H1Z1 has sold a million copies on Steam

I think you’ll agree with me that Daybreak could really use some good news right about now, and today, it’s got some. Daybreak President John Smedley tweeted last night that the company has sold a million copies of zombie survival sandbox H1Z1 on the Steam platform, earning grats from no less than Crowfall’s Raph Koster.

Smed let loose with a few other nuggets of interest: He rejected the assertion that “hackers reign” over the game (“Untrue, but thanks,” he wrote); he told followers that “roughly 30% of the playerbase is playing BR [battle royale]”; and he confirmed that H1Z1 is headed for the PS4. Grouping is still on the way, Aussie servers are now open, and another 5000 cheaters have been banned. All in all, it’s a good time to be an H1Z1 player… and maybe a bad time to be a zombie.

ruthlesspno1 Kotaku and Polygon hate this game too. Apparently this game is Pay2Win and doesn’t deserve to be liked by anyone.

Honestly the game is more fun than any finished $60 game that I’ve played.

agemyth Cramit I agree with you in that the genre for these games is very young.  I have always wanted to try DayZ and Rust but never had a computer that could handle it till just recently and of course I had friends playing H1Z1 so I did that.

Thoroughly enjoying the game thus far and find it hard to stomach all the doom and gloom I see about this game on a lot of websites.  I realize there is a long way to go for the game and that the whole DBG thing has turned a lot of folks off.  Even the whole airdrop fiasco at the start of EA gave many a sour taste but I still find the game to be a lot of fun and worth the money.

  I can only hope that the devs will continue working on the game and add in a lot of features.  Some of the features that are in some of the other games have already been suggested and some already verified by the devs as being implemented at some point.  Although with the amount of updates, changes and dev communication I can’t imagine how so many folks have a bad view on the game other than they just don’t like it or feel it ripped off DayZ, Rust, WarZ or whatever.  In the end, this is the first EA I have ever participated in and I am finding it a great trip.

Never thought I would see the day where SoE / Daybreak actually hosts Oceanic servers.  Fingers crossed if EQN ever sees the light of day (pun intended) that they have an Oceanic server set up.

theeknighthood Yeah, I think people often think that in post-apocalyptic scenarios every person would be fighting for themselves, when in reality cooperation would still be extremely beneficial and necessary to combat various hazardous conditions. It would be a lot more fun to see large communities of players fighting against one another for resources rather than solo people hiding in trees waiting for head shots in newbie spawn camps.

Damonvile Peregrine_Falcon TronSheridan 1v1ing a zombie can be dangerous starting out. After you know how to deal with one you can usually sneak around taking them one at a time. If you are in a hurry and run around, zombie groups/hordes are a serious threat in both these games.

Peregrine_Falcon DayZ is plenty playable (assuming your PC doesn’t get crushed) and has a massive active player base for what it is. It has also sold 3 million copies already. It is fine.
