New H1Z1 game mode sends community into an uproar

    
86

The announcement of a new type of Battle Royale mode for H1Z1 called Green Dawn has the title’s early access community in a tizzy this week.

The crux of the outrage from fans is twofold: that H1Z1 is far too focused on Battle Royale instead of its survival mode and that existing game modes need more attention and work before tossing in additional modes.

There has even been a call for an H1Z1 boycott, which at the time of this writing has received 443 upvotes on Reddit. “A [Battle Royale]-centric focus has left a lot of your players looking to other games, which I won’t mention at this time, while still wishing for some progress in the mode they wanted to love, but for lack of reciprocation, was a love one-sided,” the boycott post states.

Daybreak did post a letter responding to the situation, assuring fans that survival mode was still being developed: “The truth of the matter is that the bigger features like base building take a significant amount of time to create and test before they are ready. So it may seem on the outside that we are not working on something because we are not talking about it daily but rest assured we have an incredible team of people actively working on survival content every day.”

Armsbend Avatar11 No they don’t. Not exclusively. Early Access is no different than a game that gives away a free Alpha or Beta. They are using players to see how well features work, discover bugs, etc and while they may appreciate the feedback its not the “right to steer the game”. They can utterly ignore everything the community says if they choose.

I haven’t played it yet due to my laptop not able to really handle Landmark on low settings :(  I figured it was the same engine.

I preemptively boycotted this game by not buying or playing it.  A pioneer, I am.

MrEllis rottenrotny Ark does run a bit rough, but I’d rather have a buggy game that’s focuses on Survival and crafting then a optimized game that focuses on KoS.

I uninstalled the game ages ago because they gave up on survival mode to focus exclusively on BR.  That’s not the game I paid for, not the game i care about.

agemyth Siphaed Well, considering they’ve almost annualized MMO development you’d have to imagine quality control goes out the window.

MrEllis Silvercat18  True, but the problem with DayZ is that they spend time making lots of weapons that nobody can either find or use instead of actually making the zombies work. Add to this the fact that you can find lots of weapons, but that you`ll probably never see a clip or ammunition for a good half of them and its just a pointless waste of development resources.

It’s quite common in DayZ experimental mode for the zombies to be turned off completely, because they are so frequently broken.
