was a die hard member of it.
H1z1 is a fun game.  I’m not really sure why this bothers you.  The only explanation I can think of is that you’re a miserable person who leaves such negative comments across the internet everywhere you go.  Must be that.

Sinistar eLdritchMD again I don’t doubt it’s fun and I am actually looking forward to playing it a lot… when it comes out. I’m moraly opposed to the implementation of Early Access, not the idea of H1Z1 ;)

thanks for the pics, I do so enjoy seeing the hacker’s lament ;)

Well, no…if it was an actual /kickstarter. And of course if it was, the person would be in control how much they wish to support it. Thus, H1Z1 is much of a /kickstarter as MassivelyOP is paid *early access* alpha. Which isn’t.

eLdritchMD All moral standpoints aside, if you’re the sort of player who enjoys group interaction i thoroughly recommend H1Z1.

As a group we have a grand amount of fun with the player interactions, we’ve had clan standoffs, Car chases, Role Playing events, and some great gunfights.
That being said, the busier servers are absolutely rife with hackers, but so far i’ve been impressed with the ban-athons the devs have been on.

I’ve attached a picture of some upset children(hackers)

cald eLdritchMD Boardwalker yes. the “noone is forcing you” argument….

that works great until early access just becomes the accepted way in which games are released. It’s already kinda like that, as evidenced by everyone  here defending it so valiantly and the steam releases of the past couple of weeks.

it’s grteat that you like to test games in alpha. very commendable but you should then of course remember how alphas were before this nonsense. usually a lot more focused and specific in what is to be tested and shaking the systems until all the bugs fall out. That’s not how these early access games go… they make them sorta playable but clearly unfinished and then they just put them out for everyone to “test” and then you’ll see a bug fix /content patch every other week.. I don’t know about you but that doesn’t sound like an alpha that sounds like how things go post release in a lot of MMOs… just unfinished.

And it’s not a surprise that this is happening… they’ve already been paid, why care about deadlines and finishing your work? DayZ already sold 3 million copies… why bother hurrying?

I don’t know how many years the first generation of early access games have to remain in early access without any release in sight before people wake up…

Pay for the game, and then pay extra for different modes of the game?  Game monetization is getting terrible.

EatCandy eLdritchMD just because you enjoy it doesn’t mean it’s an acceptable business practice.
