H1Z1 pushes out patch and trailers for both of its new halves

Welcome to the glorious era of trying to keep track of dual H1Z1 games at any given time. Yesterday, Daybreak put out new one-minute trailers for Just Survive (the PvE survival sandbox) and King of the Kill (the PvP battle royale) that takes players on a brief but disturbing tour of this broken world.

The team also released a chunky game update that included better player jumping, a nerf to AK-47s, a buff to motorcycle helmets, better vehicle destruction effects, a customizable reticle, and a greater variety of zombie animations and outfits. It looks as though this patch applies to both versions of the game.

H1Z1 split into two titles yesterday. You can watch the new trailers after the break.

Karl_Hungus tanek_09 writing on the wall you’ll start out with 1 game then split it into two for “reasons”.  So you get a sales boost for people rushing to get both games for the low price and another boost from a lolDiscounted price.  Just another bullshit scam run by the gaming industry.  

The whole thing is comprised of thieving fucks preying on people with the minds of dull children.  Gamers need protection in the same way mentally incapacitated people do.  I’m not sure that means new laws or cages yet.

It’s like an undead zombie that splits in two and just keeps on going.

Pepperzine I don’t play either of these, but this seems reasonable to me.

…that character is not undead though. He’s partially mutilated like that because some other character gave him a *little push*. :(

As someone who actually plays the game, I couldn’t be more pleased with the news of this split.  I’d much rather have different developers focusing on survival aspect and the battle royale.  It seems that whenever the survival fans want something, like increased zombie spawns, the battle royale fans want the opposite.  So, for me it is relieving to know that they are going to make changes that improve the experience for both types of players without inhibiting the other.

It says something when even the media is calling your ” two games ” halves…

It’s funny because there would never be the split if devs weren’t jerking around with their own vision. Sometimes people don’t know what they want until you show them. If the devs never introduced the king of the kill mode trying to see how much they could increase the appeal of the game, they wouldn’t be in this situation. When you set out to make a zombie survival game, stick to your guns and make a fucking zombie survival game!

Karl_Hungus Hey, if this actually gets the “Just Survive” part of the game moving along with more interesting mechanics, I’m ok with the split.  We’ll see whether development stays at “shambling zombie” or upgrades to “sprinting zombie” this year. :)
