H1Z1 introduces hardcore Battle Royale, now with bears

How hard could it be, indeed.

Odds are good that you’ve had experience with H1Z1‘s Battle Royale gameplay by now if you’ve played the game for any length of time. So how could that mode expand without adding in a bunch of Japanese teenagers killing one another? By going hardcore. A new dispatch outlines the changes of the new Hardcore Battle Royale, which ups the stakes right from the start by adding zombies and bears into the mix. Seriously. “Bears have also found their way onto the playing field and they’re just as deadly as before.”

Players taking part in this gameplay mode will also be limited to first-person view and the matches will take place at night, limiting your ability to look around and know what’s coming. There are also no vehicles around for you to rely upon. Only first-place winners are rewarded by the mode, witch six new items available for successfully taking on all opponents. In short, yes, it’s pretty hardcore after all.

evolv_monbly There isn’t really much to it still. I paid for the early access when it first hit steam and got bored after about 9 days. None of the added features/updates have looked or sounded interested enough to get me back into it. I’m hoping that changes somewhere down the line.

Damonvile Faith77 Despite my better judgement, I did.  At the time he seemed really into fixing SOE’s image, they just went and did that whole radio play for their fans to give the game some lore, and a lot of the early stuff about EQN was sounding too good to be true, they seemed like they were turning a new leaf.  I don’t know if it was all just an act, or if it had to with Sony cutting SOE loose, but up till shortly before they became DBG, things did seem fresh and exciting for once. So yeah, I was ready to give them another chance after years of disappointments.  I won’t fall for it again though.

Faith77 you took anything that clown says at face value and actually spent money based on it ?

evolv_monbly What’s more honest than someone that paid for the game with their own money and has nothing to gain from posting it ?

evolv_monbly the reason the steam reviews are negative is because this game sucks, it’s about as good as infestation by sergey titov.

evolv_monbly Well considering you had to purchase the Early Access to be able to even review the game, those reviews ARE from legit people who actually spent their money to play the game.  Granted some of those negative reviews are from people who purchased it as a cheap game to play, and completely ignored the whole “Early Access” part, and then were shocked to find how raw and buggy the game was.  But those reviews are from people who played the product.

My unbiased as I can be review; You get what you pay for.  If you spend $20 for a cheap shooter, you can’t expect it to be the same quality as a CoD or Battlefield.  If you don’t mind a game that’s in a very buggy state, and that now caters to the tiny scale battle royale matches, you’ll probably like it.  If you’re expecting a decent quality game or were excited about this being professed as the successor to SWG, then you’re really going to hate it.
If you’re still unsure, then wait till it gets further developed and eventually goes free to play.  It’ll likely be in a better state by then, and you won’t have to worry about wasting money if you don’t like it.  There’s also a ton of streams you can watch, this site even does them for H1Z1, so you might get a better feel for what it’s like watching them.

Why should I? Smed purposely made statements like this in hopes of getting early access purchases from that specific player base. I wanted to play the game he was leading people on about; so I supported the game because he said the game would be similar to a SWG, in a Walking Dead like survival horror setting. Fine, that sounded great to me. SSWG players; you can finally come home! and less survival horror, and more and more tiny scale Battle Royale for the pew pew pew kiddies.
If he would have just been honest upfront about wanting to make a cheap, low quality shooter, I wouldn’t have purchased the game and wouldn’t care what direction they flip flopped developing.

Anyone that does not mind permanently losing all their gear, items, and character should probably be playing this offering.
Those that like to retain the fruits of their gameplay would want to steer well clear of H1Z1.
